Scale Up Decision Making - Making decisions with 100+ people


Jurgen De Smet was a guiding hand in one of the largest Agile transitions in EU Healthcare. A master of game techniques for serious enterprise, he has taken companies in some of the most risk-averse, regulated industries and made them rock star achievers of sustainable innovation.

Known as tough, knowledgeable, persistent and energizing, he is a driver of Gamestorming across Europe, a Innovation Games Qualified Instructor, and the first to implement Luke Hohmann’s concepts for citizen participation in Budget Games outside the United States. Jurgen is a Certified LeSS Trainer, Licensed Management 3.0 trainer, the author of Budgetspelen: Inwoners bepalen het beleid!, co-author of Personal Kanban in a nutshell: The practical guide to personal happiness and a leader in regional and global communities of practice that keep him freestyling with the best.


A lot of times we discover that **“responsible for setting priorities”**, as it is announced in Agile literature, is not taken seriously within organisations. Not surprisingly, we see and hear about similar settings in other organisations: Product Owners that are responsible to set priorities but do not really know how to; or they do know but they have to deal with strong, powerful and non-collaborative stakeholders (like different market managers by country or segment)… Or they have to deal with 100's of different customers, or... Basically people within organisations have difficulties making decisions and those that have no issue about making decisions are frustrating others that were not involved. Nothing seems to work! So how do we include 100's of people to make a decision? How can we scale our decision making mechanism without adding too much process and/or lean waste? Let's discover different ways of scaling up decision making within an organisation combining offline and online techniques. At the end of the session and if time allows us we'll provide some real life examples of 2 successfully applied and different methods.
