Organizational Models & Team Project Management

If your role or passion involves organizational development, culture, and leadership, then it's worth your time to learn and consider Frederic Laloux's research and Agil/SCRUM methodologies.

Laloux Cultural Model (Organizational Models) + Agile

Based on the book Reinventing Organizations by Frederic Laloux.

If this video perked your interest, you will enjoy the reflective article:  "Laloux Cultural Model and Agile Adoption" by Agile leader Peter Green.

Agile & SCRUM

SCRUM is an Agile Framework for complex product development.  Originating in the IT world, SCRUM is now being adapted and implemented by teams and organizations in a variety of sectors.  So, when you hear "product development," just think of projects with a large scope.  You can get the gist of SCRUM plus a 30-second video here!

Typical SCRUM methodologies use a few of my favorite things
(hence my enthusiasm for the process)
  1. Sticky Notes
  2. Strategic Planning
  3. Flexible Roles (I recommend incorporating StrengthsFinder here!)
  4. Choice
  5. Clear,Measurable Goals
  6. Reflection
