Current conversations

Here are some of the conversations and messages I am currently carrying in our agile and tech communities (https://coaching.benextcompany.com). Presupposition on the quality of the context Whether they are brand new in the role of product owner or scrummaster, or older, I regularly hear in people’s mouths: banks are not sexy as an environment, the media I like much more. This is totally unfounded. It is not the company’s material that will give you its flavor.

Introspection, exposure and coherence

There are many reasons why people are paralyzed. Errors in past messages, misunderstandings about tensions, difficulty in changing cultures, etc. And we will have grasped the switch between a manager who commands and the one who supervises and directs (giving direction, embodying it). All this how to implement it in practice from Monday. This is a question that is often asked. I have explained to you the necessary change in managerial posture and the meaning to be given.

Managerial problem and change of posture

So, in all this, what should we be careful about? To people naturally. To the teams? Certainly not! I don’t give a damn about the teams. I am not interested in teams on this subject. Nothing. Do without me if it’s about accompanying the teams. It is not the teams and team members who will block this fictitious organization. So I don’t care about the teams. Teams are full of different ones, some work, others not so well, but it is generally easy to act if you have the levers of the organization, and above all they very often want to do well.

Why often no one wants to set their organization in motion ?

And for good reason… Hello, Here I am among you. I am Pablo Pernot, on the one hand an organisation coach and on the other hand CEO of beNext. What would I like to talk to you about? Why are you asking me to talk to you? Probably to talk about organizations. I see enough of them. So to evoke reflections based on my past experiences seems appropriate to me. And perhaps to evoke the one that is mine, and with which I have lived for several years, beNext.

Event Storming, a description

The event storming is a very simple workshop. A few rules are enough. It is also very effective and often useful. I was able to mention it in this article in 2016(french), my current situation leads me to talk about it again today. The event storming is, to paraphrase Thomas Pierrain, a real way of harmonizing mental models, in two words, attuning people. It is common to discover people’s surprise when their activity is revealed through visual management through a Kanban system(french).

Ideally

You know these quotes: “They didn’t know it was impossible, so they did it - Mark Twain “ or “That those who think it’s impossible are asked not to disturb those who try “. When we talk about transformation, the evolution of organizations in my context, we often hear: “ideally we should…”. At the beginning of my meetings, I replied: “Yes, I understand”. I stopped. My role is to make the implicit explicit.

Leadership seminar with Olaf Lewitz

Monday 8 and Tuesday 9 July 2019 we are organising with Olaf Lewitz two days of seminar on leadership, with the trust temenos academy that Olaf has been running for several years as the framework. I have been meeting Olaf since 2011 through conferences, seminars, visits with friends. We appreciate each other. I was able to facilitate the Open Space of the Scrum Gathering in Prague in 2015 for example (600 people!

Dilts pyramid and organizational harmonization

Previously and around Kanban I was talking to you about corporate culture, organization, and the need to adapt to it to support the organization. I would like to complete this reading by adding the need for this culture to be aligned, in harmony, “at all levels”. For this reason and in my ongoing reflections at beNext, I would like to tell you about the pyramid of Dilts (that Dilts draws from Bateson).

Dojo Agile at scale

Last Monday, like every Monday, there is a dojo at the vessel. The ship is the offices at beNext. The dojo is the place where you study. Every Monday we propose to the teams on site 1 hour on a subject carried by someone who knows a lot about it (on the subject). Last Monday, therefore, it was a dojo on “agile to scale” because we are often (unfortunately) asked about SAFe.

Temporality of management

When we ask ourselves, as is often the case today, about the managerial posture to have nowadays, about giving meaning and a framework, instead of a command & control management, it is important to understand that the temporality of this management is also changing. I mean by that that a management command & control is a cause and effect management, I ask you that, you do that, good or bad, but the relationship is direct and the time is short, or at least we understand the time it will take.

Making your job

A haunting question among the people around me, especially the youngest ones: how do you find the ideal job, project, mission, product, environment, etc.? The one we will kiffer, love, be proud of, for whom we will get up in the morning? How to find it? Find it? In fact, the answer is probably how to make it! How to design it! When I meet the benexters (the people of beNext), this question is a recurring one.

Dynamic Kanban

Yesterday at Flowcon, the con conference on flow, I was able, with the help of Yannick, to present a session whose objective is to make contextual reading understood in order to adapt Kanban systems to the culture in which they can evolve. For those who were able to participate, here are the elements we discussed. Naturally, be careful for those who would like to participate in the future, it is better not to read the proposals suggested at the end of the session.

User Story Mapping, a tactic tool

These days I use two tools quite well known in the world of design thinking, lean startup, entrepreneurship, or more globally of the agile world: action plan mapping, or tactics, and strategy mapping. Either the user story mapping and impact mapping. I had already covered these tools quite a bit. through different articles but a) I need and want to clarify my point with articles b) my practice has continued to evolve since the previous articles.
