RTE Circle Keynotes



7h 31min 44sec

What you'll learn

  • SAFe is the beginning of your journey not the end
  • Delegation is not empowerment 
  • If you empower you can make decisions take responsibility, leadership can lay back. But it does not always work well
  • Individuals that are thinking they are personally empowered to act autonomously does not increase collaboration 
  • See empowerment as devolution 
  • Set guard rails instead of rules
  • Introduce the role of Decider / Domain authority 
  • If you have domain authority you should behave as a domain designer  - so you are empowered to make decisions in this domain however you are responsible for seeking advice from all the people we refer to as one degree separated from the decision. 
  • Seek advice
  • Seed consensus as much as you can, however, the consensus is not required 
  • Waiting until we bring everybody to the same level of 10 years' experiences is not an option anymore if we want to be competitive
  • In the modern world, slow is dead, slow is not competitive
  • We want decisions faster, not slower  
  • Bring the problem to the people, not the solution
