Our topic is . . . Dynamic Governance, or How to Structure your Organization so itself will be Agile.
The meeting will run a little long, as it is a workshop format.
The meeting location will be VERTEX Inc in Berwyn / Paoli
Our Speaker Sheella Mierson, Ph.D. presented this topic earlier this year at Agile Delaware entitled "Dynamic Governance: A Method for Agile Organizations”
Learn a simple process you can use immediately to tighten up your sprint planning meetings and your retrospectives.
Learn also about a new strategy to scale up Scrum to an entire company – even outside the software development area.
The tool is Dynamic Governance (DG), a method of governance, decision-making, and project management, developed in the Netherlands based on cybernetics and systems theory.
A key innovation is its structural approach to improving communication and decision-making. DG supports the broad implementation of Agile principles.
This session will introduce you to the principles of DG, and give you hands-on practice with a new decision-making method. If you wish to read something in advance (optional), see The Creative Forces of Self-Organization or the links below

Left at the top of the ramp. Left at the light on West Swedesford Road Rte 252
Slowly make the sharp Right onto Old Cassatt Road ( it looks like a Driveway )
