Practition – Practice

This course covers the practicalities of introducing Agile Lean Leadership (ALL) into an organization. Patterns, methods and templates to be inspired from are presented and discussed. If you want people to change behavior you have to give them tools that allow them to do so.

This ALL Practition course is for those leaders, who want to get a solid handle on templates, tools and patterns that can be brought into action when embarking on a transformation. The course builds on the Foundation or the Executive course and provides the participant with practical tools for implementing in the organization.

Circle Relationship Map
  • What is the real difference? Highlighting the implications of the Neo-Taylorist approach versus ALL. Describe in own words the differences and how to spot the status of the organization in practice. The ethical dilemmas:
    • Wicked problems. Exploitation or sustainability?
  • Concrete tools for the Leader – How can the leader get a reasonable understanding of the present and the evolutionary potential therein and monitor the development?
    • An ALL Canvas for the situation at hand, is produced.
    • The Future Backwards exercise, understanding the present; what will move in the desired direction?
    • Cynefin assessment. Individual evaluation – in which domain are people comfortable and can contribute?

    • Value and Impact estimation. Value follow up.
  • Organizational tools and templates – Organizational canvas and Relationship diagram. Circle and relationships manifests, different examples. Various blackboard templates for investigation and problem solving. Roadmaps at large.
  • Organizational patterns – Patterns are helpful ideas that can be used as scaffolding, when applying ALL values and principles in context. Contracts, employment etc.
    • A mix between planned and event driven work
    • Crisis, sudden drops into Chaos, crews, re-teaming.
    • ALL Adaptor pattern for incomplete transitions
  • ALL in an imperfect world – Often it is not possible to have the perfect Team, supplier or complete ALL transition:
    • Team Members pulled out for other work.
    • Dependencies on outside experts or other resources.
    • Too few, immature or demotivated Team members. Patterns for conflict resolution.
  • Change – in behavior, driven by clear purpose, useful tools, psychological safety and submitting to transparency.
