While Agile methodologies have proven successful in product development, conventional departmental organization structures may pose challenges to scaling agility and achieving the desired efficiency at the organizational level.

Schneider Electric Fire & Security undertook a two-year experiment, inspired by Holacracy, to scale agility across the entire organization. The presentation explores the team-based organizational structure that emerged around the existing value streams, creating end to end transparency and organizational autonomy.

You will hear why the case organization wanted to go beyond development agility, and what eventually led to the chosen Holacracy inspired model. You will be introduced to the early victories en route, the organization’s current state and how to leverage dynamic governance for systematic improvement.

Are you concerned with moving agile practices to beyond development? Join us, and get inspired!
