Newthinking’s Magazine Sprint

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).

Radical Management Workshop in Berlin with Stephen Denning

Making the Entire Organization Agile

Learn the Biggest Secret in Management Today

Radical Management

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

An ADAC air ambulance lands in a very tight spot in Lichtenrade, Berlin. The helicopter is only just visible in this spur of the moment shot.

As a casual observer, I’m often impressed by the daring of the ADAC helicopter crews.

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).

Christmas Eve in Berlin – Relay Cooking

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!
