Talk Title

In times of change, what scales better than process?

Abstract

Why do we try to scale process, when so many other things scale so much more easily? Starting with some of the underlying business drivers for transformation, we approach the challenges of change from a radically different perspective. Not to reject the process frameworks or to try to fix them, but to change our relationship with them.
