The outline below includes the official 2-day Management 3.0 Fundamentals Online Workshop.
- Management and Leadership
- Management 3.0 is a proven approach to leadership, governance of teams, and creative people. Students will learn leadership methods, popular practices, challenges related to Agile adoption, and how a manager or team leader can contribute to the success of an Agile organization. The goal is to manage systems, not people.
- Principles of Management 3.0
- Start by changing yourselves to change organizations. “Be the example you want to see in the world” by applying these Agile leadership principles: engaging people and their interactions, improving the system, helping to make all clients happy, managing the system, not the people, and co-creating work. Also, learn to differentiate between bad management (1.0), management with good intentions but bad results (2.0), and the new model of management (3.0) through specific examples.
- Complexity Thinking
- Complexity thinking is the cornerstone of an agile mindset. Students will learn what complexity theory is, how to use a multitude of perspectives, how to anticipate, explore and adapt, how to think in terms of systems, the difference between complex and complicated, the fallacies of traditional linear thinking, and suggestions for complexity thinking.
- Motivation and Engagement
- What makes employees feel engaged? Why do they get out of bed in the morning? Do they want to make a difference in your organization? People are the most important part of an organization. Leadership must keep them active, creative, and motivated. Students will learn about the difference between extrinsic motivation and intrinsic motivation, the ten intrinsic desires, and common techniques for understanding what’s important to people on your teams, such as individual meetings, personal evaluations, 360-degree questions, and assessments.
- Delegation and Empowerment
- To control or not to control… and at what level? Finding the balance is the true art of management. Teams can self-organize, but doing it properly requires the empowerment of employees and authorization and trust of management. Learn how to operate self-organization, how to distribute authority in an organization, the challenges of empowerment, how to develop relationships of trust, and various techniques for distributed control, such as the seven levels of delegation and authority boards. Learn a management strategy that provides tools and resources to people so they can make good, safe decisions.
- Remote Teams
- This module covers how to manage remote teams, improve communication and administration, and make remote teams more successful. It will also take a look at the benefits of remote teams, such as the ability to eliminate physical costs, the increased pool of people for hire, and the disadvantages of working in remote teams, such as loneliness and how to overcome it. Learn to work out loud and discover tips and tools to start using immediately.
- Better Feedback
- Understand the importance of giving actionable feedback, adopting a solution-based approach. Constructive feedback can keep a team going, give them a feeling of purpose, increase happiness, unlock innovation, and prevent a team from getting discouraged.
- Success and Failure
- Perhaps at this point we should ask ourselves: What can we do to promote a philosophy of continuous improvement? What is the best way to be more productive? Learning does not come from constantly repeating the same practice, but rather through experimenting, failing fast, pivoting, and trying again. In fact, the optimal moment of learning occurs when the probability of failure or success is at 50%. A safe environment for experimentation, sharing, and improving must be cultivated.
