The Leader’s dancefloor is a leadership development framework for Agile leaders to nurture Business Agility and boost learning capabilities of organizations. In this framework I deconstruct leadership in 4 dimensions: Complexity thinking, Personal Dimension (Be a leader, act as a leader and interact with leaders), collective dimension (culture, structure and processes) and Organizational change (leading system evolution).

Business agility is creating a learning organization that fosters faster and better learning. This talk is about understanding the key factors and leadership skills required to nurture learning organizations in order to boost business agility.

What comes to mind when you hear the word agile? Probably Agile software development methodologies like Scrum will come to mind. For everyone else in large organizations, however, the word suggests business agility. Leading for business agility It’s about understanding and nurturing the mindset needed to get an holistic understanding of agility. We are creating a new generation of organizations that gets its value from their learning capabilities. Therefore, Leading to learn is critical to succeed in business agility.

As an Approved Certified Agile Leadership Educator by the Scrum Alliance, I’ll share my thoughts about the key factors and leadership style required to nurture learning organizations in order to boost business agility. This Leadership development framework called „leader’s dancefloor“ is the model that I developed and I use as foundations for my Scrum Alliance Certified Agile Leader training to support Agile leadership development at all levels.

  • Describe true Business Agility

  • Explain the componets of a Learning organization

  • Identify enemies of learning and friends of learning according to Ontological coaching
