How Agile and Lean Changed my Organization

A session at GOTO Copenhagen 2012

Wednesday 23rd May, 2012

2:05pm to 3:05pm (CET)

The session had one message: Using Agile and Lean on an organizational level kicks ass!

Intrinsic motivation is better than extrinsic motivation, because it’s the key to flow, the centre section between burnout and boreout where you are most productive. Flow is what you can achieve by considering three principles, i.e. autonomy, mastery and purpose. You need autonomy to adjust yourself between burnout and boreout to achieve flow. Mastery is the desire to improve yourself, and it’s essential to flow. Purpose is in what direction you should steer when you master stuff. On an organizational level, management innovations should address autonomy, mastery, and purpose. In the session, I gave plenty of examples from Semco, Whole Foods, and my own company, it-agile. Also, I addressed potential resistance when it comes to management innovations, and I made clear that managment innovation is the best kind of the different types of innovation (operational, product, strategic, management innovations).
