A major challenge when transitioning from the classical controlled project execution models to autonomous project execution like Agile, LEAN PDCA or Design Thinking, is to develop and maintain the proper mindset towards boundaries. The strength of these autonomous methods is the ability to provide rapid go-to-market results combined with continuous improvements based on findings and facts.
The challenge during exploring the best business benefits is to objectively identify the real must-have and nice-to-have features and options, especially when the organization is undergoing the transition towards an agile business model.
In the classical controlled delivery and execution models, requirements are given, and the main objective is to fulfill these requirements. In an autonomous agile business model, the team is not working against rigid requirements and needs to explore the path towards optimal business benefits. This does however not mean that there are no boundaries to respect and explore.
Objectives and Outcome: This Leadership training is intended for companies and organizations which have implement Agile and Design Thinking teams and processes or intend to start with it. Autonomous Project Delivery is available in 3 levels:
- Starter – Managers and Executives of organizations which have not yet implemented Agile and Design Thinking concepts in their organization.
- Intermediate – Managers and Executives of organizations which have started to implement Agile and Design Thinking concepts, mostly in IT and technical departments, and wish to embrace Agile and Design Thinking throughout the organization.
- Expert – Managers and Executives of organizations which have already implemented the Agile and Design Thinking principles and need to improve collaboration between different teams and business units.
Participants receive the accompanying Autonomy Readiness Matrix and Agile Complexity Rating checklist.
About Dr. ir Johannes Drooghaag
Dr. ir Johannes Drooghaag, commonly known as JD, started his career in Applied Information Technology and quickly realized that the development and complexity of technology outpaces the development of our understanding of technology.
Working based on the principal that we don’t have to understand the bits and bytes to use technology, but we must understand how to use it optimal and secure, Johannes developed a wide range of consulting services, training programs, keynotes and workshops to allow people and organizations to do just that: embrace technology in the optimal and secure way. The Human Element in Cyber Security, The Human Element in Agile and Cyber Security for Road Warriors (and Couch Potatoes) are examples of these programs.
Working as consultant, trainer and speaker with clients and partners around the globe, the mission is crystal clear. Bridge the gap between what we do and what we know.
I am JD. I love what I do, and so will you!
