In this rapidly changing world where change itself has changed, we need more people to be part of the system to provide evolutionary, disruptive and open innovation! Internet connections, data storage, mobile devices, genome sequencing, everything today is growing at an exponential rate where organisations need to be more adaptive, and change as fast as change itself. **Top-down controlled, managed organisations are bound to die** as there is no time to aks for permission! The only way to survive in this new world is to get your organisation to engage with their (potential) customers and with their employees in order to find the change it needs to survive within this jungle of opportunities. **Being slow is not an option anymore!** Producing low quality is not an option anymore! Neglecting your customers is not an option anymore! One of the options at hand is to **grow self-managing mechanisms within your organisation that are empowered to swiftly act upon the opportunities** at hand. But how do you manage to empower teams in such a way that it is useful and beneficiary to the organisation? As we support many organisations we have discovered a lot of helpful tools and techniques: RACI, LRC, DACI, Situational Leadership… and many more. All of them have some truth in them but there is only one that we experienced working 8 out of 10 times instead of occasionally: “Delegation Poker” in combination with “Authority Boards”. In this hands-on session we'll let you discover the power of those 2 techniques yourself and be able to apply them in your day-2-day work (even private) life.
