Game Without Thrones: How to descale your organization
For the first time in Toronto, coming all the way from Australia, AgileTO is thrilled to host one of the most exciting and innovative Agile thought leaders today, Peter Merel, Chief Ecosystem Officer of XSCALE Alliance. Peter will lead an immersive hands-on de-scaling Lego workshop with no masters, no owners, no hierarchies, and no command and control. This is pure self-organization across multiple teams and streams driven directly by business constraints and quantitative metrics. = = = = = = = = = = = = = About XSCALE = = = = = = = = = = = = = XSCALE Alliance is the Linux of the agile world, an open learning ecosystem of prominent independent coaches and consultancies evolving an open-content alternative to the “Agile Industrial Complex”. This alternative takes the form of a principled pattern language, not a framework, for self-directing portfolios of self-managing streams of self-organizing teams - a “de-scaled” organization in which all feedback loops are tight, all meetings are small, and all decision-making is face-to-face. www.xscalealliance.org = = = = = = = = = = = = = Agenda = = = = = = = = = = = = = 6:00pm to 6:30pm – Networking 6:30pm to 8:00 pm – Game Without Thrones 8:00pm to 8:30pm – Debrief = = = = = = = = = = = = = Training in Toronto = = = = = = = = = = = = = Peter Merel will be offering in-person training in Toronto for the first time ever as part of his North American tour and would like to extend a special discount to the AgileTO community.
