The path towards the lean Agile Mindset
Lean Mindset is a destination. This is the basic first myth. The journey constitutes lots of changes internal and external to oneself to reach the promised "mindset". While it is easy to tell leaders and practitioners the path.. as coaches do we know the subtle things of focus that can take us to this state. In my presentation, I would like to share a few important aspects on how we can help organizations to learn the path towards the Lean agile mindset. Some key areas that I would like to address are
1) How to transfer the vision to the employees ?
2) How to focus on the successful patterns?
3) How to have faith and commitment in one's decisions?
4) Measuring outcomes vs measuring deliverables
5) The five stages of learning wisdom as described in our Vedas 8.5 thousands years back
6) How to coach Teams on Empathy?
7) How leaders must vision their organisations?
8) What is success and how leaders must differentiate between being Successful and Victorious?
For all the eight areas, I plan to give you real time stories .
Outline/Structure of the Talk
What is Lean Agile Mindset?
What are the areas of focus for the individuals and teams to move towards the lean mindset
How leaders must communicate their vision ? Transferring the vision to employees is equally important than having a vision . I would like to share the story of Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam
How to focus on getting your vision to reality. The story of the famous American footballer O J Simpson
How to have faith and commitment in one's decisions? The story of Charles Good year who invented Vulcanization.
Measuring outcomes vs measuring deliverables. This is very famous story in Indian heritage that talk abt resistance to adaptability and inability to measuring success in the new world.
The next story is all about the depth of knowledge in our Vedas, where a conversation between a father and son reveals the five stages of learning the "Ultimate wisdom" which indicates the five stages of learning and a continuous learning mindset.
Empathy holds a key in developing a respect for others and I want to share an example how empathy can change the mindset of individuals and organisations
How to build Organisations, I want to share the belief that Americans have about the tree "King Sherman" and what happens if you cut the roots and leaves and make it a Bonsai.
I would like to explain the mindset of individuals being successful or victorious from Clayton and the lessons from the Indian Army.
I am sure that audience will have a great message to take back and will inspire them to think on introspecting in their Lean Agile journey.
