Scrum Professionals – Esther Derby: Leaders At All Levels
April 13 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PDTFree
Organizations that need to respond to a fast-changing environment and desire continuous improvement can’t wait for the chain of command. They need a different way of ensuring people are working towards organizational goals and responding appropriately to a changing environment.
In this talk, Esther Derby introduces the Three Cs model: Clarity, Conditions, and Constraints. When you have clarity, people know what to work on. They know how their work fits into the big picture. Proper conditions ensure people have the means to do the work. Organizational structures and policies support the work. Appropriate constraints communicate what should always be done — and what should never be done. They provide bounded autonomy and prevent flailing. We’ll see how these all work together to enable empowerment, healthy self-organization and provide sufficient structure to maintain purposeful action.
Esther Derby has been called one of the most influential voices within the agile communities when it comes to developing organizations, coaching teams, and transforming management. Esther started her career as a programmer. Over the years she’s worn many hats, including business owner, internal consultant, manager, and team leader. From all these perspectives, one thing was clear: individual, team, and even organizational success depends greatly on the work environment and organizational dynamics. As a result, she’s spent the last twenty-five years helping companies shape their environment for optimum success. More details available at: EstherDerby.com
