Takeaways From Dave Snowden Talk At The Agile People Sweden Conference 2018

Some takeaways from Dave Snowden talk at the Agile People Sweden Conference 2018.

  • Agile has become the modern equivalent of religious wars
  • You have to keep wild if you want agility and not Agile
  • Everything that is not the law of nature is a shared belief
  • We only see what we are meant to see
  • Abstraction allows the brain to make novel connections
  • Nurture the system instead of designing it; use scaffolding
  • How people interact is more important than who they are and what they do
  • There are major differences between causal and dispositional systems. Lumping them together under “Systems Thinking” creates confusion (and disasters)
  • A generalist is typically a good navigator of a complex adaptive system
