Circle Relationship Map
  • What is the real difference? Highlighting the implications of the Neo-Taylorist approach versus ALL. Exercise to describe the differences and how to spot the status of the organization in practice. The ethical dilemmas:
    • Wicked problems. Exploitation or sustainability?
  • Concrete tools for the Leader – How can the leader get a reasonable understanding of the present situation the potential for positive charge and then be able to monitor the development?
    • Produce an ALL Canvas to lay out the key factors 
    • The Future Backwards exercise: understand the present and options for moving in the desired direction?
    • Cynefin assessment. Individual evaluation – in which domain are people comfortable and can contribute?

    • Value and Impact estimation. Value follow up.
  • Organizational tools and templates – Organizational canvas and Relationship diagram. Circle and relationships manifests, different examples. Various blackboard templates for investigation and problem solving. Roadmaps at large.
  • Organizational patterns – Patterns are helpful ideas that can be used as scaffolding, when applying ALL values and principles in context. Contracts, employment etc.
    • A mix of planned and event driven work
    • Crisis, sudden drops into Chaos, crews, re-teaming.
    • ALL Adaptor pattern for incomplete transitions
  • ALL in an imperfect world – Often it is not possible to have the perfect Team, supplier or complete ALL transition:
    • Team Members pulled out for other work.
    • Dependencies on outside experts or other resources.
    • Too few, immature or demotivated Team members. Patterns for conflict resolution.
  • Change – in behavior, driven by clear purpose, useful tools, psychological safety and submitting to transparency.
