Learning is a continuous journey, but it also happens disruptively where you often can only evaluate&capture your progress on hindsight .

 

I believe in LeanStartup practices to be a valuable asset for companies on their way to a learning organization and like to apply the LeanStartup mindset and use the practices in big companies!

A perfect Definition of Done, undone work and the undone department in a large scale scrum context

Craig Larman talked in his LeSS (Large Scale Scrum) course about

  • an imperfect Definition of Done (DoD)
  • a perfect DoD
  • undone work and
  • the "Undone Department"

and to continuously improve, to reduce (and remove!) the undone work.

 

We found this quite interesting, especially in the context of Scrum in large companies, where there is usually a lot of undone work, respectively a big "Undone Department", due to long release cycles.

Agenda&Goals (German)
Agenda&Goals (German)
Let me share the methods used in a release retrospective, where I applied a futurespective and was inspired by the 4-C workshop design used in "Training from the back of the room", which was in my opinion quite successful!

Coaching Dojo with GROW model and Pair Coaching

GROW
GROW

Today Sven (@MrSnow76) introduced the GROW model, the "Coaching Funnel" and "Overcoming obstacles" to the attendees.

This time Sven and me did also do a "Pair Coaching", where we both used the GROW model to  help a colleague to get more ideas (options) to tackle a problem about "product quality" (well, "too many bugs").

My Workshop at Lean Agile Scrum Zürich

Spotify & Angry Birds
Spotify & Angry Birds

On Friday 06.09.2013 I attended the Lean Agile Scrum conference in Zurich, Switzerland, and did a workshop together with my colleague Josef Scherer (@Coach4Scrum).

 

The workshop is called:

Disruptive Innovation & fast feedback cycles

 

We got the biggest room, the auditorium, but we needed to switch because we did an interactive workshop, all work was done in small groups with about 4-5 people each, using an innovation game and two canvasses.

Coaching Dojo with circle coaching & scaling questions

Scaling in Solution Focus
Scaling in Solution Focus

Today we did a short Coaching Dojo (45 minutes) with 4 people. We explored "scaling questions" from "Solution Focus" and did a "circle coaching" (I will call it so) instead of single or pair coaching. It worked out quite well!

Corporate Startup Summit 2013 recap

On August, 26th 2013 I attended the first “Corporate Startup Summit” in Cologne, Germany.

I left the event with some mixed emotions.

I expected more of the event, but I think the topic of intrapreneurship will get "bigger" in the future.

Beobachter Übungen für das Coaching Dojo

(currently only in german)

Ich habe vor geraumer Zeit Beobachter Übungen in 8 Bereichen aufgeschrieben und biete diese  den Beobachtern im Coaching Dojo optional an - denn die Übungen lenken doch sehr ab bzw. erfordern sehr viel Konzentration.
