Webinar on Implementing Radical Management

Posted on Updated on

On 15 April 2015, Peter Stevens and Simon Roberts were honoured to take part in a webinar on Radical Management as part of Scrum Alliance’s program of webinars supporting the Learning Consortium.

The webinar covered:

  • Radical Management and its five main shifts
  • Transforming organization strategy from shareholder value to something more sustainable (including customer delight)
  • Experiences in applying Radical Management in large organizations
  • Key steps for introducing Radical Management, including engaging with top management, getting early buy-in, training, and coaching

Download the slides from the webinar here.

The webinar is also available as a recording.

After the webinar, the presenters answered many of the questions that we didn’t have time to answer during the presentation itself. The questions and answers are available here.

Thank you for the overwhelmingly positive feedback after the event (including tweets).

Radical Management in Practice

Posted on Updated on

Many organizations are based on a hierarchical bureaucracy with managers who practice command and control. This approach is incompatible with much twenty-first century work, which is knowledge based and best carried out in self-organized teams.

Building on Steve Denning’s “Radical Management”, this presentation provides guidance on what managers should do to best support the work of agile teams.

This draws on experiences from multiple large-scale Agile transitions in Germany and the United Kingdom in the telecommunications and finance sectors.

Designing High-Performance into Our Organisations

Posted on Updated on

These are the slides from my talk at the Optional Conference 2015 in Budapest, Hungary.
My talk at the Optional Conference 2015 in Budapest, Hungary was focussed on Radical Management’s principle number 2: a shift in the role of the manager from a controller to an enabler of self-organizing teams.

It includes:
– what is a high-performance team?
– the key factors for high-performance teams
– organisational design principles for high-performance teams
– what leaders should do to help create an environment in which every team can become a high-performance team

The talk is aimed at ScrumMasters, coaches and managers in organisations that have already or are considering adopting Agile.
