From Chaos to order with Self-Organization
According to one of the principles in the Agile Manifesto, the best products come from self-organizing teams. Standard Scrum, as one of the most known agile ways, is meant for just one team. The past decade several frameworks for scaling agile to many teams have become popular. But what has become of the idea of self-organizing teams? And what if the complete organization becomes more agile? Isn’t a complete self-organizing organization the next step in agility? In this talk we are going to investigate which ways there are to self-organize without leading to chaos, but instead bring order. There will be a sneak preview of a coherent set of methods for self-organization based on e.g. sociocracy and OKRs. The speaker for this part is Tom Heisterkamp, Agile Coach, Trainer and Speaker @ www.vagile.nl. Tom is self-employed and works for Air France-KLM right now. His mission is to make the world a better place by applying agile and self-organizing ways of working. In the second part we make things practical. We start with a brief introduction of concepts that play a roll in self organization: Organization Learning (Senge) and Business Agility (Steyaert). Then we move into a dialogue to identify what possible next steps (if any) you need to take in your own organization, to create effective self-organizing teams. The facilitator for this part is Arno Korpershoek, agile and complexity coach, @Co-chi. The speaker for this part is Arno Korpershoek, agile and complexity coach, @Co-chi. I am self-employed. My personal purpose is to create a (emotional) safe world where trust giving decisions are good for everyone. At this moment I focus on business agility where strategy is supported by a sensing capability realizing resiliency as well as calm alertness.
