Many agile transformations suffer or fail due to insignificant cultural inertia or lackluster leadership support. This should not surprise us.

When we dig deeper, we often find below the surface nothing has changed. We should not expect to transform our organizations if we don't design an ecosystem that allows transformation to grow and thrive.

The future of leadership lies in adaptive environment design (the intentional and continuous creation, modification and removal of organizational structures and practices to yield a more desirable outcome). Drawing from personal experience, I'll describe how leaders must evolve from “managing resources” to “designing systems”. We will explore real-world challenges and insights I've experienced as I continuously adapt the design of my own product development's organizational environment ― from reporting structures and organizational forms to rebalancing authority with accountability as well as revisiting classic issues such as linking performance with compensation plans.

Together we'll build an inter active backlog of topics catered to the audience's highest priorities. You'll hear real-life lessons learned, participate in interactive activities and you will discover new ideas for you to try in your own organization.
