Whole Agile - Unleashing People & Organizations

In order to fully unleash the potential of workers we need to augment Agile/Scrum with Valuing People and rewire Organizational Governance.

Valuing People is about building a place where the whole person is welcome. Where there is safety, trust and authentic connection.

Organizational Governance refers to the approaches we use to run organizations: organizational structure, planning & control, roles & titles, compensation, performance management, information access, leadership and power. It has been well understood that these typically impact Scrum significantly.

  23. 23. “We thought we were hiring Michael to teach our staff how to 'do agile' but he taught us so much more than that. We started with an intense but stunningly effective Temenos session for the management team that was crucial to building the trust and connection we needed to truly function as a team. He facilitated a series of organizational development workshops that helped us understand and build towards a cultural and organizational context where agility can thrive and be sustained. Using a dynamic and highly engaging 'teach by modeling' style throughout, Michael helped us examine our team's values, mission and ambitions, adjust our structure and move us towards an empowered model of decision-making. When we finally rolled out Scrum and Kanban training, we were well positioned to support successful adoption. Michael is a master facilitator who applied expertise, experience, compassion and courage to navigate complex problems with us and put us on the path to transformation.” - Soo Kim, Senior Director, Digital Operations, CBC
