  • A core that’s about driving or catalysing change through practices aligned to the values of transparency, balance and collaborationA middle layer that’s about giving direction and outlook to that change in the form of customer focus, flow and leadershipA protective outer layer of leadership disciplines and working agreements that help create the environment in which learning can flourish. These are represented by the values of understanding, agreement and respect----- Meeting Notes (05/07/2013 20:19) -----Let’s start with that first set, the values of transparency, agreement & respect.We’ll see how the practices that exemplify these values drive change.
  • Let’s start with that first set, the values of transparency, agreement & respect.We’ll see how the practices that exemplify these values drive change.
  • If you haven’t guessed it already, we’re making our work visible in a particular kind of visual management tool, a kanban board“kanban” is the only Japanese word I’ll use, I promise! We really do make a point of using plain, everyday language.“kanban” literally means “visual sign” or “token”. These tokens – often sticky notes – represent work items, deliverable pieces of work that our customers would recognise,It’s quite a rich visualisationIt shows the work items’ different types (the colours). Different types typically reflect different kinds of customer expectations. Colour-coding these expectations helps us to risk-manage them appropriately.The columns represent the different states the work items currently occupy. They’re sequenced left-to-right to show the high-level workflowFrom across the room we can see at a glance how much we have, where it is, what work is blocked.Look a little closer and we can see who is working on what, when any date-driven work items are due to be delivered, and so on.All this visibility for work which is normally invisible - until we deliver it to the customer it exists only in our heads and on our computers!Fully-fledged kanbansystems have another feature which we’ll come to shortly.
  • Before we do that, let’s see how important these visual elements are for driving change.As a team, we share something visible around which we can self-organise.Self organisation is a beautiful thing!not just people acting with autonomyself-organisation refers to the ability of systems to reconfigure themselves without the need for outside directionself-organisation brings adaptability and resilience. These are good qualities to have.Reconfiguring the system may involve modifying the work management system. A lWith kanban, this is an easy and cheap thing to do. If we find that the current board design doesn’t reflect our best understanding of how things should work, we change it!
  • This is a high leverage activityRub a line out, draw another one in, move a few stickies. Alternatively, a few clicks of the mouse if we’re using an electronic tool.For next to no cost, we can effect change on the system, yielding perhaps significant change in how it behaves.That change remains in place as long as we need it – we’ve captured learning.
  • Team policySends a message that we’re serious about finishingAlso that we’re not keen on sucking risk into the system in an untransparent way – let’s have risks & priorities managed on the business side where that’s appropriate
  • Big project - $1m of WIP on the board
  • The board is a point-in-timevisualisation. When we take a time-based view, we can verify that our changes are having the effect we desire.In this picture – a CFD – we see the ballooning of work followed by step changes, the big batch transfers, then something else - flow
  • task focus, role focus, team focus, project focus, product focus, company focus, technology focus - the list goes onSo many ways to lose sight of what we're in business for!
  • Controversial? Perhaps with some, but not with meIn my mind, Leadership and change are very hard to separate.Change without leadership seems undeliberate, accidental evenAnd leadership without change is what, exactly?
  • There’s nothing accidental about this scenario – it’s very deliberate, the result of years of patient work.Let’s see how it works
  • ReflectionHow do you keep focus on needs of your customers, to the flow of work across your organisation, and on the challenge developing leadership?In your organisation, we those things the subject of occasional flurries of activity or in the air all the time? If the latter, how do you achieve that?
  • Agree to keep moving forward insafe-to-fail increments based on understanding and captured learning
  • Reflect:Do you have (or demonstrate yourself) leadership that is disciplined, or leadership that acts on whim?Where would you start if you wanted to change that?
