Transforming Agile: The Beautiful Organization

When we think of organizations and agile transformations, how often do you hear the result being a beautiful organization?   In this session, we will cover how we arrived here with the culture prevalent in most organizations.  Then we will discuss how to move our organizations forward so they become “beautiful” organizations by transforming agile itself.  Darren Terrell helps organizations and teams realize their inner beauty.   He will provide tools to allow your business to not only survive, but thrive in the coming tsunami of change.  Break out of the old mandated cultures and practices and accelerate into a brilliant future.

Open Space w/ Diana Williams

Open Space format facilitated by Diana Williams

When: November 9, 2017  (Second Thursday) Networking: 5:30 - 6:00 pm Program: 6:00 - 7:30 pm

 

Abstract
For many, Open Space has been a daring and marvelous exploration of the vastness and the urgency of personal and organizational transformation. For others, it’s just an exceedingly effective, and efficient, meeting methodology.

Open Space is the only process that focuses on expanding time and space for the force of self-organisation to do its thing. Although one can't predict specific outcomes, it's always highly productive for whatever issue people want to attend to. Some of the inspiring side effects that are regularly noted are laughter, hard work which feels like play, surprising results and fascinating new questions.

If you are struggling with a problem, looking for innovative ways to motivate a team, or just want to learn from your peers - Open Space is for you!
