This second Agile Lean Leadership Appetizer is also approximately one hour long. The presentation is intended to give participants a clear understanding of the practical details that can and should be addressed in organizations using Agile Lean Leadership (ALL). Afterwards there is a deep-dive question and answer section, where people can get clarification on details

  • How to design Teams that serve customers well?
  • Using manifests to clarify Circles and relations
  • How to delegate jobs to other Circles and how to escalate cross-team-cutting concerns
  • How to scale up and down and working in different cognitive domains (Complex, Complicated, Obvious)
