Public sector track opening

Founder of Yle Agile Culture Accelerator
Public sector actors play an important role in the development of an agile culture in society and in the well-being of society as a whole. How does the agile transformation work of a public funded company or community reflect the values of your organisation? How do agile methods and practices apply to both management and expert work when you are in areas outside traditional agile? What have you learned from agile in public funded projects? How does strong value based approach affect decision making, leadership and agility?

Olli-Pekka Heinonen

Unlearn or die!

Public service is full of assumptions that hinder us to concentrate on adding value to citizens. Most used procedures to increase operational efficiency in fact decrease it. Public service needs to reinvent itself to answer the crowing expectations of citizens and solve the wicked problems of our times.

Lessons learnt from public sector agile projects

Is agile transformation possible and can agile projects be successful in public sector? Yes, they can, but there are several pitfalls to avoid. In this talk we will share some of the things we have learnt from the public sector projects. Regardless of the domain, projects face similar challenges. We’ll also have some solutions or advice to these challenges.

Towards agile, cross-sectoral, open minded and future orientented Government

Many societal problems, such as climate change and increasing social inequality, are complex and interdependent phenomena that should be examined more comprehensively than is presently done. The current siloed administration and the level of detail and microscale nature of legislation and budgeting, however, make it significantly harder to apply a cross-administrative, comprehensive approach. So-called ‘Phenomen -based’ orientation and a drive for agile, explorative ways of preparation are strongly needed. One concrete step towards a new ecosystem-platform is Work2.0Lab.

Cynefin Framework applied to Conflict Resolution

The Presentation shows one way to use Dave Snowden’s Cynefin Framework for Sensemaking in complex conflicts. Conflicts and crises are always a possibility to innovate Novel Practices. Making Sense of the situation and using enough time and resources to create a new and better normal is often very difficult. How to avoid fast fixes and to find lasting solutions is the question. We have created a new model for innovative Conflict Resolution with the help of Cynefin Framework. The Model is based on the work and experiences of the Aseman Lapset Bunker Team. Resilient communities can use conflicts for innovation and improvement.
