The workshop will be laid out in the following manner: Using a poll, we will explore the ways that agile transformations are rolled out and managed today C2 CONCEPTS & C3 CONCRETE PRACTICE (50 MINUTES) Invariably we discover that agile transformation is about organizational change in order to achieve long lasting agility and specific business results. In this section we explore the question that follows: How do we truly transform an organization including its culture and mindset to achieve organizational agility? The key question that allows us to select the best approach is: Where does the process of transforming organizations fit in the spectrum of process complexity (Stacey Matrix)?. Is changing organizations a simple, complex, or anarchic process? If it is a complex process, can we change organizations in a waterfall manner? With project plans, assessments, pre-determined steps, and set team pilots? Or is a more empirical process based on experiments required? Through a series of exercises we will cover:

1. Simple vs. empirical process - What’s the big deal?
2. Truly Breaking News - Organizational Transformation is a Complex Process
3. How do we Start?
4. Designing Experiments
5. Guided Experiments
