Agile Business Conference 2017 - People and Culture
Agile Business Conference
The People and Culture stream covers and discusses a range of topics, practices and examples to help individuals, teams and organisations to re-energise and enthuse others. In turn, this may influence behavioural change and create an organisation where collaboration - and the benefits of collaboration - are recognised, encouraged and developed to become the norm.
Global Trends Impact on retail Supply Chains - Patrick Dixon
Creating Systems Inspired Leaders and Teams - Anne Rod & Nairy McMahon
With the advancement of technologies, our lives are becoming faster than ever. As leaders, we are navigating more in the realms of uncertainty, ambiguity and volatility, and operating in multicultural and diverse arenas as part of our norm.
We now need to develop additional skillsets and mindset to enable us to thrive in this dynamic world, equipping our leaders and teams of today to be the leaders and teams of tomorrow.
We need systems-inspired leaders and teams who transcend beyond emotional and social intelligence and develop the powerful lens of Relationship Systems Intelligence (RSI™).
“Structure Drives Behaviour” – Introducing the Minimum Viable Organisation - Jeremy Renwick
The evidence that “structure drives behaviour” is all around us e.g quarterly reporting driving short-termism and hierarchical organisations focused on delighting senior executives rather than customers or citizens.
Unless organisational structures are changed, any transformation or cultural change will not last; the old ways will re-assert themselves.
The imperative to move to Agile organisations is now acute; existing organisations are being undermined by new entrants, new entrants struggle to scale in a way that maintains their ethos. The stresses and strains caused by these struggles have a very human cost in health and well-being.
What’s needed is a generic Agile organisational structure to replace the traditional hierarchy. One that genuinely enables and empowers people.
Jeremy outlined his ideas on what he calls the “Minimum Viable Organisation”. An organisation that is designed to “minimise damage to people and cost” and can react quickly to our increasingly unpredictable world.
Fast-Track Behavioural Change to deliver 3 times more… - David Taylor & Katie Taylor
…Value, Confidence and Agility from the people that you already have. while stripping out cost, stress and uncertainty
Why? Because when you achieve this, you can achieve anything. Organisations that do this will be strong, resilient, and adaptable, no matter what their competitors, politicians or the economy are doing. Those that don’t, won’t.
In Naked Leader we call it the new 1st Rule of Business – for all organisations all over the world.
That’s the what
Now – the massive question - How?
Creating Intelligent Change - Anne Rod & Nairy McMahon
It is time to reframe change and seriously examine how to navigate the constant flow of impulses and activities which are impacting our teams, organisations and life in general.
We need to create environments and a language where intelligent teams can be created and sustained, allowing us to tap into the immense resources and intelligence that exists before our very eyes. It is time to take a leap from modernist ideas with one strong leader at the helm, to engaging the talent and expertise that is readily available in teams and organisations. And to harness this potential through empowerment and engagement.
