I have had some great success with Agile organization re-design, using....Legos. (Yes, the children's toy of little bricks of varying sizes and designs that plug together.) To share this "Lego tool" for organizational redesign, I have created a 59 minute Scrum exercise where each team, given a constraint of an existing organization (of a certain size of org, distribution of development teams, levels of management), and a goal is to create a new lighter-weight model of the org in 1 hour or less. What I'm wondering is there is interest in this: pending your interest we can schedule Jan or Feb. If we get at least 10 people interested we'll schedule it.
We will go from 6-8pm, with Q&A and cleanup from 8-8:15pm. We'll be presenting various company scenarios, company goals of forming cross-functional, multi-disciplined teams, and company impediments. Each table team will be able to use Lego's to model possible organizational go-forward plans.
