The XSCALE Business Agility workshop
This two-day course teaches you how to accelerate top-line business throughput by generating self-directing portfolios of self-managing streams of self-organizing teams that pragmatically inter-operate with traditional PMOs and both distributed and hierarchical business cultures. You’ll learn how to continuously prioritise bottlenecks in value-flow, work-flow, and the flow of learning across your organization, how to optimise the contribution of each value stream to throughput rather than blindly minimising operating expense, and how to coordinate decentralised responsibility for business objectives with authority to solve them and metrics to optimise their solution.
You will gain deep understanding of change strategies that bootstrap self-propagating business-agile capability, and how to grow it by splitting and doubling to pull your organisation into agility rather pushing change onto existing teams and streams, so minimising risks of business disruption, low ROI, and compromised change outcome. You will learn how to cut through portfolio game-theoretics by representing cross-cutting chapters rather than streams, gamifying benefits-realisation, and rewarding participants proportionately to improved throughput to motivate focused collaboration on mutual benefit across teams and streams.
This learning will culminate in a “Game Without Thrones”, a hands-on simulation of an agile organisation with no command and control, no hierarchy, no managers, masters or owners.
But chapter meetings, governance treaties, prioritization councils, Leadership as a Service, and “the wit and wisdom of the Wildlings”.
You will develop an in-depth understanding of all the essential XSCALE principles of Agile Organization including exponential return by stacking growth curves, simple design to the elegance of minimum, continuous optimisation of business throughput, autonomous teams in self-managing streams, triple loop learning and ecosystems-thinking.
