What do we mean by an Agile Transformation?
What do we mean by an Agile or Scrum Transformation? Is there a such thing? Join us for an opening speech about Toyota's Journey with Agility, and to explore the challenges they see as well as hear from you about your own journeys. Let's use this forum to Yokoten (share) knowledge and patterns. There are many flavors and options being coached in our companies, but what works, what is not working, and what do we actually seek to achieve? Great Scrum or an agile organization? This first sessions will be opened by Nigel, but this is meant to be a forum for executives to share and learn, and not a traditional meet up format. Let's learn from each other, and share the journey together, and improve the landscape of agility, and the application of the tools and frameworks we are using. Speaker's Bio Nigel Thurlow is a Lean Evangelist, Continuous Improvement Leader, Quality Advocate, Agile & Scrum Coach, and a member of The Machine That Changed the World. Considered by many as an expert in Lean implementation and process improvement, gained from his Toyota background, he evangelizes quality improvement and waste reduction through the implementation of systems thinking, agile practices, and the Scrum framework. In 2017 following 2 1/2 years training and certifying over 2000 people as a Certifying Scrum Trainer at Scrum Inc with the co-creator of Scrum, Nigel has moved back to his roots and re-joined Toyota as the Chief of Agile with Toyota Connected, the Toyota company building the future of connected vehicle technologies. Nigel is now leveraging the power of TPS and The Toyota Way to enhance and develop Agility in Lean.

What we're about

TEKN is designed to be different than a traditional meet up.

TEKN is a uniquely designed group for CXOs, Executives, VPs, and Business Leaders who are leading or participating in organizational change initiatives to achieve agility. Maybe you are using approaches such as Scrum or other frameworks to become agile, and you want to learn from others going through the same challenges and experiences. Toyota is on that journey with you. Come share and learn together in this unique executive leadership group.

This is a group sponsored by Toyota to share our knowledge with others (Yokoten) and to learn from others about their experiences. It is NOT just for Toyota, it is for others to meet with Toyota.

TEKN will enable business leaders to learn from each other’s experiences in a peer-to-peer setting through informal discussion and interactive workshops. Toyota’s own Agile and Scrum coaches and lean experts will be around to share ideas and working patterns we are observing, but most of all we want to learn, experiment, and share with the executive community.

TEKN is invitation only for executives in an establish enterprise. TEKN is for complex problem solving and systems thinking, for Kaizen (continuous improvement) and for Yokoten (sharing knowledge).

Who should join: CXOs, Senior Executives, Vice Presidents and Business Leaders

Why members should join: To Learn how to Lead and Nurture Change, Executive Coaching, Professional Networking, Sharing and FUN.

What members can expect: Informal Discussion, Support from Toyota’s own Experts, Interactive Workshops, Roundtable Discussion, Innovation Games, Food & Wine etc.
