Invitation to experiments with organizational change
Organizational learning takes place when people question the existing when they try out new things and learn together. Since there is no specific way but many possibilities, only experimenting will find out what works and what doesn’t work for the people involved. Experiments are in many cases the smarter projects – and especially with soft and complex topics, they are the most sensible. Sometimes you don’t know exactly what it will lead to. One does not know whether it will really be successful. But you would be stupid not to try it. This keynote will show examples of successful and failed experiments from different organizations as well as the resulting insights and learning successes. You will learn how to set up your experiments consciously, give them the appropriate shelter and invite talents to participate voluntarily.

Insights of a transformation journey in an agile environment
The world is rapidly changing. Sustainability and quick response to changes are required in every domain and business aspect. What does it actually mean for doing projects? What is agile leadership and what kind of competencies are needed to enforce it and let it shine within organizations? What kind of competences do people need to adjust, enhance or (even) get rid of? What is the role of senior management as strategic enablers into this newly created landscape? I will share my observations, learnings, challenges, achievements and next steps of a “self-organizing” transformation journey I have been part of.

Self – Awareness, Assessment and Organization with Personal Agility
What is the path to self-organization in projects? We will go through a model that consists of seven different agilities that are essential for the same. Starting from self-awareness, the path then leads to maturity, which will mean honing your Personal Agility. Delving deep into oneself serves the broader ripple effect of the teams, furthering it to the departments and ultimately the whole organization. Creation of internal and external impressions will change the probabilities of the success of a project, team, so on and so forth. The seven agilities in this Personal agility Lighthouse Model (PALHTM model) are education agility, change agility, emotional agility, political agility, cerebral agility, learning agility and outcomes agility. We will use these towards the review of ideas and experiences at the nexus of self-assessment. We will take you aboard a short voyage on how they lead to the view of this dynamism towards the well-being of self-organized teams and projects.
