AGILE, NEUROSCIENCE & LEADERSHIP
The 2013 Shift Report from the Deloitte Center for the Edge which studies productivity at work, documents the following:
-- Only 1 in 5 employees is fully engaged
-- 75% employees lack motivation and passion
-- Only 15% of all teams are able to realize their full potential
Say whaaat??? Do you look forward to going to work each day? Are you a business leader or manager struggling with how to improve productivity?
David Rock's SCARF model (Your Brain At Work) is based on the new brain research that seeks to understand what engages knowledge workers and serves productivity and happiness at work. The findings align with agile practices and speak to the "whys" behind many agile practices. When I share this work with executives and managers, they get excited about their "aha's" that emerge. The SCARF models can help you, as a business leader, deepen your understanding for both why and how to rethink policies and company culture to better align with the core of business agility so as to deliver value to clients faster. If you want to understand more about why agile works and discover ways to apply agile to other departments as well as IT, this is an evening for you.
