These are the presentation slides from a presentation I gave at the Lean Enterprise Software and Systems Conference 2010 (LESS 2010, http://less2010.leanssc.org/). The presentation is based around the paper I submitted that is published in the proceedings.
From the paper abstract:
Every organization has a design. As an organization grows, that design evolves. A decision to embrace agile and lean methods can expose weaknesses in the design. The concept of refactoring as applied to software design helps to improve the overall structure of the product or system. Principles of refactoring can also be applied to organization design. As with software design, the design of our organization can benefit from deliberate improvement efforts, but those efforts must have a purpose, and must serve the broad community of stakeholders that affect, or are affected by, the organization. Refactoring to agile and lean organizations demands that we have a shared vision of what the refactoring needs to achieve, and that we optimize the organization around the people doing the work.
