Detailed Description

This session is based on the New York bestseller "The tipping point" by Malcolm Gladwell.
We will use the practicle examples from the book to have a discussion on finding discriminators that can help in coaching an organisation to a higher performance level.

We will do a self-insight session and there will be room for discussion and live cases.

Self-insights
Gladwell defines 3 different personality types that contribute to epidemics: Connectors, Mavens and Salesmen. To get self insights we will do a number of self tests:

Goal
As Agile coaches and Scrum masters we have seen ideas and products tip, but we also saw initiatives fail. The goal of the session is to discuss and understand what factors have influence on reaching the Agile Tipping point.
Participants are invited to think of their own environment to see if we can find the factors that might reach a tipping point in their organisation. We will discuss our own experience & one of the cases in the workshop as an example.

Take aways
We have created a MindMap of the book summary for all of you right brainers out there!
