Digitalization calls for rapid organizational flexibility and adaptability. This has an impact on all dimensions of a company: its strategy, structure, and the processes. Thus, companies are expected to be flexible and both rapidly responsive and resilient to change, which basically asks them to be agile. Yet, doing agile (the mechanics) is different from being agile (the mindset). The mindset lets you apply flexible agile patterns not only for software development teams but for the whole company.
In this workshop, we will examine what being agile really means and how it can be implemented by combining principles from different "streams" like Beyond Budgeting, Open Space, Sociocracy, Agile (BOSSA nova).
Together, these concepts enable a company not only to survive but also to thrive on (digital) disruptions through entrepreneur initiatives. In this session, we will use case studies of companies that are pioneering the combination of these concepts.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Understand the organizational values that support the digital transformation
  • Learn how Beyond Budgeting, Open Space, Sociocracy & Agile combines supporting digitalization
  • Know how you can accelerate your digital transformation company-wide
