Lean-Agile Strategy Days, London (June 7th & 8th)

I mentioned this exciting event in last month’s roundup and it is fast approaching. Karl Scotland (my co-facilitator) wrote about it here, and I gave my take here. Tickets here [eventbrite.com].

A True North for Lean-Agile?

Imagine… everyone able to work consistently at their best:
 • Individuals, teams, between teams, across the organisation
 • Right conversations, right people, best possible moment
 • Needs anticipated, met at just the right time

If you’ve read the book or seen the blurb for our workshops, those words will seem familiar. As described here, I’d love to seem them used more widely. What do you think?

Looking ahead

In preparation for part II of the book I’ve been performing a new analysis on Agendashift survey data, using Principal Component Analysis (PCA) – a technique popular in machine learning circles – to identify traits common to different sub-populations. I’ll release some early findings soon. There’s some great potential here:

  • Identifying potential case studies for the book
  • Automatically highlighting prompts that have unexpected values
  • Connecting people/organisations based on similarity or complementarity

To keep tabs on this work, on new enhancements to the online tools, and on anything else part II-related, join us in #next-steps on Slack.
