You’ve been there before. You know better, you have a good idea to support your agile transition. Work starts, things work well at first, but then you bump against organizational barriers. Sales, Marketing, Support all have a different language and a different view into the value stream. How can we start an organizational change without a shared model of how the company should be organized?
Those are all symptoms of a gap in our Agile community: we lack a organizational model for company-wide Agile adoption and company-wide continuous improvement. Examples of this include: no company-wide flow-model (kanban) from idea to sales to idea and so on; we have no way to evaluate where the bottlenecks are the moment they are not in “our silo”. We lack a theoretical model for designing software organizations.
A theory is something that informs day-to-day decisions and experiments (e.g. PDCA). In this talk we will explain an
organizational design concept developed over several years, and use concrete examples to describe a model that you can use in support of - not only your agile adoption - but your company improvement process and your new organizational design.
