Agile at Scale, Inspired by Spotify
16. Oktober - 17. OktoberCHF 2200
Veranstaltung in Englisch
The goal of this course is to provide tangible examples of how to create a great place to work that enables agile at scale. Participants will leave inspired with ideas on how to redesign their organization to better engage employees and leverage the power of autonomous teams.
How do you build an organisation that enables agile at scale and unleashes the power of small autonomous teams?
After this two-day training you will have plenty of examples and inspiration from how Spotify grew a dynamic learning organisation that continually reinforces a high-trust culture and supports engaged autonomous teams.
Jimmy Janlén and Joakim Sundén, the teachers of the course, both have long experience from working at Spotify and have been involved in developing several of the concepts of “the Spotify Model”. During this training Jimmy and Joakim shares their experiences and viewpoints as independent agile coaches and trainers, not as representatives of Spotify.
“The Spotify Model” of agile at scale has been getting a surprising amount of attention in the agile community since it was first shared widely in 2012. The Spotify Engineering Culture videos (part 1, part 2) have more than 700 000 views. It was never intended as a framework or a model, it was just a case study of the Spotify way of working at the time. That has not stopped a large number of organizations from copying or imitating the model, often without understanding what it was optimized for, what challenges it comes with or how Spotify has adapted and continued to evolve in the five years since.
Through this training you will…
- Gain a deep and wide knowledge of how Spotify works under the hood
- Be able to see more options on how to improve your organisational design with regards to your context and boundaries
- Learn why Spotify made the decisions they made, what other options were considered, which changes were intentional and which ones were emergent
- Get to know how Spotify combines small autonomous teams with strategic business alignment.
We will explore the underlying principles as well as go into specific practices and mechanisms. How Spotify works with leadership and growing leaders. How they work with innovation. Which values and beliefs shape their culture.
And much much more.
This course is for…
- Progressive leaders and managers
- Agile Coaches, Scrum Masters, Product Managers, Project Managers and Agile Practitioners
- Organisational change agents, consultants and HR
Basic knowledge in Agile principles and practices, e.g., experience with Scrum, will help you better understand some of the content.
