Ways and miracles of Agile transformations


Since that and for over 8 years, I have been actively supporting Agile approaches. I mainly act as an Agile Consultant, trainer and facilitator for leaders and organizations who wish to integrate this type of posture and shift as new ways of development and new channels for economic and sustainable growth in our west countries. I also work overseas in Guadeloupe, Algeria… Far more interesting is that every of my assertions shall be supported by concrete examples taken from my daily life so that should be acceptable for all participants and each one shall be able to reach an informed opinion. In the beginning of 2015 I created the "Club Agile Provence" in the south east of France as a sharing platform for leaders and managers who can reflect together during workshops about their Agile approaches and practices based on learning expeditions in south of France. I am also a member of the Rotary Club of Avignon-Chateauneuf du Pape and work for Rotary professionnal actions in this way. My professional life began in Paris as controller for great US and GB groups (Rockwell US, Colas GB). Then I installed a management control system in a french group of 17 companies. In 1999 I got through an Lbo with a little B to B regional company (25 employees) in the south of France. Then I developped the business and sold it to a more important group in 2008. That taught me the importance of a well managed team working in an Agile way for the benefit of all. It was my first practical and hands-on experience. Today my main goal in professional life is to share practises about Agile and each new practise which is really able to increase a sustainable development organisation.


This is an interactive conference inspired by a determination to fully implement the collective intelligence. Every organisation have to evolve specifically toward ever greater Agility as there is no standard recipe, but just some different ways. That works wonder and miracles ! How to operate an Agile transition in a credible manner? How to change mindset in an organisation? How were new cultural adjustments and internal process to progressively change? What are the key elements shared by organisations that have successfully weathered the change? And what are the potential pitfalls and problems that they can experience during this transformation? Synergies on all levels can be derived from Agile transformation for the well-being and benefit of all. After having been involved as controller in international groups, I discovered the strength of unlimited potential created by enthusiasm of the staff in my own little company during 10 years. Today I work in favour of win-win organizations where every employee is more responsible with his things and feel better as proactive force. In return, that would make the organization more intelligent and more efficient. Many forward thinking senior executives see this impending change as a clear opportunity to become more competitive as result of having a broader reach and lower costs. That brings also a new dynamic and more well-being for everyone. In this session we will focus on the different ways of working in this direction and case studies from organizations that are getting it right.
