Several members of the Stoos Satellite Berlin took part in Newthinking’s magazine Sprint from 4th-6th April. We wrote several articles on Stoos and related subjects. Some at least will hopefully be accepted into the final magazine (it will be a real coffee-table style magazine).
Birgit and I held a workshop at Agile Development Practices in Potsdam. Here is our presentation:
Making the Entire Organization Agile
Learn the Biggest Secret in Management Today
I am delighted to announce a very special event in Berlin.
On July 9th-11th, Stephen Denning will be leading this workshop drawing on his award-winning book, “The Leader’s Guide to Radical Management”, his path-breaking work in leadership storytelling and long managerial background as a director at the World Bank. Simon Roberts, ScrumCenter CEO and Certified Scrum Trainer, will be co-teaching.
Just over a decade ago, a set of major management breakthroughs occurred. These breakthroughs enabled software development teams to achieve both disciplined execution and continuous innovation, something that was hitherto impossible to accomplish with traditional management methods.
Over the last decade, these management practices, under various labels such as Agile, Scrum, Kanban and Lean, have been field-tested and proven in thousands of organizations around the world. Radical Management? distills, builds on and extends these principles, practices and values so that the entire organization can now achieve to apply the magic combination of disciplined execution and continuous innovation.
Who Should Attend
- Agile leaders and coaches wanting to convert the entire organization to Agile
- Business leaders needing to understand Agile management or achieve continuous innovation
- Entrepreneurs wanting to grow their startups without losing agility

I went to the Genesis concert on 03/07 in Berlin at the Olympic Stadium. The band were in fine form and played a great mixture of classic and 80’s songs. Photos here.
Seen at a skateboard park in Lichtenrade Berlin. Unfortunately, the John-Locke Boyz in question are not necessarily fans of John Locke, the 17th century English philosopher but are residents of John-Locke Strasse (which is named after the philosopher).
We’ve been doing lots of cooking and baking today. I started by making the stuffing and cranberry sauce for tomorrow’s turkey, both based on recipes from Gary Rhodes. When I was finished, I passed the baton to Birgit and Liam who baked Bratapfelkuchen.
In between we’ve been decorating the Christmas tree and listening to Jethro Tull’s “The Christmas Album”.
The Christmas spirit is rising! Merry Christmas!
buntklicker.de: “Die Berliner sind mal wieder von der schnellen Truppe: Berlin ist das erste Bundesland, in dem ab heute der Ladenschluß an Werktagen vollständig aufgehoben ist.”
Great to see Berlin leading on opening up the archaic German shop opening laws. Hopefully the next step will be movement on Sunday opening.
