Do you want to become a more effective Lean Agile practitioner and coach? Are you from outside of IT and want to explore Agile in your business context? Would you like to encourage Agility beyond the team?

Join us for a 2 hour of interactive learning as we experiment through Okaloa Flowlab simulations to experience flow, gain deeper insights into what agility means for your organization, and learn effective techniques to mobilize teams at all levels and across all functions.

Okaloa Flowlab is a new, experiential, way of teaching and coaching 21st century business agility that involves the entire organization. Rather than teaching a specific agile or lean method, it allows participants to explore the foundations of flow, self-organization and active learning, that together form the corner stones of an agile business.

On a strategic level it allows participants to experience the difference between 20th century old style linear, reductionist thinking about Agile (“either-or”, “recipe” thinking) and 21st century integrative, systems thinking (“and”, “context-sensitive” thinking). Agile as well as non-agile practitioners can all benefit from this new type of thinking as a way to more effective coaching. By setting aside any dogmatic discussions, it builds a common, deeper, understanding between practitioners of different lean and agile methods leading to change that is more resilient to setback.

Join this free Okaloa Flowlab simulation session to get a taste of a more integrative approach to teaching and coaching 21st century business agility.

Target audience:

Beginner and experienced practitioners and coaches. Beginner practitioners will get a deeper understanding of flow thinking. Advanced practitioners and coaches will learn a new way of teaching and coaching flow thinking.
