About the Event
Agile, as an industry, is failing many organizations. They are not experiencing the expected results from their investment in agile framework adoption. Therein lies the problem, organizations are adopting frameworks and expecting their chosen framework to manifest agility. However, they've not taken steps to enable their adoption of delivery frameworks to deliver results; they've not yet transformed. To be effective, agile frameworks require a different mental model of management and culture than what was conceived in the Industrial era. But, how is that done? Culture and mental models do not simply change through training, slogans on a poster, or practicing a delivery framework.
In this Webinar, we explore how the Socio-Economic Approach to Management (SEAM) offers hope to organizations through pragmatic and actionable work. SEAM was created to counteract what has been described as the TFW virus, named after early management theorists Fredrick Taylor, Henri Fayol, and Max Weber. Every step in the approach is taken with specific intent and is supported by data gathered from over two-thousand interventions.
SEAM works in part because it targets the system within which individuals exist, as opposed to the individuals. In other words, it's the system that SEAM changes, not the people. Individual change is achieved by creating a system that allows individuals to have a new experience. These new experiences inform beliefs and attitudes which inspire behaviors and actions that provide positive results. As an industry, we MUST do better; we owe it to organizations, ourselves, and society as a whole. If we do not take proven steps to enable the promise of the values and principles encapsulated within the Agile Manifesto, we risk it being reduced to nothing more than words captured on a web page.
