Abstract:
Many organizations flatten management structure when they transform to agile. It soon becomes obvious that important activities done by managers are still needed. A community can fill these gaps. They can provide morale, governance, learning and mentorship, recruiting and hiring, mutual support, coordination, sharing, innovation and more!
Unfortunately few companies manage to create a strong communities. Even fewer empower their communities to fill these gaps. This means they are missing the ultimate benefit of communities: strong, empowered communities can transform the organization itself!
Join Shahin and Shawn in this interactive session to explore communities in organizations. Examine the benefits of building great communities. Learn how to spark the community, and how to support it as it evolves. Hear stories of communities empowered to improve the organization. Learn how to make a community into a driver of positive change.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Understanding of the power and influence of community
  • Patterns for starting, building, supporting, and evolving a community
  • Tools to create greater organizational community out of smaller discipline-focused communities
  • Understanding how communities can drive positive changes
