Making the Entire Organization Agile:
An Executive Education Workshop
With Steve Denning and Peter Stevens
Learn the biggest Secret in Management Today
Just over a decade ago, a set of major management breakthroughs occurred. These breakthroughs enabled software development teams to achieve both disciplined execution and continuous innovation, something that was hitherto impossible to accomplish with traditional management methods.
Over the last decade, these management practices, under various labels such as Agile, Scrum, Kanban and Lean, have been field-tested and proven in thousands of organizations around the world. Radical Managementsm distills, builds on and extends these principles, practices and values so that the entire organization can now achieve to apply the magic combination of disciplined execution and continuous innovation.
Who can benefit from this workshop?
Offering a career-changing experience for anyone dissatisfied with rigidities of traditional management, this leadership workshop is for:
- Agile leaders and coaches wanting to convert the entire organization to Agile,
- business leaders needing to understand Agile management or achieve continuous innovation,
- public sector leaders seeking the agility to “do more for less”, and
- entrepreneurs wanting to grow their startups without losing agility.
- Day 1: Values and Principles - Why Radical Management is essential to your success
- Day 2: Best Practices for doing Radical Managmenet
- Day 3: Applying Radical Management in your Organization
This course is appropriate to anybody in a leadership role. Reading ‘The Leader’s Guide to Radical Management’ is optional. Familiarly with the values, principles and practices of Lean Thinking, Agile Software Development or Scrum is helpful but not essential.
The workshop is highly interactive. Each of the topics includes at least one exercise, case study or game, in which people put into practice the ideas of the course in groups of five or six people. The attendees provide their own cases. Every social activity ends with a debrief and a discussion, so that people can relate what they've learned to their own situation, and bring up questions and experiences to be addressed by the whole group.
