  7. 7. - PIERRE The farmer can meet the duke in an escalation process. But the duke won’t be able to handle this due to the line-of-command structure. The farmer has to accept that situation. This situation was very common in our civilizations until the “Renaissance” when Dutch Sailors create a Traders Guild. Most the structures are built on that mode. 7
  8. 8. 8 CULTURE MINDSET BEHAVIOR
  9. 9. - PIERRE Is agile a culture? If agile was a culture what are you doing with all the other cultures present in your organization? How can you be authentic if your uniqueness has to be reshaped to another standard? Agile emphasis diversity., multicultural diversity. 9
  10. 10. - PIERRE Is Agile a mindset? I can have an agile mindset in a non-agile organization. Having an agile mindset doesn’t guarantee agile. 10
  11. 11. - PIERRE Agile is a behavior, the behavior of people interacting within an agile system. A well set agile system allows people of any kind of mindset and of any kind of culture to work together. 11
  12. 12. THE STORY OF JASON 12
  13. 13. JUNIOR JASON IS A JUNIOR. HE IS VERY PASSIONATE ABOUT HIS NEW JOB. WHERE CAN HE GOT THE RIGHT INFORMATION.? HOW LONG SHOULD IT TAKE? 13
  14. 14. - PIERRE Because of being a junior, Jason must respect the line of command. The consequence, the information is either incomplete or obsolete. The only options for Jason to survive: • to accept this situation, to focus on his own career and to adopt the same attitude • to use politics for his own purpose and get closer to the authority • to address the problem and get fired • to leave the company. 14
  15. 15. JUNIOR JASON LOVE TO DANCE. HE MEETS ELSA, THE ASSISTANT OF THE CEO, AT THE SALSA COURSE. THEY BECOME CLOSER. THEY TALK A LOT TOGETHER, THEY TALK ALL THE TIME ABOUT THE COMPANY DURING THEIR FREE TIME. JASON HAS NOW MORE INFORMATION THAN HIS SUPERVISOR. ELSA 15
  16. 16. JUNIOR ELSA this is organization 16
  17. 17. JUNIOR ELSA this is structure 17
  18. 18. JUNI OR AGILE MEANS ORGANIZATION OVER STRUCTURE. ELSA 18
  19. 19. - PIERRE You can visualize organization helps sociograms. or communication paths. “Organisation” is how social structures are lived. Like described in the Scrum X approach, the agile organization is shaped to enforce communication and co-creation. 19

  26. 26. W H A T I S T H E W O R K I N G M O D E L ? RESPONSIVE ORGANISATIONS crowd The crowd is flocking like birds with simple rules: point to the destination (expected outcome) avoid collision (alignment) follow the lines (strategy) BUILD A RESPONSIVE ORGANIZATION TO ALLOW EMERGENT BEHAVIOR. This simple organizational model should manage the iterations on its own. It is safe to fail container allowing the creation of both knowledge value and business value. 26
