In this podcast we share our experience on how leaders and managers can and should build organisations that are able to quickly and sustainably adapt to unprecedented change, complexity and ambiguity.

    Mind your Language!

    Mind your Language!

    What does the vocabulary we use have to do with our ability to manage organisations? Well, as it turns out, tremendously! Unless we can make detailed predictions about our organisation, there's a considerable possibility the language we currently use create inappropriate conditions, and false expectations on what can be accomplished. We should make sure to choose language with care.
    My thinking and content in this area is influenced by the following sources:
    - Linguistic Relativity
    - Beyond Process Management - Klara Palmberg
    - Dave Snowden
    - 7 Rules for Positive, Productive Change - Esther Derby
    - Range - David Epstein
    - Radical uncertainty - John Kay & Mervyn King

    Empowered Product Teams

    Empowered Product Teams

    All organisations, teams and leaders have the same goal; to build something that’s successful. In our experience none of them have found the path to success either strait or obvious. Far from all have reached the level of success they aimed for. We’ve found that having Empowered Product Teams have greatly increased the chances for an organisation to meet user needs and deliver business value.

    In this episode we go through:


    What a product team is and isn’t, what they’re about and their purpose.
    When it’s most relevant to have them and how to make best use of them.
    Some of the condition to set them up for success.

    Some of the resources we use in our work and in this episode:

    Wardely Mapping introduction by Simon Wardley
    Cenefin framework introduction dy Dave Snowden
    Spotify DIBB framework explained by Henrik Kniberg
    Marty Cagan writes about Empowered Product Teams and product related topics
    John Cutler on different activities a team could invest in

    People Positive organisations

    People Positive organisations

    Without people no organisation would exist or function. How leaders in an organisation perceive and treat its people has a direct effect on what it can achieve. Anecdotally companies with a people positive view are finding that their employees are highly engaged and bringing their best effort. To large extent the concept of being People Positive is foundational to things we've talked about in previous episodes. In this episode we talk about what it means to be people positive by sharing several concrete examples.
