Cloud Conference Overview
To respond effectively to Super VUCA it is important to understand first, second and even third-order system change. These are whole-system changes and occur throughout nature. In the operations excellence world, they are recognized as system transformation, or Kaikaku vs Kaizen, transformation vs. improvement. In science, these are called phase transitions, for example, as when ice turns to water or water turns to steam, or visa versa.
In quality world, these changes are called order or regime changes. In Quality theorist Joseph Juran’s Chronic Loss model, first-order change is described as the sporadic spike that once alleviated, brings the homeostatic system back to its previous steady state, but does not alter actual system performance or its underlying nature. We often refer to eliminating these sporadic spikes as firefighting. In Juran’s powerful, simple model, it is the sword of quality improvement that produces the new state of performance, a second-order system change to a new steady state.
A fundamental system change for most organizations is occurring as the business world confronts the tsunami of unprecedented disruption and escalating complexity in the world today. This is driving not a first, but a second-order change in business practices and behaviors, fostering exciting and real possibilities for transforming customer value. To win when everyone is great, when everyone is operating from a second-order paradigm, something new is needed. This is the realm of Super Agile®.
Participants will receive (1) full day registration to the virtual workshop (2) (2) 1 copy of Super Agile®: Higher Ground, and (4) collaboration with an amazing community of practice from all levels and all types of organizations. Third-order change, representing yet another order-of-magnitude, is simply another system-level change.
Join us for Super Agile® Higher Ground III on June 13, 2019 for totally new stories, case studies, practice fields, and a growing community of practice applying Super Agile® principles, including a clear path forward for you and your organization and some unexpected Super Change for yourself.
