BOSSA Nova Workshop

Online Training; January 31st, February 1st & 3rd, 2023

Company-wide Agility with Beyond Budgeting, Open Space & Sociocracy: Survive & Thrive on Disruption

Today, companies, projects and people are expected to be flexible, rapidly responsive and resilient to change, which basically asks them to be Agile. Lack of an overarching theory about how to expand the Agile Manifesto has led to many fragmented attempts to apply Agile company-wide. In this workshop, we will give you the tools to actually make all that you do more Agile

BOSSA Nova is the #1 skill set needed to prepare your organization for inevitable changes with leadership, staffing, market. All of the aspects of business where, due to unintentionally falling into habits, we get stuck trying relatively the same solutions over and over expecting a better outcome. LEARN HOW TO ITERATE! 

Join John Buck, GovernanceAlive’s founder and co-author of the book Company-wide Agility with Beyond Budgeting, Open Space & Sociocracy: Survive & Thrive on Disruption, for a 3-part workshop diving into these tools so that you can begin using them in your organization or on your next project.

What you will get from attending this workshop:

  • Ability to combine the principles of Beyond Budgeting, Open Space, Sociocracy, and Agile (BOSSA framework) allowing you to accelerate organizational agile transformation.
  • Creative strategies for real-life situations benefiting from probing complexity and leveraging the emergent insights for innovative results.
  • Designs for probes you can use in your organization or project that will make sense of complex patterns that arise in project work.

From a workshop attendee...

At the workshop, I am very impressed by the combining insight of BOSSAnova. We don't have to make One Great Method. 4 frameworks of BOSSA can be effectively harmonized by nova - probe. You have shown us. This insight is very helpful to me. These days, I am interested in NGOs or happiness of people (rather than companies or financial interests.) So, I think that we can reduce our sufferings of body by yoga, of mind by mindfulness of communication by NVC of organization by Sociocracy 🙂 (and overall by teachings of Buddha.) I was concerned whether I should integrate them to One Good Method or not, but now I think that I don't have to! They can be useful enough, if each framework is learned properly and picked-up harmoniously. Wow! Great! Thanks a lot! I appreciate you came here and led the workshop yourself. I am very happy to meet you. I remember your warm and touching words. I wish you're happy too. See you next. with respect, LJ
