What keeps you awake at night? What are the biggest and most difficult challenges you face? Bring your most wicked problems to this session, and learn new tools to tame them.
Software development is riddled with complexity. Agile methods address some of this complexity, but they aren’t enough. Human Systems Dynamics and Adaptive Action will help you and your teams work through sticky situations with a range of models and methods that are scalable, straightforward to use, and designed to work in complex adaptive systems like software.
Bring a challenge and we will use it to learn three of HSD’s methods for getting you unstuck, along with a brief overview of what Human Systems Dynamics and Adaptive Action are all about.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Participants will walk away with:
  • - high level knowledge of what Human Systems Dynamics
  • - 3 methods they can take back with them to their teams: Adaptive Action, Power of Inquiry, Four Truths
  • - they should be able to explain these methods, use them on their own problems, and use them with others in their team
