Learning Fast and Small for Agility with PROBES
Agility requires experimenting continuously in order to Inspect & Adapt continuously and to Learn continuously. So, it’s not just failing fast, but learning fast. In this talk, which is based on the concept of ‘Probes’ from BOSSA nova, we will learn what learning fast means for every individual and the organization as a whole.

By definition, Probes are small, safe-to-fail experiments based on hypotheses derived from reflection via per-learning on the current situation as well as on theory. This is such a great tool not just for Agility enablers but for anyone who wants to bring in change. They can design their own safe-to-fail experiments considering all aspects, and not just but also get validation from peers, users, and approvers of the experiment.

We will learn to define experiments that you can use in your company for bringing agility. This will allow you to create an environment for continuous innovations, an environment where everyone is enrolled which will further create a win-win for everyone.
