We will run the second talk as a Lean coffee. We are talking to a number of clients on the topic of Digital transformation and we would like to hear and share your experiences. We don't like the world transformation as it already brands a failure: "We have not been able to evolve with the flow of technology for so long that we now need to transform". Agile is suffering from similar challenges to Lean when taking a perspective of Transformation.
Transformation is anti-pattern to the evolutive nature of Lean or Agile. More to the point, it maintains the status-quo of top-down command and stops in its track any effort towards Respect for People. This issue is exacerbated in IT because it is full-on knowledge work by default and interweaves production work and innovation in every day, Complicated and Complex. It requires even more awareness from the leaders. The discussion will focus on exploring how the tools we talked about at previous meet-ups can support driving outcome focused Digital evolution. If transformation should be on the agenda, we'll also explore what should be the new ways of Leading and how to transition to those by developing leadership intelligence and competencies.
