Empowerment, self-management and collective intelligence are signs that an Agile organization has matured to the point of focusing more on value delivery rather than processes.

In many cases, however, this can be achieved only by revisiting the leadership culture inside the organization, particularly from the perspective of complexity thinking.

When we take this perspective, we realize that leadership is highly emergent and contextual, and that there is no "one size fits all" approach.

In this talk we'll see how self-organization and leadership are interconnected, and what people in a leading position can do (and can't do) to bring about change in complex environments.
