Networking Session

You can come to the networking session half an hour before, where you can exchange ideas with other change professionals from all over the world (optional). When you access ZOOM, you’ll find an area on the right with different rooms you can go to. If you speak a language other than English, you’ll also find the rooms organized by language.

There you can talk to other members of the Enterprise Agility World community. This option is only available when you access it through the Zoom app on your PC or MAC (not through the web or phone).

If you come to the networking session, after logging on to ZOOM, you’ll see the virtual space on the right and can join any conversation and meet new people from around the world who’re influencing change in organizations.

We will also use this space for the dynamics during the training.

About your training

You must be on time for training. We shut the zoom for new participants 5 minutes after the start.

Some recommendations:

  • Use Swiss or German punctuality to arrive for the training (5 minutes before the start)
  • Participate in the entire training
  • Turn off your camera and microphone
  • Find a quiet place for your training
  • Take advantage of the Enterprise Agility World community networking opportunities and share your ideas or meet others
  • Use your PC or MAC, phone or tablet may not be the best option

Translation to other languages during the training

To have subtitles translated into other languages, you need the latest version of ZOOM. Be sure to update it on your PC before accessing the course. Once you access the course, you can select the “Subtitles” option and your language.

Durint the exercises, we’re also supported by the ambassadors and regional directors from the Enterprise Agility World Community.

Some of them speak Spanish, French, English, etc. and will help you with the exercises through the chat or talks during the exercises.

I’ll give you more information at the beginning of the training.

What are Collective Capabilities?

If you work in a business that’s subject to rapid change, you’ll find that it’s difficult for teams to adapt to highly variable and accelerated market demands. This adaptation usually requires moving people and their skills between teams. The same applies to value streams used in the SAFe framework or others.

Employees exposed to constant team rotation have a low sense of psychological ownership. They don’t feel that they’re part of what they produce as they are always changing teams and don’t generally feel they should take responsibility for what they do. It’s also difficult to manage the movement of these people between teams when everything changes, which often overwhelms managers. 

The collective capabilities model is a new way of organizing the company and enabling it to be always ready, always responsive, and always innovative. These are the 3 outcomes of Enterprise Agility.

Free License for you for the Lean Agile Intelligence Platform

One of the most important components of the Collective Capabilities is the Neuro-Exponential Profiles. We’ve also integrated NeuroXprofiles into Lean Agile Intelligence if you want to use it there instead of using other methods that I’ll also show you.

The benefit is that you’ve a free license that LAI has provided, which in turn will help you measure the level of agility in your organization.
