Henrik M has a presentation he wants to show us and we will discuss it. I will leave it to him to add more detail before if he wants it.

More detail:

Tempo!: The Reality Dysfunction
Henrik Mårtensson

Henrik Mårtensson

How did we end up with so many dysfunctional companies? To fix the problems we face today, we must understand the causes. Tempo!: The Reality Dysfunction is a romp through the wild side of management history: It starts with a bang, a train crash the 5th of October 1841, with consequences that cause companies to fail in 2013.

You will meet the unbeatable fighter pilot, who also figured out how to build an unbeatable organization. You will see what managers must know to lead an Agile development team. You will see how most companies are applying fundamental principles of strategy, psychology, and physics backwards, and hurt and disable themselves in the process. You will also find out what to do about it, and who has already succeeded.

There will be a practical demonstration, with members of the audience, showing how a simple restructuring of work can reduce lead times by 60 percent or more, while increasing quality. And, you will have fun!

Henrik Mårtensson is a business strategy coach, process developer, and project leader. He is also an author and presenter. Henrik began working with Extreme Programming, an agile software development method, in 2001. His interest in methodology quickly brought him to Lean, Theory Of Constraints, Statistical Process Control and Systems Thinking. Several years ago, Henrik got into contact with Strategic Navigation and a military strategic framework, Maneuver Conflict. Suddenly, all the pieces fit together.

Tempo!, Henrik's first book on business strategy, was published in 2010. His second book, LESS!, published in 2012, is a collaboration between twelve thought leaders in Agile, Lean, Beyond Budgeting, Strategic Navigation, Systems Thinking, and Complexity Science.

    I agree with the reply from Henrik below. There is a big difference between manufacturing and software development.
    In manufacturing it's possible and desired to eliminate variability, but this is not neccesarily the case when developing software. The aim is rather to manage variability, not eliminating it (this can actually be harmful since there will be variability and it's important to respond to this for economical reasons etc.). One good link here on this topic:

    A lot of valuable information and background to why organizations work/act like they do as well as what knowledge organizations can do to survive.

    I think Henrik M has misunderstood Heijunka...
    It means level loading, and suggests that if your goal is to produce five A:s, Five B:s and Five C:s you should not do it in an AAAAA, BBBBB, CCCCC order as Henrik suggested last monday. Rather, you should do it in an ABC, ABC, ABC order.

    Just wanted to bring some enlightenment to the group.

    I had to leave for a movie (GIFF!) and was sad to miss the end. Is it possible to get a copy of the presentation?

    I like the way of thinking and recognize my own line of thoughts, although your reasoing is a lot more definite than mine! But reality is always more complex than theory and I guess there are fairly good reasons why some companies are dysfuncitonal, but still no excuse!

    Interesting presentation, my cup of tea! Since the time is limited, it could be good to focus on some of the topics in the presentation.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
