Optional Conference 2015 – Designing High-Performance into our Organisations

Posted on Updated on

Here is a video of Simon Roberts’ talk “Designing High-Performance into our Organisations: What can ScrumMasters, managers and other leaders do to help every team to excel?” from Optional Conference 2015, Budapest, Hungary.

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.

Budapest Agile Meetup Group: Comments on Talk about Radical Management in Practice

Posted on Updated on

On 10/03/2013 Simon Roberts talked about how 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”, a guidance is provided on what managers should do to best support the work of agile teams. Simon draws on experiences from Deutsche Telekom’s large scale agile transition, which has involved a dramatic change in management culture.

This talk was well-perceived by the Budapest Agile Community.

Peter Stevens:

Scrum is at the vanguard of a major shift in the management paradigm. The new paradigm is called Radical Management, based on Steve Denning’s book of the same name. What is this shift and how does Scrum fit in?
