I have also spent the last 6 months working with Steve Denning on Radical Management. Radical Management is essentially the values and practices of Scrum, extended to leading an organization. OK, that's an oversimplification, because there are two essential principles which go beyond Scrum: Delighting the customer as the highest goal of an organization, and Leadership Storytelling as an approach to change leadership.
I consider myself a Committed Radical Manager. Steve Denning and I held two courses together in Washington, DC, and one-day workshops in Amsterdam and Sao Paulo. Now Steve has recognized me a 'Recognized and Committed Trainer' of Radical Management. So if you train with me, you can be recognized as well (and whether you actually commit being a radical manager is up to you)!
One thing I have observed over the years: small courses delight the participants better than big courses. So my courses in Zurich are strictly limited to 10 participants. I chose the space to enforce that limitation. I will hold a CSM in Zurich course every month, except during the summer vacation.
I also offer the MasterClass Series on Making The Whole Organization Agile. Focused on topics around Radical Management and Scaling Scrum, these are a series of 1 day workshops on topics like Leadership Storytelling, Team Performance Workshop. I also plan to invite distinguished experts to lead Workshops on related topics, like Beyond Budgeting.
I am kicking off the Fall course season with:
- MasterClass; Scrum Performance Workshop Oct 4 - Special Price: CHF 450 instead of 800.--!
- Intense CSM October 23-24 - Introductory Special CHF 300 off of regular price.
- MasterClass: Leadership Story Telling with Erwin van der Koogh, October 25
- You can register and see the entire course program here.
BTW: I teach all my courses in German, unless someone in the room requires English. Unless otherwise indicated, all course dates are guaranteed.
I have two other projects worth mentioning: the HappinessApp and WIKISPEED. I'm looking forward to building the first European WIKISPEED car in Switzerland. I'll report on them at a later date.
