Organisations go through an ongoing co-evolution of structure and culture. For some, when we try and find an approach to ‘scaling agile’ important points are missed, the most important often being enabling the organisation to change direction at no additional cost when needed to harness change as a competitive advantage.

For a long time large banks had no need to worry about their size or complexity, in fact quite the opposite. We now found ourselves in a different world with new threats and opportunities.

During this talk we will look at structure, culture, wastes and the lateral spreading of knowledge within our organisational communities providing some ideas for how to enable the building up (co-evolution) of new structures & cultures rather than trying to tailor down what we already have.
