Learning Objectives

Agile Lean Leadership Context

Understand the practical implications of the prevailing management Neo-Taylorist paradigm versus ALL. Being able to address the ethical dilemmas.


An insight into different tools and workgroup methods that enable leaders to analyze and assess the current status of their organizations.


Case stories of how others have solved challenges and exploited opportunities. Examination of sample patterns, tools, practices and templates.


Understand the mechanisms that make people in an organization willing to try to change. The importance of psychological safety and disciplined reflection.


What is the real difference? Highlighting the implications of the Neo-Taylorist approach versus Agile Lean Leadership. 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?
      • Templates for working with complex challenges.
      • 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.

“Nobody changes by being told, they have to be shown!” – Timothy Keller
