In April 2012 Andrea Tomasini had a Keynote at the Lifecycle Conference in Munich. He started his presentation with some information about Customer Capitalism and what are the changes in the business world over the past years?

A large number of economists, sociologists and even historians are dealing with this
question. And certainly they have the proper qualification to analyze the various farreaching dimensions of the changes. Our point of view is far more pragmatic. We describe the changes from the perspectives of Managers and Entrepreneurs, trying to give a holistic picture of the “What” and “Why”.

Last week, I facilitated a StrategicPlay session at ScanAgile titled “Agile Community Building – Using StrategicPlay with Lego”. Participants co-created a vision of the perfect agile community. We captured the teams presenting their models on video. Enjoy the inspiration!

The Agile Elephant

The first presentation shows “Agile” on the back of an elephant (the similarity to Discworld was intentional, I heard later) confronting the established mindset... Note the reference to Brian Marick.

Ivory Tower of Knowledge

Valuable ideas are created and brought to the customer. Flowers, a disco ball, and a flag, of course.

People Connecting their Thoughts

Cosy space, where ...

Agile Inspires Betterness

We currently witness the beginning of a new era. It has been given various names, as nobody is yet able to predict its nature. It’s been called the conceptual age, information is not enough anymore. Relationships become more important, where “knowledge stacks are replaced by knowledge flows”. Abundance, connections and choice change the game: “Mass is dead. Here comes weird.”

Classical strategic planning is based upon the assumption of a slowly changing future. This assumption is wrong.”

It’s a paradigm shift. We haven't yet figured out where it will lead our kind, as we can ...

Agile With Non-Software Teams

It is quite interesting to note how little most software developers know about hardware development. Many of us take it for granted that hardware development cannot match the pace of software. While this might be true for the case of the best software teams, able to update a software system every few minutes using continuous integration, for the common pace of biweekly software delivery this is nothing more than a false assumption.

At today’s ScrumTisch, the first chosen topic by the crowd was how to do Agile with non-software teams. We started the discussion with a short list of questions:

  • What to show at the end of the timebox?
  • How to set the length of the timebox?

Interestingly, these questions, although raised by the audience, apparently were not hot enough to actually get discussed... (the topic Agile Beyond Software is much broader than this post, I’m just covering what was discussed tonight—a touch on the surface...)

Hardware

It turned out, that the person suggesting the topic actually had a ...
