Keynote: Company-wide Agility with Beyond Budgeting, Open Space & Sociocracy

195 views

Published on

Today companies are expected to be flexible, rapidly responsive and resilient to change - which, basically, is asking them to be agile. But doing agile (the mechanics) is different from being agile (the mindset).

The mindset lets you apply flexible agile patterns - not only for software development teams, but for the whole organisation. However, implementing company-wide agility isn't straightforward. It means combining principles from the Agile Manifesto (inspecting and adapting), sociocracy (creating equivalence), Beyond Budgeting (flexible budgeting and relative targets), and Open Space (passion bound by responsibility).

By showing what such a combination can look like, Jutta will reveal a path toward company-wide agility.
