• [Online] You Need to Change - Start Here!

    Online event

    Abstract: Your team has hit a plateau in their performance and is no longer improving at the pace you are used to. You, as their leader, are racking your brain to determine what the issue might be. What would cause such a team to stall out? Have you considered that the cause might be you? The level of consciousness of an organization cannot exceed that of its leader. (Frederic Laloux). Enabling your team to reach ever-higher levels of performance requires that you do so first. In this workshop, we will guide leaders through the Immunity to Change framework developed by Robert Keagan and Lisa Lahey and demonstrate how the Immunity Map can be used to catalyze change in your leadership. Participants will practice using the Immunity Map to identify areas of improvement, limiting beliefs, assumptions and behaviors that are holding you and your team back from higher performance. You know that you need to change. Now’s the time. Start here! Learning Objectives: Describe technical and adaptive challenges List the components of an Immunity Map Use the Immunity Map template to walk yourself through an adaptive challenge that you’re facing Brock Argue takes a holistic approach to agility – recognizing that all aspects of the business benefit from the application of agile values and principles.

    What is a Community of Practice? A Community of Practice develops over time, by committed members engaging in many “informal conversations” about a shared domain of interest, creating a set of cases and stories that become a shared repertoire for their practice, whether they realize it or not. To learn a bit more about the concept of a "Community of Practice" check out this link. https://bit.ly/2YTyyZh What is the Agile Denver Kanban CoP? The Agile Denver Kanban CoP is a long-running meetup that started in June of 2011. We are a "Community of Practice, whose core members are practitioners that have regularly engaged with each other now over a number of years. Our meetups generally consist of us sharing our personal experiences and stories, and in the process learning from each other more about how to apply lean thinking, lean management (leadership), and agile principles, along with pull, flow, kanban, and system thinking concepts. Our specific focus is on how to catalyze and manage change, to improve business workflow processes, and to predictably forecast and answer the question “When will it be done?” We are associated with the broader Agile Denver (meetup) group, which has several other "special interest groups" (SIGs) associated with it, of which we are one. And we are also connected with the U.S. and global Lean Kanban community. Hi All, This is a general message to share with you some about the Agile Denver Kanban CoP dates, times, format, and general structure we follow for our meetups. Meetup Dates/Times: the Agile Denver Kanban CoP continues with their long time tradition of meeting on the 2nd Thursday of each month. However, we do not meet on the month when Agile Denver's Mile High Agile Conference occurs (usually April, but has been in May too) since many of us volunteer to help with the MHA Conference, and we seek to limit our personal WIP during that time. And we also take off the month of December, again since most of us are just way to busy that time of the year and we practice what we preach by again limiting our WIP :) Format/Structure: the format of our meetups generally follows leading off the 1st hour with Deep-dive on a topic selected and facilitated by one of our long time core members. After a short break, the 2nd hour follows a Lean Coffee format (Google "Lean Coffee" for more info). However, we will also at times vary this format and start with the Lean Coffee, or use the full two hours for an extended Deep-dive or "Game Night" or allow a core member to practice a presentation they are preparing for their place of work, etc. NOTE: Due to COVID-19, for now all of our Agile Denver Kanban CoP meetups are 1-hour "online" only events as per the schedule below. Agile Denver Kanban CoP Meetup Events Starting in 2020 we began utilizing two types of meetups events: 1) Public (Open-Mic) Meetups 2) Core Member Meetups Public (Open-Mic) Meetups - held quarterly on the months of: 1) Jan, 2) Apr, 3) Jul, and 4) Oct Core Member Meetups - held on the months of: 1) Feb, 2) Mar, 3) Jun, 4) Aug, 5) Sep, 6) Nov. These are limited in size to allow enable multi-way interactions and discussions between all Core Member in attendance. Please come back and check out this site often for updates, posted comments and questions, and announcements as our Agile Denver Kanban CoP meetup dates get closer each month. And check out our past meetups​ to see what's been happening with topics and comments.
