Radical Management in Practice (cca 90 minutes)
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", a guidance is provided on what managers should do to best support the work of agile teams.
We will draw on experiences from Deutsche Telekom's large scale agile transition, which has involved a dramatic change in management culture.
The speaker, Simon Roberts, MBA is a management consultant and Certified Scrum Trainer (CST), based in Berlin, Germany.
