Company-Wide Agility with Beyond Budgeting, Open Space, and Sociocracy – John Buck

sociocracy: effective governance

Today companies are expected to be flexible and both rapidly responsive and resilient to change, which basically asks them to be Agile. Yet, doing Agile (the mechanics) is different from being Agile (the mindset). The mindset lets you apply flexible Agile patterns not only for software development teams but for the whole company. Yet implementing company-wide Agility isn’t straight forward, it asks for combining principles from the Agile Manifesto (inspecting & adapting), Sociocracy (creating equivalence), Beyond Budgeting (flexible budgeting & relative targets), and Open Space (passion bound by responsibility).

By showing what such a combination can look like, John will reveal a path toward company-wide Agility. He will show a new organigram to synthesize and focus board, inspiration, resources, and value center on the customer and use Cynefin to implement company-wide Agility.
