    Dancing like a facilitator

    This practical workshop will give participants specifical ready-to-use facilitation formats they can use for their future workshops. From information gathering to prioritisation to group management, my purpose is to answer the most important topics of the group in the session itself using facilitation skills.

    Create online engagement with Liberating Structures

    Liberating Structures are easy-to-learn microstructures that enhance collaboration and trust. You can think of them as 33 simple but very powerful exercises, formats or games. Each with its own purpose, but all aimed to help groups move forward effectively. In this online workshop I will guide you through a designed sequence of Liberating Structures, you will experience and learn how these structures bring a special way of online collaboration and conversation. You'll also learn how to facilitate it. We will be mainly using Zoom in this session, and an online collaboration board.

    The Disciplined Approach to Change

    Rethinking an organization in an Agile manner is a challenge that affects every organizational aspects and is surrounded by risks that must be appropriately managed.
    Beyond the used methodologies and frameworks, the goal is always to develop a mindset that allows the organization to " stand on their own feet" and embrace antifragility.
    In this talk we will describe a concrete transformation experience in a company working on the medical sector, with the operational office in Italy, and how it has been completely revolutionized. We will talk about successful changes and the less fortunate experiments, how the company developed its Way of Working (WoW) in agile manner, even going so far as to reorganize of the internal physical spaces. We will also take a look at how the aspects of the Program were developed: from the Portfolio to the Risk Management System, up to the revision of the Quality procedures.

    What a lunch box can teach you about decision making: a convenient guide to coherence

    What was the decision you struggled more with? Are you currently feeling stuck with any decision? What are the variables you take into account when taking decisions? Have you ever thought your answer might be in a lunch box? In this talk I want to share with you what Bentoism is: a (convenient and coherent) way for decision making, allowing you to think of decisions in a full spectrum of your self-interest.

    • practicing decision making in an anti-reductionist approach;
    • practicing the moral courage needed to reflect
    • identifying how decisions unfold in an individual and collective perspective and in different time frames;
    • getting in touch with values for a more generous future;
    • learning a possible way to achieve value- coherent decisions

    Opening Keynote: The future of work is choice

    Many offices will not be able to open and operate at full capacity for a long time. At the same time, some people don’t want to go back to the office, even when it’s safe to do so. Most people don’t want to leave the office behind entirely, preferring instead some sort of hybrid scenario - where they work some days at the office and some days at home. And in the end, I think all people would like the freedom to choose when and where they are most productive.
    So now, as lockdowns are being lifted, companies are re-evaluating their previously held views of remote working - and wondering how we can navigate the new world of working as a hybrid team.

    Trust is the #1 barrier to remote work flexibility

    What: COVID-19 forced millions of people to work from home, many for the first time. In this talk, Kavi Guppta will give best practice and examples on how leaders in organizations can trust and empower their teams when they're working remotely.

    Why: The option to work remotely will continue to become popular. Trusting your team goes hand-in-hand with their productivity.

    Storytime experiment

    Fairy tales are useful and true, because they help us make sense of the world around us. Through this workshop, I will bring the power of storytelling together with group discussions, in order for us to uncover the wisdom hidden behind the text. Throughout the workshop, we will work with understanding and listening to one another, as well as creating a shared meaning and understanding. This can only happen when we let go of our certainty and I do believe that this is what the world currently needs the most.

    How to measure and visualize your organizational culture to improve your working environment

    "Well, that's the way we do things around here." Organizational culture can be a source of comfort and stability in uncertain times... or it can be the stone wall that prevents fresh ideas and much needed change. Having the best agile frameworks and mechanics in place will not help much if the organizational culture is fragmented and misaligned.

    Unfortunately, most companies are not even aware that they have a company culture. If they are, their main tool for improving the culture tends to be motivational posters.

    Considering that culture eats strategy for breakfast, we think it’s high time to take a sharp look at how people do things around there. In this workshop we will look at the importance of having a well understood and coherent culture, explore various ways of visualizing it, and finally see how the impact of improvement actions can be observed and tracked.

    Remote Working - The covid-19 journey of my organization

    In this talk Matteo would like to share the journey he had in his organization and the day-to-day challenges that they faced. He'll cover (at high level) topics like the culture we established in 2019 and how it played a critical role to be successful during covid-19 times. He will cover as well best practices that we implemented during work from home times, what went well so far and the challenges we faced.

    Don’t let your organisation be static, get the flow of work going with STATIK and deliver value to your customers

    In many organisations the teams work effectively but overall the organisation struggles to get results out to the customers. As a result it feels the organisation is not moving forward as little value is generated and the business is stagnating.

    I would like to share some experiences, where my colleagues and I have helped organisations become more agile in the end-to-end value stream of their initiatives from inception of the ideas towards delivering value to the customers. We have based this on the STATIK work by David J. Anderson and created a culture of continuous improvement on the portfolio of ongoing initiatives and continuous improvement of value delivery.

    Every organisation has lot’s of ongoing work and becomes paralysed. How do you start getting an overview of it? How do you improve the coordination and prioritisation of work? How do you improve communication towards stakeholders and the teams? How can you learn and improve to become more effective and create more value?
