Talk Title

Organising for Outcomes

Abstract

Organisational (re)design with a heavy emphasis on culture outlasting structure and reverse Conway’s law from big balls of mud breaking ostensible attempts to outrun it.

 

Every organisation is perfectly optimised to get the results it gets.

 

Is your organisation and are all of the people who devote their time, energy and investment in return for financial tokens and social bonds, happy with the results they get?

 

Yes? Then why are you at SEACON? 

 

No? Thought not. 

 

Change your org or change your org. 

 

In this talk, we will be taking a look at organising for outcomes across an organisation, not only in IT (those last four words being part of the problem). 

 

There is an emerging new normal across organisations. Whether Darwinian or by design.
