Liberating Structures is a repertoire of 33+ simple methods or structures that quickly foster lively participation in groups of any size, making it possible to truly include and unleash everyone. You often find that they productively and playfully disrupt conventional patterns in how we work together.
Imagine an organization driven by purpose where all work, both strategic and operational work, is performed in self organized teams. Imagine an organization with a high degree of trust and transparency, and where multiple sub-cultures naturally develop and are cultivated in different teams depending on needs and the type of work that the team performs.
OPO – Open Participatory Organization – is an open architecture to facilitate creating such organizations. It does not require a whole systems approach to adoption. OPO has been designed with a realistic approach to how people naturally are and has been built on top of world class level understanding of complexity, human psychology and group dynamics.
Every company wants to become „agile“. Barely anyone knows what that means. In my current state of confusion I believe „agile“ means decentralisation of decision powers, reduction of bureaucracy, self-organisation and consequent inviting leadership. For that reason we need to stop the agile cargo cults. We did try to accelerate businesses with scrum theatre by pushing people into teams, pushing them into retrospectives, commitment, reporting and deadlines. The structures of big companies never changed and we celebrate some agile flavoured command and control. Together we will discuss how to apply agile principles to your agile transformation.
