It depends – co-creating a generative model for co-evolving capabilities

What makes agile so hard? It depends! On what? Context! The outcome of practices depends on the context in which those practices are applied. Teams depend on other teams. Supply depends on demand.
More than just dependencies there are also interdependencies. The outcome of one set of practices depends on the outcome of another set of practices … and vice versa. One team’s existence depends on another team’s existence … and vice versa. Demand also depends on supply and not just the other way around.
In the light of (inter-)dependencies, making context explicit, creates whole new possible futures of becoming. In the meetup we will gradually build up a model that makes context explicit not just in terms of how one set of practices enables another set of practices, but also, the other way around. We will discuss the triple helix of flow, collaboration and learning as the foundation for a generative model for agility. We will open the floor to discuss practical applications and share experiences.
