Here are the slides for an interactive workshop Olaf Lewitz and I presented at Agile 2015: Reinventing Organizations for Enterprise Agility.
We present an alternative view to fitting agile into larger organisations to achieve the goal of Enterprise Agility. Inspired by Fred Laloux’ book “Reinventing Organisations”, we offer a coherent and comprehensive model for organizational development which encompasses the past and guides us into the future. Agile finds its place in these concepts, and becomes a means to move between the model’s stages.
As a leader in an organization on its agile journey, you’ll notice at various pain points that increasing agility struggles with existing organizational structures, governance systems and management expectations. We’ve understood for a while that the prevalent ways of how we run organizations are not compatible with Agile. We’ve tried to package Agile in a way that makes sense to people in organizations working the classical way.
Learn what’s new and essential about this model: the idea of organizational models developing with the evolution of human consciousness, progressing in clear stages. Now being a time where a new organisational model is emerging, and what that looks like. Learn how self-management, wholeness and evolutionary purpose shape organisations where agile will flourish and which agile can help bring about.
