Simon Roberts’ session proposal for the Agile Business Conference in London (6-7 October 2015) has been accepted by the organisers. The title of the session is “Radical Management in Practice: A Holistic Approach to Management in Agile Enterprises” and will combine presentation, discussion and short exercises. Steve Denning, inventor of Radical Management and who is due to provide the opening keynote for the conference has graciously agreed to co-lead the workshop and add his insights 🙂
Here is a video of Simon Roberts’ talk “Designing High-Performance into our Organisations: What can ScrumMasters, managers and other leaders do to help every team to excel?” from Optional Conference 2015, Budapest, Hungary.
On 15 April 2015, Peter Stevens and Simon Roberts were honoured to take part in a webinar on Radical Management as part of Scrum Alliance’s program of webinars supporting the Learning Consortium.
The webinar covered:
- Radical Management and its five main shifts
- Transforming organization strategy from shareholder value to something more sustainable (including customer delight)
- Experiences in applying Radical Management in large organizations
- Key steps for introducing Radical Management, including engaging with top management, getting early buy-in, training, and coaching
Download the slides from the webinar here.
The webinar is also available as a recording.
After the webinar, the presenters answered many of the questions that we didn’t have time to answer during the presentation itself. The questions and answers are available here.
Thank you for the overwhelmingly positive feedback after the event (including tweets).
Many organizations are based on a hierarchical bureaucracy with managers who practice command and control. This approach is incompatible with much twenty-first century work, which is knowledge based and best carried out in self-organized teams.
Building on Steve Denning’s “Radical Management”, this presentation provides guidance on what managers should do to best support the work of agile teams.
This draws on experiences from multiple large-scale Agile transitions in Germany and the United Kingdom in the telecommunications and finance sectors.
In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun. You find the fun and snap! The job’s a game.
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).
Bowie’s comeback album is a tour de force. Highly recommended.
In association with codecentric GmbH, Simon Roberts will be teaching a Certified Scrum Product Owner course (in German) on 2./3.09.2009 in Solingen. This will be presented directly before codecentric’s “Meet the Experts: Agilität” event on 4.09.2009 and provides an ideal opportunity to learn more about Scrum’s Product Owner role. Why not attend both events – CSPO and Meet the Experts – Agilität and make the most of your trip to Solingen?
For more information and to register, please visit the meet the experts site.
Simon Roberts will be speaking at codecentric’s event “Meet the Experts – Agilität” in Sollingen on 04.09.2009. The innovative “Meet the Experts” series combines talks from invited speakers with an Open Space session.
Simon’s talk will be on the topic of “Making Scrum Stick” where he will reflect on some of the factors that are critical in helping transitions to agile methods, particularly in large, traditional organizations, to be sustainable.
Other speakers include Henning Wolf (it-agile GmbH), Andreas Ebbert-Karroum (codecentric GmbH), Boris Gloger and Dietmar Strasser (Borland). We hope that you will be able to join us in Solingen for what promises to be a very interesting day.
