Lo que hacemos

Welcome to the Digital Leadership meetup.

Please also visit our website at : https://www.lead-digital.org/

Digital is at the core of the change and disruption that we are seeing in the marketplace and many enterprises at the moment. Whilst most groups are focusing on Agile adoption or the multi-variations of doing Scrum, we chose to widen our perspective and look at what is next. What leadership is required to manage the digital transition that businesses need?

Our perspective goes further than method application, we look at Strategy, Operations, Organisation Design and People/Leadership development. Those, we believe, are the essential components of successful digital leadership. Technology features as well but from a purposeful perspective of supporting the strategy or improving the operations.

Our meetup has been enjoyed by many participants over a year and the group has grown from strength to strength. The feedback from our visitors has consistently mentioned that we brought something different. People come to our meetup to anticipate and prepare themselves to what is next in the industry.

We are an inclusive group that values participation and involvement. We also have a Slack channel.

Audiences: The meet-up is addressing the management level of organisations looking to understand and develop their capabilities to support the digital evolution. It is also opened to all knowledge workers who want to take initiative and leadership in digital. Practitioners are also welcome to come, learn and contribute.

We are looking to expand the Organising team, and looking for sponsors, so please get in touch if you would like to get involved and/or have suggestions for speakers.

Code of Conduct

"Come and See, Ask Questions, Respect People"

We are slightly paraphrasing Mr Fujio Cho (Chairman of Toyota) in his description of Lean Leadership and Gemba. This sums up the essence of how a digital leader should think and behave.

All attendees, speakers, sponsors and volunteers at our Digital Leadership meet-up are asked to agree and adopt this code of conduct. Our meet-up is aiming to drive us to be better with Digital Change. One of the foundations to achieve this is “being” the values rather than just “doing” a method. Respect for people is a fundamental value of leadership and it is therefore essential that we make this central to the value charter of this group.

Organisers will ensure that this code is lived by all during the events and off-line in-between events, so to make it an enjoyable experience for all. Lack of Respect is not promoting a collaborative and learning culture, and this would have no place in this meet-up. The basis of a learning culture is to explore the diversity of opinions and experiences. Diversity has to be embraced and any form of discrimination would be failing the core values and essence of this group.

Our meetup is, therefore, a place of harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), or technology choices. We do not tolerate harassment of meetup participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery are not appropriate for any meetup venue, including talks, workshops, parties, twitter and other online media, during the meet-up or outside of it. Meetup participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the meetup without a refund at the discretion of the meetup organisers.

If anybody felt hurt or offended in any way as a result of presentations, participation or subscription to our group, we invite you to come forward to the organisers, by talking to us directly or dropping us a note from the Group page. If you know of somebody that felt hurt but is worried to come forward, it is also your duty to report it. All such matters would be taken seriously and handled accordingly. The meetup organisers will be happy to help participants contact appropriate venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the meet-up. We value your attendance.

We expect participants to follow these rules at all meetup venues and meetup-related social events.

Agile Lean Coffee #8: Remote & Distributed Teams with Judy Rees (Online & Free)

This is the eighth in a series of Agile Lean Coffees run by Aginext and the Digital Leadership Meetup. These are free, monthly, virtual ways to talk about certain topics and safely discuss your experiences. Who better to help us with our virtual lean coffees than remote maven Judy Rees?! Judy (https://www.linkedin.com/in/judyrees/) will be joining us as a special guest coffee drinker to talk on this Guy Fawkes day about what betrays many teams — remote and hybrid meetings. We will be self-organising around topics including the power of flexible work, how agile and lean rituals translate to the remote working world, how to improve remote/distributed meetings and other communication, how to build trust when you're not face-to-face every day, and anything else you want to talk about! Lean Coffee is a facilitated, but agenda-less meeting. Our participants gather, build an agenda of conversation-starting questions — and start discussing. Conversations are directed and productive because the agenda for the meeting was democratically selected. We do ten-minute topic timeboxes, and then vote thumbs up or down if we want to continue for another five minutes. **We will close signups and send out the Zoom link to all signups about an hour before the event. And we will also send out the link to start brainstorming and adding your topics so we can get quickly into voting and discussing. Please consider adding your topics before. Thank you to the tool Lean Coffee Table for allowing us free use: https://leancoffeetable.com This is part of a series of activities that Aginext.io is sponsoring as we look to bridge the gaps between our conferences and to build a proper accelerated agile community. Anyone who joins our lean coffees can also be invited to our exclusive agile-minded Slack community. Our flagship conference Aginext is on Thur 19- Fri 20 March 2020, and the call for speakers is open! Aginext is a two-day conference dedicated to all things advanced agile and beyond including culture at scale, agile at scale, agile leadership and just what's next! https://2020.aginext.io/speak-at-aginext/

Diversity for digital – Become the ambassador of making a difference

** please register with SkillsMatter to access the premises - you will need a code to get in - https://skillsmatter.com/meetups/12998-diversity-for-digital-become-the-ambassador-of-making-a-difference ** So far, Digital has very much been about delivering software technology in support of the business. The computer educated and literates have populated IT departments and benefited from the rise of the digital economy. Though most of them would probably not realise it, they have enjoyed a privileged position for the past two decades. This is the nature of a privilege, it is hard to appreciate. In the meantime, other demographics have not had the same luck and many found themselves on the outside of this booming industry for being the wrong gender, ethnic, or lifestyle. They have been the "prejudiced" of the early digital age. As enterprises are looking to be more inclusive, we are now seeing diversity targets for gender and/or ethnicity. Is this the right way of addressing this challenge? As competition is intensifying, it is not just about delivering digital software anymore, but about innovating with it. Innovation stems from diverse thinking, as well as backgrounds and groundings. Diversity will be the fuel of innovation in the next era of digital. Assembling a team will be alchemy for innovation to prosper. Does this mean that the once privileged will become prejudiced and vice-versa? Most HR departments are establishing ratios and targets for diversity. Though the intention has to be saluted, this approach also results in unintended consequences. Is it the right approach or a necessary one? Is real diversity on another level altogether that we will aim to explore that evening? Diversity is a complex topic and we will not aim to solve it in an evening, but look to create more awareness, and from this establish if diversity can be approached in a better way by enterprises and all of us in our daily work. We will use large scale systemic facilitation techniques to get all the voices heard and provide an experiential approach to this very worthy topic. We are also planning to have a few guest speakers talking about their challenges with a view to raise better awareness and stimulate the discussion. Please join in numbers as it will be one of the most interesting session all year.
