A truly successful Agile adoption generates tremendous levels of team and organizational learning. Attend this session if you want real success with your Agile adoption by generating tremendous levels of socially-constructed LEARNING at the enterprise (system) level.

This session teaches how to use Open Space Technology (OST) as it is intended to be used: as a tool for transforming your organization. Contrary to popular belief, OST is not for education in conferences. It is specifically designed for generating authentic and lasting LEARNING transformations in organizations. Open Space is a tool for transforming ENTERPRISES.

This session describes how to leverage Open Space to strongly support success in ANY Agile adoption. The session is based on real Agile coaching engagements employing Open Space for enabling Agile adoptions in various organizations from 2009 to 2012.

The ideal audience is project sponsors, executives and those who coach them. NOTE: An understanding of Open Space is assumed. Ideally you have attended an Open Space event before attending this session.

This session explains the strong link between grief, grieving and organizational change. The model explained in this session specifically links griefwork with transitions in organizations, such as Agile adoption. According to this change model, all of the transition is grief and follows a predictable pattern. Organizations can get stuck in some phases of this progression.

Open Space is usually experienced in a diluted form, which is the common form in public “Open Space” events intended for mere education. Genuine Open Space for processing anxiety in organizations and includes careful choice of theme, substantial planning and socialization of the meeting, full proceedings, and more. Open Space is a tool for getting a group of people through a substantial LEARNING transformation.

This is more than a theoretical session. TWO specific organizational case studies are presented and explained. There is a lot of depth here; 90 minut
