Management 3.0 is a workshop about the future of work and management, designed to inspire managers and team members, who face the challenge of transforming their organizations to be more innovative, with a higher productivity. It helps managers doing the right thing for your team, involving everyone in improving the system and fostering employee engagement.

Management 3.0 has 8 major topics, which are continually refined and supplemented. The most important goal for Management 3.0 events is for people to take action to improve their organizations. All events adhere to the following principles: theory and practice in small chunks; clear and effective visuals; inspiring stories and metaphors; fun games and exercises; focused group discussions; and concrete practices with tangible results.

We use original course materials developed by Jurgen Appelo and apply 30 years of combined experience of implementing successful Agile transformation and coaching corporate leaders all over the world. All course participants will receive materials of the course exercises and an official Management 3.0 certificate upon completion this course.

Target Audience

Management is not only the managers’ responsibility. It is everyone’s job! Management is too important to leave to the managers.

If you’re a team leader, development manager, delivery manager, middle manager, CEO, human resources manager, project manager, product owner, agile developer, scrum master, or want to be a great people leader regardless of title, this workshop is for you!


Topics Day 1

Agile management is a proven approach to leadership and governance of creative teams and people. You will learn about different methods, popular practices, challenges in Agile adoption around the world, and the contribution of the manager and team leader in Agile organizations.

Complexity thinking is the cornerstone of an Agile mindset. You will learn what complexity theory is, how to think in terms of systems, about the difference between complex and complicated, about fallacies of traditional linear thinking, and suggestions for complexity thinking.

Intrinsic motivation is the reason people get out of bed in the morning. Since people are the most important parts of an organization and managers must do all they can to keep people active, creative, and motivated. You will learn about the difference between extrinsic motivation vs. intrinsic motivation, the ten intrinsic desires, and common techniques for understanding what is important to the people in your teams, such as one-on-one meetings, personal assessments, the 12 most important questions, and 360 degree evaluations.

Self-organisation can offer many answers when it comes to good management. Teams are able to self-organize, but this requires employee empowerment, authorization, and trust from management. You will learn how to make self-organization work, how to distribute authorization in an organization, the challenges of empowerment, how to grow relationships of trust, and several techniques for distributed control, such as the 7 levels of delegation, and authority boards.


Topics Day 2

Goal setting is important, since self-organization can lead to anything. Therefore it’s necessary to protect people and shared resources, and to give people a clear purpose and defined goals. You will learn when to manage and when to lead, how to use different criteria to create useful goals, about the challenges around management by objectives, and how to protect people and shared resources from any bad effects of self-organization.

Competence development is key when it comes to doing a good job. Teams are only able to achieve their goals if team members are capable enough, and managers must therefore contribute to the development of competence. You will learn how and when to apply the seven approaches of competence development, how to measure progress in a complex system, the effect of sub-optimization, and several tips for useful metrics.

Organisational structures significantly impact how an organization works. Many teams operate within the context of a complex organization, and thus it is important to consider structures that enhance communication. You will learn how to grow an organizational structure as a fractal, how to balance specialization and generalization, how to choose between functional and cross-functional teams, about informal leadership and widening job titles, and about treating teams as value units in a value network.

Change management is one of the things people in all kinds of organizations struggle with most. People, teams, and organizations need to improve continuously, in order to defer failure for as long as possible. In practice this means that managers and leaders must act as change agents, trying to change the social complex systems around them. You will learn about the 4 facets of change management, which address the system, the individuals, the interactions, and the boundary of the system.


Games and Exercises

Each of the eight topics includes at least one game or exercise. In groups of four to six people, attendees put into practice the ideas they’ve just learned. Sometimes the attendees play as different managers against each other. Sometimes they act together as one manager, sharing their thoughts while working on a problem.

Every social activity ends with a debrief and a discussion, so that people can relate what they’ve learned to their own situation, and bring up questions and experiences to be addressed by the whole group.

I was not sure what to expect from the Management 3.0 training, but what I can say after the attending the workshop is, it was a great introduction to Agile methods and practices. Voranc’s knowledge and enthusiasm on the topic creates an excellent environment for not only learning but also to gain an understanding on the subject matter. Incorporating practical exercises and relating to actual challenges faced by companies in adopting Agile, really does help to understand the complexities involved and how an organisation might deal with such challenges. I do recommend attending the course to comprehend the risks and rewards of adopting Agile Management practices.

Delavnica ponuja odličen pregled sodobnih pristopov in orodij managementa. Najbolj sem si zapomnil, da zgolj bolj kompleksni sistemi lahko upravljajo manj kompleksne sisteme. Torej, če želite uspešno voditi ter ravnati z ljudmi, morate sami postati bolj kompleksni »sistem« od njih, kar pa najlažje dosežete z novim znanjem in veščinami. Delavnica Managemet 3.0 je eden izmed takšnih korakov, ki vas bo popeljal do boljšega vodenja ljudi, z uporabo najsodobnejšega znanja.

Delavnica Management 3.0 je zanimiva, drugačna, navdihujoča, praktična in zabavna. Voranc pa sproščen, prijazen ter zgovoren predavatelj.

Delavnica Management 3.0 je pod vodstvom Voranca potekala v strokovnem vendar sproščenem vzdušju. Srečanje je potrdilo trenutno uporabljene pristope in dodatno razširilo področje možnosti vpeljave agilnih pristopov in praks. Domiselno sestavljeno predavanje pa nas je preko simpatičnih nalog in izzivov logično vodilo po posameznih sklopih agilnega managementa, kjer smo si z ostalimi udeleženci izmenjali neprecenljive izkušnje in še dodatno poglobili znanje. Vsekakor priporočam.
