In this show Benjamin Mitchell, Karen Rodgers and Kevin Ryan speak with Jurgen Appelo. This is another great show from the ITK team and Jurgen shares his thoughts on complexity theory and systems thinking. Jurgen describes how an understanding of these principles can help teams and organisations achieve success with agile practices. Jurgen also talks about the necessity of adapting mainstream agile practices to reach success in your own context and the importance of ‘avoiding dogma’ to become a mature and successful organisation.
Jurgen is author of www.noop.nl and is author of the book Management 3.0: Leading Agile Developers, Developing Agile Leaders, which describes the role of the manager in Agile organizations. Jurgen also wrote the mini book How to Change the World, which describes his new supermodel for change management. He is also a speaker who is regularly invited to talk at business seminars and conferences around the world.
Jurgen is co-founder of the Agile Lean Europe network (for Agile & Lean thinkers and practitioners in Europe) and the Stoos Network (focusing on change agents for organizational transformation).
