Event Details

Too many organizations think they can reap the benefits of business agility with a framework or tools. However, frameworks and tools don’t change the organizational culture. Instead of forcing managers into silos, what if we focused on creating collaborative management teams? We can change what we reward, support managers as they change their roles, and create business agility.

Learning outcomes

* Apply flow efficiency thinking to management and management teams.
* Discriminate between a culture of outputs with a culture that values learning and experimentation.
* Consider which policies and procedures prevent collaboration and fast experimentation.
* Discover management WIP.
* Measure the effect management decision time has on all the work in the organization.
