How flat organisations support the innovation

  1. 1. CULTURE OF INNOVATION MEETUP Bárdos Kristóf
  2. 2. MY PROFILE My profile - tech & social entrepreneur - consultant, ceo, sales, bizdev, orgdev Companies: Digital Natives - digital product development Nostromo - lean product management tool Green Fox - education SocialFokus - community of social entrepreneurs
  3. 3. WHAT IS CREATIVITY? Creativity is an attitude: I want to make it better than I did it yesterday Also, It is a hidden decision in the background to use the extra capacity
  4. 4. WHAT CREATIVITY DO WE NEED? big ones: 1-4 times in a year new business models, client acquisition, technology etc. … and small ones: 1-4 times in a day iterate on the CRM structure, change the office food ordering
  5. 5. What makes people creative? We bet on these: ● learning. to widening perspectives ● responsibility. to understand it’s my problem (the hardest part) ● commitment. to people, common or personal goals ● freedom. to make mistakes and be agile ● appreciation. to say thank you ● feedback. to self-reflection ● leadership. to be a role model
  6. 6. I’d like to showcase some methods & tools we practice Digital Natives, Green Fox, SocialFokus CASE STUDIES
  7. 7. ORGANISATION: FLAT SELF-ORGANISING COMMUNITIES process: Holacarcy - hierarchy between roles, well designed, good for new companies. High efficiency “DiNacracy” - transformation process for up and running companies - Medium efficiency in execution during the transformation Open network - community of individuals and companies with the same purpose. Lower efficiency in execution, but very purpose oriented tool: glass frog
  8. 8. ● what is my responsibility: Divided by “circles” and “roles” ○ pool system to rotate tasks ● … everything is my responsibility: ownership ○ Co-ownership based on time, peer-review, seniority ● transparency: EVERYTHING… salaries: formula based (towards badges, self-set) ○ based on work experience, seniority RESPONSIBILITY
  9. 9. ● Alignment between company strategy and personal goal setting ● Dedicated time and budget EXAMPLE: Elixir last year was a “only” a self development pattern, today it is a main strategic goal in Digital Natives ● process: SMART individual goals / circle level company goals ● tool: small-improvements, spreadsheet SELF-DEVELOPMENT
  10. 10. ownership: bigger investment in cash or resource, selling the company ● process: voting ● tool: loomio or doodle circle, individual: all the other thing… ● process: advice process, based on collective wisdom ● tool: loomio, slack DECISION MAKING
  11. 11. Let me explain it... Can I buy a new laptop? 1. ask your peers 2. consider honest feedback 3. your call to make the decision, no acceptance Why? Because we trust you.
  12. 12. Agile is naturally pragmatic, not only for software development. plan, do, track, iterate. we do sprints in marketing, organisation development etc. ● process: sprint, retrospective, SMART goals ● tool: Nostromo for task management and reporting, spreadsheet for goals FREEDOM: AGILE IS DELIBERATING
  13. 13. 360 peer review in writing NO manager review, but group retrospective ● process: continuous retros, instant feedbacks, 360 twice a year ● tools: small-improvement for 360, plenuum for instant FEEDBACK Making mistakes is good. But don’t repeat the mistakes.
  14. 14. Leader is not a boss ● hardest challenge to awake self-leadership ● encourage people to take What is CEO in a self-organising structure? ● He is to protect the company culture and ground rules ● Role model ● Create safe place for people LEADERSHIP
  15. 15. What makes people creative?We bet on these: ● learning. to widening perspectives ● responsibility. to understand it’s my problem (the hardest part) ● commitment. to people, common or personal goals ● freedom. to make mistakes and be agile ● appreciation. to say thank you ● feedback. to self-reflection ● leadership. to be a role model
