Management 3.0 - Brochure

  1. 1. MANAGEMENT 3.0 change and innovation practices
  2. 2. introduction Agile Leadership Practices Management 3.0 is a workshop, a course, a couple of books, and a collection of concrete practices, to inspire managers and team members, who face the challenge of transforming their organizations to be more innovative, with a higher productivity. We achieve this by providing guidance and practices, and by applying new thinking to the craft, art, and science of management and leadership.
  3. 3. introduction The Management 3.0 workout practices aim at leaders and knowledge workers who are trying to be more agile and lean in their approach to management. The courses and workshops typically draw a mix of team leaders, development managers, IT directors, agile coaches, HR managers, project managers, scrum masters, product owners, and creative workers. The team loved the game today, and are thinking of reorganizing themselves into more stable teams rather than product teams. Next week we’re doing an exercise to prioritize everyone’s hardware requests. If it goes well, we’ll be creating our new company compensation system as a team. It feels good! Thank you! Paul Klipp, President of Lunar Logic in Krakow, Poland
  4. 4. introduction Workshops, Courses & Tutorials Whether it’s a standard two-day course, a custom eight-hour workshop, a four-hour tutorial, or a brief 1-hour talk, all Management 3.0 events are designed to make a lasting impression. Management 3.0 has 8 major topics, which are continually refined and supplemented. The most important goal for Management 3.0 events is for people to take action to improve their organizations. All events adhere to the following principles: theory and practice in small chunks; clear and effective visuals; inspiring stories and metaphors; fun games and exercises; focused group discussions; and concrete practices with tangible results.
  5. 5. introduction Just the right amount of theory vs. exercises, general experience vs. each participant’s experience, oneway teaching vs. two-way sharing/feedback. Claudia Daniela Hosu, ScrumMaster at Small Footprint, Romania

  16. 16. facilitation Storytelling and Visualization The human brain is perfectly equipped to deal with stories and visuals. That’s why we designed the Management 3.0 materials with visualization in mind, and it is why all Management 3.0 facilitators are fine storytellers. With the help of sticky notes, markers, flip charts, and whiteboards the facilitators welcome participants to visualize their management & leadership problems, and to share their stories and solutions with each other in engaging ways.
  17. 17. facilitation I liked the mix of play and listen. I liked that every topic started with storytelling. Christoph Oberle, Management Consultant, Germany
  18. 18. facilitation Addressing Problems, Discussing Solutions In our courses and workshops the facilitators invite participants to share their biggest challenges in management & leadership. The problems are sorted and prioritized, and they are turned into a backlog of discussion items. Very involving and with a very flexible agenda. The result was that we did some very concrete problem solving, including making use of the participants’ varied experience. Signe Bramming Andersen, Manager at DONG Energy, Denmark All problems are unique. And yet, similar challenges have all been faced before in one way or another. Assisted by all participants the facilitator attempts to find solutions, practices, suggestions, and references for all prioritized problems.
  19. 19. facilitation
  20. 20. facilitation Learning by Playing, Practicing by Exercising Each of the Management 3.0 topics includes at least one game or exercise. In groups of three to seven people the attendees run simulations of real-world management issues. Sometimes the participants play as different line managers against each other. Sometimes they act together as one team leader, sharing their ideas while working on a problem. I especially liked the delegation cards and the motivation exercise, plus some of the stories. Pia Andersson, Manager Strategy and Projects at Hi3G, Sweden Every exercise is debriefed afterward, so that people can discuss their findings, internalize what they learned, and bring up questions and insights to be addressed by the whole group.

The principles of complexity thinking will enable you to create your own agile leadership practices. The best feature, one that I have never seen in such courses, but always wanted, is the list of books worth reading. It makes the course only a starting point, for your own exploration on each topic. Łukasz Nalepa, Scrum Master/ Software Engineer at CUBE-CR, Poland

  34. 34. topic Learn How to Grow Structure How can we be Agile in a geographically distributed organization Organizational structures significantly impact how an organization works. Many teams operate within the context of a complex organization, and thus it is important to consider structures that enhance communication.

In practice this means that managers and leaders must act as change agents, trying to change the social complex systems around them. You will learn about the four facets of change management, which address the system, the individuals, the interactions, and the boundary of the system. Great course! One of the best I’ve done Damian Fasciani, Technology Services Manager, REA Group, Melbourne, Australia
  38. 38. exercise Moving Motivators Do you need to make a decision but are you unsure about the effects on people’s motivation? Do you want to know what motivates your colleagues? Are you hiring a new team member and do you want to know what makes her tick? Play Moving Motivators! My team will be using the Moving Motivators exercise, a problem wall and a happiness index. The biggest takeaway was to try many different things, tweak, and try more. Andrew Brown, Sr. IT Project Manager at University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, USA The games were very valuable. Robie Wood, Project Management Consultant at showVALUE LLC, Washington DC, USA
  39. 39. exercise
  40. 40. exercise Delegation Poker Delegation often comes down to “Either I do it, or you do it”. But in truth there are 7 levels of delegation. Use Delegation Poker to make clear who’s responsible for what and on what level.
  41. 41. exercise The exercises were very enlightening, whether in sharing my own experiences or listening to others - it certainly caused me to pause and reflect upon my own “style” and recognize opportunities for growth. David Soule, Section Manager at Erie Insurance Group, USA
  42. 42. exercise Meddlers A very popular exercise is the Meddlers game (named after a well-known German board game). The exercise allows players to visualize and discuss organizational structures, in a way that matches the concept of value networks.
  43. 43. exercise What I appreciate the most about the facilitator is that he does not offer simple trite answers that might work in very specific organizations. Rather, he gives his students the tools or frameworks to help them arrive at their own solutions. Mike Evans, Iteration Manager at Nationwide, USA
  44. 44. exercise Kudo Cards There are many wrong ways to reward employees. A simple but effective approach is the use of kudo cards, which enables people to give each other small tokens of appreciation. It is very refreshing to see that Management 3.0 is considerably more oriented toward empowering the team and making it happy, as opposed to traditional management that was focusing on performance. Luc Duplessis, Agile Product Owner at Accedian Networks, Montréal, Canada
  45. 45. exercise

  50. 50. conclusion Management 3.0 Agile management is an often overlooked part of Agile. Managers need to learn what their new role is in software development organizations in the 21st century, and how to get the best out of Agile. This book will help them. How to Change the world “How do I deal with my crappy organization? I like my work but I don’t like what our management is doing. How do I deal with it?” Well, it’s take it, leave it, or change it… This booklet for those who choose option 3.
  51. 51. conclusion Mangement Workout Management Workout will be a book with actionable management advice. Practical things that people can do next Monday morning, in order to grow an organization that is innovative and healthy. A fad you say? Management 3.0 is far from it. It’s a fact that more and more organizations are moving towards agile methodologies. This demands a new way of thinking for leaders. Whilst many have developed a new mindset and practice it, Management 3.0 gives concrete tools, names, metaphors, and much much more that add to a leader’s tool belt. I highly recommend the workshops to experience it live! Matthew Aldridge at, Germany
  52. 52. The goal of Management 3.0 is to help you grow and transform organizations into becoming great places to work. ”But, I’m not a manager”, you say? So what? We believe that management is not only the managers’ responsibility. It is everyone’s job! Therefore, Management 3.0 is not only about what managers can do, but also about what you can do. MANAGEMENT 3.0 change and innovation practices
