The Anatomy of an Agile organisation

Agile is not ending at the Product Development level, and is not only about Software Development

Hi all, I am going to held a keynote at the second edition of the Manage Agile conference in Berlin, on October 23rd. I will be pretty much trying to challenge some wishful thinking about the idea that it is possible to create a "blueprint" of an Agile organization. This would ultimately contradict the concept of "Agile" as an emergent and adaptive approach to work. I will share with you more about what are the element which make Agile Team performing. How many of those same elements can be used at an organizational level? I won't try to define an "Agile Organization" but present what type of anatomy an organization should think of adopting to start moving their culture to a more supportive collaborative culture for healthy Agile grwoth. As Agile is going mainstream, more and more companies are looking into already "backed" solutions to adopt. Well the success of Agile is strongly based on a different way of thinking, a cultural change, a transformation as many like to call it.

So come and join me on October 23rd 2013 at 09:55 am, if you are interested in The Anatomy of an Agile Organization, told from a pragmatic and very Lean perspective :-)

Abstract: "Agile is mainstream. More and more companies are adopting it on the wave of enthusiasm, either of some internal successful experiments, or just because their competitors are doing it. Unfortunately though, the cultural change that follows the adoption of Agile within an organization can't be constrained to the IT department - Here things become tricky… 

There is a growing number of "frameworks" to scale agile but they seem to contradict many of the Agile Principles that make Agile successful. Out of many years of experience agile42 has identified and created many elements and methodical tools which support a long lasting and sustainable organizational transition to Agile on all levels: Leadership, Portfolio Management, Strategy, Asset Management, People and Career Management…"
