An introduction to the concept of ORGANIC Agility presented in issue 62 of May 2018
Andrea Tomasini and Dave Snowden presenting at "Agile Beyond IT" in Berlin on 13 March 2019
agile42 founder Andrea Tomasini and Cognitive Edge Chief Scientific Officer Dave Snowden will take together the stage for the keynote From Agile to agility during Agile Beyond IT, the conference held in Berlin from 12 to 14 March 2019.
Despite the Agile manifesto commitment to Individuals and interactions over processes and tools the reality too often degenerates into certification schemes focused on structured methods or even worse it degrades into tool implementation. Approaches assume a manufacturing model (the engineering metaphor) rather than a network of relationships between individuals (the biological metaphor). Requirements are fragmented, the bigger picture and wider opportunities are lost. Excessive focus on predetermined goals and KPIs fails to support continuous learning and adaptation through experimentation. In this presentation we will look at the next generation of organizational agility, creating real-time feedback loops, adaptive processes and fostering innovation - working out what is a minimal scaffolding or structure around which new and innovative applications can emerge.
