Do you want to learn how to manage real business cases? How to effectively monitor the progress of multiple objectives? How to manage 'never ending stories'? How to favour the growth of your digital and physical products? When it makes sense to hire and when it doesn't? How to make sure teams are really working cross-functionally? How to understand if your product is growing in a physiological way?
Business management in our times requires special skills. We need to learn how to apply evolutionary and adaptive processes and techniques. These concepts and principles are not intuitive and are often misinterpreted. Frequently, management finds itself making decisions contrary to these principles: making decisions that make growth incredibly difficult.
The Knowledge Exchange Workshop Series was created to share, understand and solve real business management challenges in the light of modern evolutionary and adaptive principles, practices and processes.
The result of these workshops is to develop a community of managers capable of managing their projects and the growth of their products in an evolutionary and adaptive way. Able to identify and solve issues related to the physiological growth of products, software systems, teams and organisations.
