2011/08/24: Agile Boston Monthly Meeting
August 24 2011 meeting of Agile Boston

Scaling Agile from Team to Tribes

Genuine Agile and Scrum creates a willingness to engage in 16 practices that make your team great at learning fast. Practices like getting coached, facilitating your meetings, examining what's normal, and gaming your meetings all lead to more of what we might call "tribal learning". Peter Senge wrote about this stuff in 1990. He called it "the learning organization".

We in the Agile community made it real, around 2001. It now 2011. We have the goods. We know how to learn in teams.....What are we doing about this to make the world of work better ??

Attend this session to learn about a framework to scale Agility from teams to tribes, groups of about 20 to 150 people who share familiarity and values. Tribes are the next level of socialization of Agile learning.

The framework has 3 parts:

1. The Practices. (16 to be specific)

2. Authorization. (If you are a manager that convenes meetings, you can just DO these things)

3. Socialization using Triads, as described in the book TRIBAL LEADERSHIP by Dave Logan.

This promises to be a great meeting. The content is based on the book TRIBAL LEARNING from Dan Mezick. This book is scheduled for publication in October 2011.

All attendees get a pre-release book preview in PDF format

   How to spread loads of Agile inside your company fast
