Topics Day 1
Agility: Agility represents a proven approach to leadership and governance of creative teams and people. Leaders and practitioners using Management 3.0 become agile and adaptive, and more resilient, innovative and creative. You will learn about different methods, popular practices, challenges in Agile adoption around the world, and the contribution of the manager and team leader in Agile organizations.
Complexity thinking: Management 3.0 is driven by establishing a deep understanding of complexity theory and providing people with multiple tools and insights to effectively work in complex contexts and situations, and respond to them in agile ways. Complexity thinking is the cornerstone of an Agile mindset. You will learn what complexity theory is, how to think in terms of systems, about the difference between complex and complicated, about fallacies of traditional linear thinking, and suggestions for complexity thinking.
Motivation in your team: Since people are the most important part of an organization and managers must do all they can to keep people active, creative and motivated, we made this topic one of the take-aways from day 1. You will understand the difference between extrinsic and intrinsic motivation, the ten intrinsic desires and the importance of one-on-one meetings, personal assessments, 12 most important questions and 360° evaluations.
Self-organizing teams: In order to make self-organization of teams work in your organization, we will focus on its foundation: how to establish self-organizing teams, authorization distribution, the challenges of empowerment, how to grow relationships of trust, and several techniques for distributed control, such as the 7 levels of delegation, and authority boards.
Topics Day 2
Goal setting: It’s necessary to give people a clear purpose and define goals. We will go through the difference of managing and leading, how to use different criteria to create useful goals, the challenges around management by objectives, and how to protect people and shared resources from any bad effects of self-organization.
Competence development: Teams are only able to achieve their goals if team members are capable enough, and managers must therefore contribute to the development of competence. You will learn how and when to apply the seven approaches of competence development, how to measure progress in a complex system, the effect of sub-optimization, and several tips for useful metrics.
Organizational structures: Many teams operate within the context of a complex organization, and thus it is important to consider structures that enhance communication. You will learn how to grow an organizational structure as a fractal, how to balance specialization and generalization, how to choose between functional and cross-functional teams, about informal leadership and widening job titles, and about treating teams as value units in a value network.
Change management is one of the things people in all kinds of organizations struggle with most and it is important managers and leaders act as change agents. We will discuss the 4 facets of change management which address the system, the individuals, the interactions, and the boundary of the system.
Games and Exercises
Each of the eight topics includes at least one game or exercise. In groups of four to six people, attendees put the newly earned knowledge into practice. Sometimes the attendees play a role of different managers and work against each other. Sometimes they act together as one manager, sharing their thoughts while working on a problem.
Every social activity ends with a debrief and a discussion, so everyone can think about how what they’ve learned functions in their real-life situations. This is also a time to bring up questions and experiences to be addressed by the whole group.
