Agile Team in Action – A simulation on how to self-organize
August 7, 2019 @ 17:45 - 19:45
Why should your organization be agile? What does “agility” really mean? And how do you become “agile”?
In this meetup you can experience the answers first-hand: The simulation “Agile Team in Action” provides a context where you are facing the challenges of a complex task – and you have to develop the organizational design to “getting it done”.
Organizations need to be agile in order to deal with complexity. Methods and frameworks like SCRUM, Holacracy or Sociocracy promise to tackle those challenges.
Simulations and serious games are tailored to provide an experience regarding the specific challenges of a given contexts. “Agile Team in Action” does this for complex tasks, showing the limits of linear and hierarchical structures to performance in complexity.
Unlike other agile games that focus on the quantitative aspects of workflows like throughput and output, Agile Team in Action addresses consequences of VUCA on organizational design. In “Agile Team in Action”, customer centricity, interdisciplinarity, adaptability and learning are key ingredients in success.
We invite you to give it a try and to find out, how agile principles help you succeed in a complex environment.
