Business Agility with Okaloa Flowlab
09:00 - 23:59
Business agility is more than scaling agile (development) practices. It is more than the sum of different organizational units that each implement their own chosen agile method on their own little island, constrained by a traditional management system. Nor is it a top-down imposed one-size-fits-all big agile model that fits everybody and nobody. It is a different way of thinking about agility. BUSINESS AGILITY REQUIRES - New ways of teaching and coaching agility that engages and mobilizes all levels of the organization (including decision makers) across all functions (not just IT or software development). - A different way of thinking about change where agility spreads virally through the (informal) network. - Agile thinking at scale to develop unique capabilities to thrive in an ever-changing and highly competitive business landscape: ENTERPRISE FLOW that balances supply with demand from team to portfolio level NETWORKED COLLABORATION where highly engaged teams work, decide and learn together in a network ORGANISATIONAL LEARNING where experience and experiment complement each other DAY 1 – CORE AGILE CAPABILITIES Explore flow, collaboration and learning as core agile capabilities as opposed to methods and practices that do not scale Learn how to use simulation as a way of teaching and coaching the core agile capabilities in a way that inspires action not just talk Experience how to teach agility at all levels and across all functions (not just IT) in the organization DAY 2 – SCALED AGILE THINKING Learn about enterprise flow, networked collaboration and organizational learning as the core capabilities for business agility Use simulation to explore scaling problems including cross-team dependencies and balancing demand with supply in end-to-end flow Explore the use of Customer Kanban to manage capacity downstream, and triage and order points to shape demand upstream.
