The Edge of Chaos – A place for initiative and connection
When you let go of 'command & control', and leave the initiative more to your professionals, what prevents you from to end up in 'Chaos'?
In Chaos there is enough activity, but no patterns and meaning at organizational level. Somewhere between Full Structure and Chaos is something you could call 'The Edge of Chaos'.
In Agile organizations it is often looking for the balance - how much letting go can you handle, without everyone 'just' doing something? The Edge of Chaos is a 'place' where there is freedom for initiative and new connections, where patterns of meaning arise, the dissolving again in something new.
The intention of this meetup is to investigate with Agile professionals in response to a pitch of this. What is for an Agile organization 'the edge of Chaos'? What does that look like in practice?
With your active participation, I hope we together can learn more about The Edge of Chaos in Agile organisations.
This Agile meetup will be hosted by Lars Liebrand and Wessel Hofman of Scrumit. The location will be a rugbyclub, because this meetup will be a combination between an open space and some emperical learning about Agile through rugby gamifications on an actual rugby pitch. So bring your sports gears (yes really!) So we can have fun, experience together and learn from that. We will use one of the gamifications that we also use in our Scrum/ Agile trainings for our customers. If you would like more info about what you can expect then check the video on www.scrumit.nl. If there are any questions let us know.

Once upon a time on Friday 21st of September 2018 we will meet each other at the 13th Agile Open Holland event in Lunteren with a hope to have a rich and satisfying day.
Agile Open Holland is a recurrent Open Space event which means that you are a participant and you are also a speaker, and once you’ve bought the tickets you can’t avoid your serving of creative ideas, hands-on workshops, fruitful discussions and amazing new people.
On Friday we start at 09:00 and continue till 17:00, followed by drinks for everybody till 18:00. When you choose to include a fine diner, we keep you busy till 20:30.
On Thursday night we start with dinner at 18:00 en start gaming as soon as everybody is ready. The night lasts till late, especially for those who stay.
Worst of all this year event has a specific topic. Guess what? It’s all about centaurs! Or sphinxes. Or griffins. Close your eyes (wait, then you can’t read this text, okay, keep your eyes open) and imagine a harmonious mixture of IT and business – that’s what all our event is about. Mysterious, eh?
If you are already curious – buy your ticket and share with friends using tags #agileopen #holland #aoh2018
If you want to sponsor the event – buy your ticket and be ready to send two representatives.
Book a spot in your calendar and see you soon!

18.45 Present white paper to Mariëtte Pasman and share main thoughts and conclusions by authors Marlous Mooij and Mariëlle Roozemond
19.30 Break with coffee/tea

20.00 Arie van Bennekum, agile values and principles applied outside IT
20.30 Closing remarks
Five years ago, Betteke van Ruler launched her book Reflective Communication Scrum, which unleashed a bunch of energy to approach our work differently in communication. Today quite a few communication professionals work in an agile way completing projects and going concern tasks. Time to take stock. What works and what doesn’t when applying agile to communication? Some pressing questions in this regard are bundled in a white paper, reflecting the opinion of professionals working with agile in this field from the beginning.
In this event, the white paper is launched by Mariëtte Pasman (communication RIVM & board member Logeion) and the main findings in it are shared by Marlous Mooij (Independent project manager) and Mariëlle Roozemond (Agile marcom coach & lecturer).
The host organization of our evening will give a heads up on how the communication team applies agile in their work processes. Once we have full confirmation, more details on this talk will follow.
We are happy to close the evening with a talk of one of the co-authors of the Agile Manifesto; Arie van Bennekum (thought leader Wemanity). He always claimed that the manifesto was written for those wanting to uncover better ways to do any kind of complex project work, including non-IT. Seeing the rise of Agile in different domains has strengthened this conviction. He points to principles and practices that any creative worker can use in today’s fast paced workplace.

[masked] Background Sociocracy
[masked] Consent game
Sociocracy offers principles and techniques for decision making that help making organizations more agile at all levels, from the shop floor up to the board. With the sociocratic circle organization method you can successfully solve the tension between (seemingly) conflicting concepts like top down leadership and local self-organization, hierarchy and autonomy, speed and alignment. You can add a sociocratic decision making structure to any (project) organization. Including agile teams, tribes etc. And start using it right where you are.
Sociocracy has been used for over forty years in all types of organizations, large and small, profit and not-for-profit, in The Netherlands and abroad. The Sociocratisch Centrum, part of the Sociocracy Group, has developed this method.
In this meetup you will gain a better understanding of the basic principles underlying this method and gain practical experience by participating in a sociocratic decision making structure.
For everyone who has to take (difficult) decisions together with others sometimes and especially agile teams and coaches and those who like building agile organizations.
Your hosts will be experienced sociocratic experts that trained teams and organizations in applying sociocracy for over 20 years. They are:
Pieter van der Meché, working at Sociocratisch Centrum and implementing sociocracy in organizations in The Netherlands and abroad for more than 20 years. Geert van der Sman, agile coach and facilitator, using sociocracy for 6 years, working for SDB professionals and Rob van der Eyden, experienced sociocracy trainer, facilitator and project Manager at Sociocratisch Centrum.
Sociocratie, of voluit de sociocratische kringorganisatiemethode (SKM ), biedt de besluitvormingsprincipes en -technieken voor een Agile organisatie, van werkvloer tot raad van commissarissen. Met de SKM los je de (schijnbare) tegenstelling tussen leidinggeven en zelfsturing, hiërarchie en zelforganisatie èn tussen snelheid en draagvlak, succesvol op. Je kunt een sociocratische besluitvormingsstructuur toevoegen aan elke (project)organisatie. Ook agile teams, tribes etc. En beginnen daar waar je nu staat.
Sociocratie wordt al meer dan veertig jaar toegepast in grote en kleine organisaties, in binnen- en buitenland. Het Sociocratisch Centrum, onderdeel van The Sociocracy Group, heeft deze methode ontwikkeld.
Tijdens de meet up leer je de basis en de achtergronden van de methode beter kennen en ga je met een aantal sociocratische besluitvormingstechnieken aan de slag.
Te gebruiken voor iedereen die wel eens samen met anderen (moeilijke) besluiten moet nemen en speciaal for Agile teams and coaches en degenen die organisaties meer agile willen maken.
De begeleiders van deze workshop zijn ervaren sociocratische deskundigen met meer dan 20 jaar ervaringen in het begeleiden van teams en organisaties bij het implementeren van de SKM.
