Design thinking is emerging as a way to guide organizations in how to accept mystery and move through heuristics before moving to an algorithmic view of business. Complexity theory asks us to be intentional about the systems in which we find ourselves and the transitions we must be prepared to make in and around our systems. By combining these two disciplines, you can begin to balance exploration and exploitation in how you create and sustain Agile adoptions in your teams, groups, and organizations.

About the lecturer:

Jean Tabaka

Jean TabakaI’m an Agile Fellow with Rally Software in Boulder, CO. I love coaching others about Agile software development. My passion in this realm has led me to concentrate on practices in collaboration and leadership. I’m also now reaching into systems thinking, Lean, and Kanban so you’ll see me post about these topics as well. I see a strong interdependency among these various processes and practices. This has led me to also look outside of software and IT to our larger community about sustainable and restorative practices within our physical world

Besides blogging and consulting with Rally clients worldwide, I’ve also authored a book Collaboration Explained: Facilitation Skills for Software Product Leaders, Addison-Wesley 2006. I graduated Magna Cum Laude and as a University Scholar from the University of Missouri. I hold a Masters in French Literature from Michigan State University and a Masters in Computer Science from Johns Hopkins University. When I’m not on the road speaking and coaching about Agile and Lean, you can find me in beautiful Boulder, CO.
