Never go "back" to work; go forward to work

Never go "back" to work; go forward to work

At the peak of the pandemic, businesses and leaders saw it as a huge inflection point, a great opportunity for individuals to redefine strategies, workplaces, teams, and social contracts. But what they are afraid of is that, after this great opportunity, people will crawl out of the rubble and go back to old ways of working that frankly, hadn’t been working for us for decades.

This time is your opportunity to learn from your peers. This is your opportunity to open up your curiosity, and make sure that you, your team, and your organization never goes back to work, but only goes forward.

Move from "Crisis agile" to agile as your primary operating system

Today, we have to negotiate very clear outcomes-based weekly sprints of our work.

What are each of us and each of our teams going to do this week? And then you allow empowerment during that week to achieve as much as they can achieve. And then a standup at the end of the week determines, what did we do? Where did we struggle, and where are we going for the next week? There’s a negotiation among the team to make sure that everyone is aligned, and off we go.
