Change

We sometimes hear that there is an agile transformation in progress and that we transform company culture. We do not believe in that. We believe that we create the conditions for change. This track is about practices which foster learning and cultivate initiative.

Situation Normal, Everything Must Change
Summary

We live in a competitive world. That competition forces change. It has always forced change. Change is normal. The question is not whether our organizations will change, that’s a given, but can we ride the ebb and flow of change or are we simply rudderless boats being battered by wave after wave?

To answer the question we need to understand our landscape, the economic forces at play, the context we operate within, how evolution flows through our context and our situational awareness of this.  During this talk we will examine these issues across Government and the private sector.

Maturity Mapping or how to tailor capability adoption to your existing culture

Access event

Summary

Organisations are incentivised to adopt maturity models (sometimes also disguised as frameworks) when seeking to improve on their capabilities. A major reason for their popularity is that they provide a context-free assessment of people’s abilities, which empowers people in authority to make judgments about other people’s capabilities without a need to acquire such capabilities themselves or taking their context into account. Maturity Models also tempt the executive because they describe a target culture as an idealised future state.  

Maturity models can be successfully adopted if the practitioners have insight into how the model can be contextualised for the current environment, how it fits into the current culture and that ability of contextualising is more critical to the adoption than depth of expertise in the model.

This talk introduces Maturity Mapping, a practice of applying Social Practice Theory (SPT) using Wardley Mapping in order to guide organisational transitions by enabling contextualisation for the adoption of capabilities. It is not only an antidote to maturity models, but shifts the focus of improvement away from who we are (investigation of individuals’ inner lives) to what we do (investigation of socio-technical interactions of collectives). Maturity Mapping allows us to visualise what we need to do and learn to execute a strategy, as well as informing what strategy options exist in our current context.

While Maturity Mapping is philosophically motivated and theory lead, the talk will explain the practice by showing examples of where it has enabled better outcomes.

Intent based leadership

Summary

Shift from a culture of permission to one of intent. Our old idea of good leadership is where the leader knows all, tells all and is always in control. In fact, it’s difficult for us to change because those old habits are so hardwired in our brains! Intent-Based Leadership™ offers a way for us to rewire: to give control, trust and learn to be okay with not having all the answers. It's a way of leading where the leader sets the environment for others to excel and act to the maximum extent of their creativity and intellect; where team members come to the leader describing what they see, what they think, and what they intend to do. The result: the culture of the organization shifts from one of permission and waiting, to intent and action, and people feel more valued and come to better solutions. Jenni will share the principles of Intent-Based Leadership™ – what it takes to give control and achieve excellence in your organization.

L'apprentissage en entreprise, ou comment créer les conditions optimales pour une organisation apprenante

Summary

La seule chose dont nous sommes maintenant tous convaincus, c’est que nul ne sait à quoi ressemblera notre travail dans 6 mois ou même demain.

Dans ces conditions, comment notre organisation du travail pourrait-elle nous permettre de satisfaire les processus naturels d’apprentissage tels que définis par le docteur Maria Montessori à l’origine de la pédagogie du même nom ?

En 1h je propose de vous présenter ma compréhension de son enseignement (les tendances humaines au service de l’apprentissage continu en entreprise), et quelques exemples de mise en pratique dans le cadre de transformations agiles.

Nous pourrions même réfléchir ensemble à des mises en application qui sait ?

Foster learning by provoking personal changes (REX)

Access event

Summary

Transformations come from individuals who deeply believe in change, in experiences and learning to evolve, to reach another level. In order to foster a culture of transformation at the corporate level, we must rely on these individuals, on the diversity of thoughts, the diversity of visions.

This talk is about creating the conditions for change... not at a corporate level, but at a personal level. How going outside our comfort zone can change the way we think, the way we see our environment, the way we act.
Using personal examples, we will draw the lines between trying diversity in our lives and the results we can achieve.

SPEAKERS

Marc Burgauer

Marc has experienced professional life as a biologist, an award-winning performance artist and musician, as a business analyst, enterprise database architect and early web applications programmer, startup founder, company board member, and in various management functions.

An early interest in Complexity and management theories meant XP found an open door, when a friend shared the first articulation on extremeprogramming.org in 2000. Motivated by successful application of Agile and adjacent concepts over the next 15 years in two tech startups and, first covertly, in a large scale digital transformation in a Scottish public service, he made the move into coaching. After learning about organisational barriers in two of the UK’s major banks, he is currently helping a civil service to become a learning organisation.

Mija Rabemananjara

Mija Rabemananjara diplomee ingénieur Arts et métiers en 1999, coach certifiée en 2007, se met à l’agilité en 2012 dans le cadre d'un projet pour le moins incertain après avoir constaté les difficultés liées au déploiement de processus et a la gestion du changement.

Les personnes aiment décider de leurs activités et de comment elles veulent les faire. Ça tombe bien elles sont quand même bien placée pour le faire puisqu'elles ont l'expertise pour cela. Qu'est ce qui leur manquerait ? Un environnement qui favorise la collaboration et l'apprentissage ainsi qu'une vision et la capacité a auto évaluer leur contribution.

A partir de 2012 Mija approfondit ses savoirs en se certifiant green belt six sigma, intègre un cabinet de conseil spécialisé dans l'agilité puis en avril 2018 elle décide de se mettre à son compte et crée la société les Agilopathes afin de développer deux offres principales :

- un cursus de formation certifiant « Devenir coach agile agilopathe ». Son objectif, développer un label pour les coachs agiles qui soit agnostique de tout Framework et qui permettent de certifier un état d'esprit et des savoir-faire fondamentaux plus qu'un set de pratiques préétablies.

- une grille de lecture pour accompagner les gestionnaires dans leur changement de posture vers un management bienveillant, soutenant, agile pour un environnement propice à l'épanouissement des membres de l'organisation.

Son ambition est d'accompagner les organisations vers plus d'empathie, de respect de l'humain, d'autogestion et donc plus de performance. Sur son site http://lesagilopathes.com vous retrouverez des vidéos de ses conférences précédentes et la description de ses offres.

Venez découvrir l'agilopathie : la médecine douce des organisations pour des salariés et des clients heureux.
