How many times during the past conference season have I told you that I gave my presentation somewhere on “Why agile teams have nothing to do with business agility”? A lot, huh? That’s exactly how it feels right now: The last few months have been awesome, but now I’m pretty tired from conferencing. That’s why I will be on a conference diet for the coming season.
The feedback on “Why agile teams have nothing to do with business agility” was absolutely sensational. In 100 percent of the cases people came to me after the talk because they completely found themselves and their company in what I said. In addition to keynotes at Lean Kanban North America, Scrum Gathering in Cape Town, London Lean Kanban Days and Agile Central Europe, most recently in Krakow, I gave many keynote speeches in companies, which very often gave the opportunity for further workshops to deal with improving their business agility. Of course, all of this plays together with my model of Flight Levels, which is very well received internationally at the moment. I’m surprised, I’m honored and I’m grateful that people in companies are using my input to find out how things could go better. Many realize that a ready-made framework does not help them in improving their business agility, but that every organization needs individual solutions. Thanks to the Enterprise Kanban Coach training program, there are now also a number of professionally outstanding people who approach their work with the right attitude and know how to apply the flight-level model in a meaningful way.
I will definitely continue to work on these topics and that is also the plan for the coming year: work through the experiences and think ahead based on them. I am of course still available for in-house talks and workshops
But I still have one more: On November 20, 2018 I will give the keynote at the Agile Leadership Nuremberg. I’ll be happy when I see you there!
