Orchestrating Collaboration at Different Levels of Scale
Orchestrating Collaboration at Different Levels of Scale

Orchestrating the work of hundreds or thousands of people working at different locations around the world presents a set of challenges specific to that kind of context. It is not simply a matter of “scaling up", we need to understand underlying principles and patterns and make them work. With this session we invite you into a conversation about how to improve the way leaders and teams collaborate in our organizations. You will experience a workshop that you can reproduce for your organisation to create supporting structures that scale

Target Audience: Thinkers, Decision Makers, Architects, Managers, Coaches, Scrum Masters, Product Owners
Prerequisites: Curiosity and some experience in working in large organisations
Level: Advanced

Extended Abstract
Orchestrating the work of hundreds or thousands of people working at different locations around the world presents a set of challenges specific to that kind of context. It is not simply a matter of “scaling up” what works for orchestrating the work of a small number of co-located people, or even a small number of distributed teams. The specific practices necessary for success will vary and evolve. Variety of practice is essential to creating successful outcomes.
There is a useful set of underlying principles and patterns that we bring to our work. They enable us to create a wide variety of context-aware practices that serve the needs of the people in our organizations, and support them in collaborating to create value for our customers.
With this session we invite you into a conversation about how to improve the way leaders and teams collaborate in our organizations. We will look at teams’ needs regarding autonomy, leadership, and support, and at leaders’ needs regarding strategy, challenges, and responsibility. One specific theme we explore in this session is that of the relationships between leaders and teams, and how we leverage those relationships to orchestrate work and outcomes.
Through this session you will experience a workshop that you can reproduce for your organisation. We will share our setup guides, tools, and materials with you so that you can create supporting structures to more effectively orchestrate collaboration at different scales in your organization.

From Practice to Patterns: How to Successfully Drive an Agile Transformation
From Practice to Patterns: How to Successfully Drive an Agile Transformation

What have we learnt from the transformations in large companies? And how can that help you improving your chances for success?

The DACH30 group is a workgroup of experienced transformation drivers and coaches from over 30 large companies across different industries. One sub-workgroup has been working on these two questions and we recently published our findings.

In this workshop we will share our transformation experiences and work out with you on patterns, that have proven to be helpful in driving agile transformations successfully.

Target Audience:
Leaders especially on executive level and organizational development coaches
Prerequisites: Experiences in driving an agile transformation in a large organization
Level: Advanced

Extended Abstract

As internal Agile Transformation Coaches from large enterprises we have been supporting quite a number of transformations in various contexts. And as members of a workgroup for Business Agility we were asking ourselves „What can we learn from the different company transformations in the different markets and branches with different cultures? Is there anything they have in common?“ We were quite thrilled to identify some principles and helpful insights and learnings based on success and failures which we found applicable to most of the transformations.

To provide inspiration for others, executives and leaders especially, we summarized these principles and learnings in a Transformation Travel Guide for Growing Adaptive Organizations, including a Travel Map, Travel Tips and also some exemplary Travel Routes based on real-life case studies.

In this session we will provide an overview on the Travel Guide and some deeper insights into learnings from two Transformation Journeys. Study.

Our focus is not on scaling Agile working but rather on achieving Agility on an enterprise level. Hence we are not only looking towards Agile but rather at various methods, thinking models, and techniques in order to find the right approach for specific business problems to solve and for developing organizational towards more adaptivity and resilience.

We are a smaller group from the DACH30 Initiative working on ‚Growing Adaptive Organizations’. growing-adaptive-organizations.org

D.A.R.E. more, F.E.A.R. less – Put your Leadership in ACTion With Pen & Paper
D.A.R.E. more, F.E.A.R. less – Put your Leadership in ACTion With Pen & Paper

Are you wondering: How is a diary connected with leadership? How can YOU and OTHERS benefit from written reflection?
In this session you will get answers! You will benefit from my extensive (business) journaling experience. You will be introduced to psychological science that makes written self-reflection so powerful.

  • You want to change habits in your life's "departments"?
  • You want to harvest outstanding outcomes - at work and beyond?
  • You want to spark change - in yourself and others?

Then join and get your leadership in ACTion!

Target Audience: All curious human beings (including Developers, Architects, Managers, Project Leads)
Prerequisites: Openness for new ways of thinking (and behaviour) is helpful
Level: Advanced

Extended Abstract
During my career in IT and people development I had several turning points where I either was made to use journaling techniques or experimented with them myself to successfully tackle the next challenge.

Over the years some turning points "beyond business" in life followed. Also I got serious scientific foundations in my psychological studies. Having both – the science and my experience – I started reflecting, why those 'written self-reflection' techniques are so powerful and – at the same time – they are still quite rarely used in the business context.

This session is suitable for all humans: curious newcomers as well as seasoned written-self-reflection experts as I'll share some stories, more than 10 years of experience and actionable tools and techniques.
