Probe your Organization – How you can implement a Learning Organization with BOSSA nova

Download to read offline

The volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous (short VUCA) world we currently live in asks for company-wide agility. Yet, agility in the literal sense that means companies need to be adaptive, responsive, fast, and nimble. Thus, although already created in the 90ies, the original idea of a learning organization, that is a company that facilitates the learning of its members and continuously transforms itself, is more relevant than ever. Yet, how can such a learning organization come to life? BOSSA nova is one approach to company-wide agility by synthesizing Beyond Budgeting, Open Space, Sociocracy & Agility. The key to its success are so-called probes – small, safe-to-fail experiments based on hypotheses derived from reflection on the current situation as well as on theory. In this session, I will share various probes implemented by different companies that can guide the probing in your company to establish a learning organization.

  17. 17. @JuttaEckstein | agilebossanova.org 18 Is Trust Cheaper? ◼ Background: – Traditional travel expense procedures are burdensome and assume people can’t be trusted. ◼ Hypothesis: – Such procedures cost more than they save and are demoralizing. ◼ Experiment: – Pre-survey and audit. Try for three months in a few units with other units as controls. Post-survey and audit.
  18. 18. @JuttaEckstein | agilebossanova.org 19 Can peer decision-making about promotion support alignment? ◼ Background: – Even very egalitarian companies have hierarchies that require a promotion system. ◼ Hypothesis: – If we use peer decision making to make decisions about promotions, we can separate performance review from decisions such as promotion that have an element of competition. ◼ Experiment: – Pre-survey to assess opinion on promotion policy – Try with a group consent decision making for deciding on bonuses. – Collect spontaneous feedback and post-survey after 3 months. If satisfaction improved, extend to other groups.
