Agile Gurugram 2019 Conferecne | Leading through Being and Making - How India can improve global Agility? | Jeff Lopez

Session Title : Leading through Being and Making - How India can improve global Agility?

Session Overview : The Agile Manifesto begins with a declaration that there are better ways of developing things that were found by "doing it and help others do it". Later on, many experts decided that the better ways required "being agile": having the right mindset, a compatible culture, and scaling appropriately were the pathways to creating value.

Is this the best way to lead people to learn better ways of creating value? The answer to that question goes deeper than learning a slew of frameworks and methods offered through training courses.

India is the great fertile ground for agility on Earth. By drawing on the strengths of its own civilization, owning its own future, and mastering the fundamentals, India can help the world improve through agility on a global basis. This talk will bring us back to the Agile Manifesto and reveal how learning through making opens access to deeper levels of being, which in turn push and move our capacity to create vast amounts of value for all.

Throughout this talk will be a challenge to attendees to identify something to make in their world, and to use that to transform how they learn and teach and influence others to do the same.

  1. 1. Let is take our stand on the one central truth: the spirit of man, the immortal, birthless, all-pervading eternal soul of man…before who’s majesty the universe is as a drop. Every man or woman is such a spirit evoluted or involuted. The infinite power of that spirit, brought to bear upon matter evolves material development, made to act upon thought evolves intellectuality, and made to act upon itself makes of man a God
  2. 2. First, let us be Gods, and then help others to be Gods. “Be and make”. Let this be our motto. Say not a man is a sinner. Tell him that he is a God.
  3. 3. My method of work is to construct, not to pull down

  12. 12. Why India is the great fertile ground for agility… 32 Zest For Learning Comfort With Chaos and Ambiguity …at scale!!!!
  13. 13. “At the core […] is the idea that people should design for themselves their own houses, streets and communities. This idea […] comes simply from the observation that most of the wonderful places of the world were not made by architects but by the people.” - Christopher Alexander
  14. 14. “Living structure, or living order, depends on features which make a close connection with the human self.” “…our analytical thinking selves, and our vulnerable emotional personalities as human beings - are coterminous, and must be harnessed at one and the same time, if we are ever to really make sense of what is around us, and be able to create a living world.” “…a spiritual, emotional, and personal basis must underlie every act of building or making.”
  15. 15. 15 Fundamental Properties #1 : Levels of Scale “Levels of scale exist along with a scaling hierarchy. Repeating components of the same size and similar shape define one scale. Levels of scale have to be spaced closely enough in size” (magnification) for coherence, but not too close to blur the distinction between nearby scales” - Nikos Salingaros
  16. 16. ― Dr. Jeff Sutherland “As a medical school professor funded for many years by the US National Institutes of Health to study the evolution of the human cell, I designed Scrum to Scale like a biological organism from a single cell.” 39
  17. 17. Scale-Free Architecture • If you want to scale exponentially you need a “scale-free” architecture • Otherwise you risk introducing waste into the system and slowing the whole organization down • You will not achieve linear scalability • Scale-free architectures are pervasive in biology (ex. neural networks) • They are able to evolve to perform new functions more rapidly than an alternative network design Diagram of a scale-free network that contains components with a highly diverse level of connectivity. Some components form highly interconnected hubs, while other components have few connections, and there are many levels of interconnectivity in between. Scale-free networks are pervasive in biology. Computer simulations at the University of Chicago show that scale-free networks are able to evolve to perform new functions more rapidly than an alternative network design.

  19. 19. I am not given much to talking about plans. I prefer to do and show, and then talk about my plans.

  21. 21. Live a live!!! Add people!!!
  22. 22. Life is short, but the soul is immortal and eternal, and one thing being certain, death, let us take up a great ideal, and give up our whole life to it.
  23. 23. <Footer Content: Presentation Title, Partner Name, Other> 4 9 “Change leads to disappointment if it is not sustained. Transformation is sustained change and it is achieved through practice” – BKS Iyengar
  24. 24. <Footer Content: Presentation Title, Partner Name, Other> 5 0 Never loose the groove in order to find the right note. -- Victor Wooten
  25. 25. Live a life! Add people! Always make value! Iterate! Iterate!
  26. 26. “I would like to see India free and strong so that she may offer herself as a willing and pure sacrifice for the betterment of the world. The individual being pure, sacrifices himself for the family, the latter for the village, the village for the district, the district for the province, and province for the nation, the nation for all. I want Khudai Raj, which is the same thing as the kingdom of God on earth. The establishment of such a Rajya would not only mean welfare of the whole Indian people, but of the whole world”
