Sessions

This is the space were we will be collecting session registration for the Stoos Stampede on 6+7 July. We are not looking for regular talks, where someone talks for an hour to an audience. We are looking for discussions, other interactive sessions and real projects. All sessions will be accommodated. By voting we will see what sessions are popular so we can schedule them in the rooms in the venue we have rented. But we are in the center of Amsterdam with plenty of bars and coffee shops around for all sessions. When creating a session outline please include: - How long it takes - Maximum number of people that can join

Campaign: Sessions

Work one on one with strangers to help them create their story

Max amount of people: 2

 

Throughout the days I will try to grab strangers and work with them to craft one or two stories about companies and managers. Their best moments, their worst and what they are looking for.

 

If you want to be included it helps if you have read my storytelling posts on http://erronis.nl/category/storytelling/

How do we go from vision to validated learning?

For organisations to become "learning networks of individuals creating value" is a great ideal. But it is not going to happen by itself. For individuals in the organisation to form learning networks, they need to know the direction of learning that the organisation wants, and have the tools to validate that learning. The Lean Start-up movement has popularised a number of tools for validated learning. But how do we go ...more »

Management and corporate culture hacking

This week, at the the first Stoos satellite Berlin meetup, Simon came up with the term 'hack' as something he would like to take home from the Stoos stampede. I'd like to build on this idea and propose a session about hacking the corporate and management culture. “Cultural Hacking can be understood as infiltration into systems and the changing of their coding. It is a critical, often even subversive game with cultural ...more »

Improvisation: metaphor and skill

Every respectable book, guru and method on organizational change at least mentions the importance of improvisation: the ability to act without having a script in advance. This skill is often likened to jazz-improvisation. My expertise lies in improvised acting. And I propose to do a 2 hour impro-workshop on this. You will walk away having experienced several basic skills that help improvising. Skills that remarkably ...more »

Beyond Consulting & interorganisational change

Goal: The goal of this session is to generate disruptive ideas that can potentially help overcome tayloristic management that go beyond the established change models, i.e. systemic consulting, seminars, books, etc. plus doing this on a broad level not on a company level. Background: When we think of stooism we all have something in mind, and I’m pretty sure for many of us it’s post-tayloristic, it wants to overcome hierarchies, ...more »

Sociocracy: new governance structure for organizations

Companies are relying more and more on people's brain power instead of their physical capacity. From this sprout the creative ideas necessary to maintain a competitive edge. This asks for a culture in which creativity can flourish. A culture that can handle the tension that generate new ideas, differing opinions and the challenging of existing opinions. It must offer room to chaos and order at the same time. Our existing ...more »

Being the change you want to see in the world

So here we are, changing the way organizations are being managed. Whether or not we are "managers" ourselves, we are part of "managing" our organization. One way or another. That's why I like Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi's saying "be the change you want to see in the world." It reminds us that all change starts within ourselves, as a light for people to follow. So...how can we be lights that initiate change? I hope this ...more »

Learning for complexity. New approaches for knowledge-building

It’s a fact, we are living in the ever increase complexity times, as “change agents”, we still want organizations and their leaders to change their mindset so they can better perform within such circumstances. Now, think about it, if change and learning walk hand in hand, in order to enable organizations to achieve that goal, shouldn’t we radically change the way we’re educating and advising those organizations and their ...more »

Tickling the CFO

Early delivery, working iterations, agile planning, value-driven development, etc. can have enormous impact on the bottom-line. As the CFO is the person having an eye on the money, it seems strange that the CFO is hardly directly addressed. In this session I'd like to explore ways for tickling the CFO. After all, if the person with the money is on your side, things might really stampede fast. [Note for organizers: ...more »

Stoosian leadership skills

Leading "learning networks of individuals" is different from leading traditional organizitions, and it requires different skills. Over the years, I've found a couple of skills from different sources that I found transformed the way I show up and work both in my own organization and with clients. I would love to share the skills I found particularly helpful, and also to hear from you which ones you would add. Perhaps ...more »

Using Personal-Professional Growth to Adapt Business Cultures

Biologically the same principles that govern our growth and evolution as a person govern the beliefs and mindset underpinning business cultures. What if we applied that knowledge to accelerating adaptability and ability to see and work with what we can't see... The forces that create results, both intentional and unintentional.

Leading change good practices

As an external change agent one of the things you have to come up with is some kind of adoption plan. It is debatable if change can be planned and managed but as a consultant you cannot just tell your potential client that you'll just inspect & adapt... well you can but you will probably not get hired if you do! I would like have a working session where people can discuss and exchange their favorite practices/techniques/workshops ...more »
