It has become all the rage to utilize scaling frameworks to introduce agile in a synchronized and replicable fashion in the enterprise. Having been an enterprise coach for years, I understand the need for such a systemic approach. Oftentimes, what gets lost in these transformations is the humanistic perspective. We get so focused on the framework, that we forget the people.
Join me and fellow participants in a discussion of five key actions that help to humanize transformations: defining the mission together; identifying the value stream; team self-selection; team bootstrap; and keeping the spirit alive post-transformation. This is not another framework, these are deceptively simple steps anyone can take to put people first in their transformation.
Who will benefit from the session?
-Those considering using a scaling framework and lack direct experience
-Those in the middle of a transformation but feel stifled by the structure and lack of innovation
-Those who are nearing the end of their transformation and wonder how to sustain the new culture

Learning Outcomes:
  • Five practical steps for organic scaling that harnesses individuals motivations into meaningful impact:
  • Step 1. Collaborative mission-building: an approach for identifying and articulating the desired business outcome as an invested team
  • Step 2. Value-stream mapping: using a well-known model that identifies the work needed to deliver a product or service
  • Step 3. Team self-selection: a method that empowers teams to self-select their teams based on the value stream identified
  • Step 4. Team bootstrap: a checklist of actions critical to starting a team on the right foot
  • Step 5. Keeping the spirit alive: a discussion about what to expect 3, 6 and 18 months after the initial transformation
