Expanding Beyond Agile - Unlearning Old Lessons on Our Journey to Teal

Teal is a natural extension of the Agile mindset, but who would have thought flattening the hierarchy could be this difficult! If Agile removes impediments and empowers teams to deliver more frequently and more valuable offerings, Teal removes organizational impediments (hierarchy built on lack of trust) and fosters empowerment by localizing decision making, re-centering activities around an evolutionary purpose, and aligning the personal with the organizational (wholeness). But what actually happens when you put rubber to road and empower teams to recruit, hire, fire, and determine each other's bonuses? Well, things get a little messy. If you're patient and you can set aside short-term outcomes and look to long-term gain, it can prove deeply rewarding.

This session will take you on our own evolutionary journey from green to Teal and share with you lessons learned along the way. If you're curious about alternative management styles or interested in the next extension of Agile, then come sit, chat, and reflect.
