Workshop: The Cost Of Fear

Presenter:  Oana Junco


Time: Friday 10:00 - 11:45

Zürich 1 & 2

Session Type: Extended Workshop

Duration: 1 hour 45 Minutes


How much do we—as part of our organisations—invest into actions that represent collective reactions to unconfirmed threat scenarios—even when those activities add little value to the desired outcomes?

If you've ever felt frustrated within your organisation because you play through the same irritating scenarios over and over this workshop might be  for you.

Oana will take you through several engaging activities inspired by Theory U. Through these activities you will be able to reflect on the drama triangle and the Theory U's protocol of change and how they might be relevant to your scenarios.

Oana has written on this topic at InfoQ: The Cost of Fear in Organisational Change.

Session Type: Extended Workshop

Duration: 1 hour 45 Minutes

About the Program

This conference is different. We have a guiding theme, but we don't have a fixed program. You will create the program and agenda together at the event so that it emerge around your business needs and our theme.

Open Space Technology

Open Space that provides just enough structure to create the program, plan the outcomes, and design for participation — together.

Seed Sessions

'Seed Sessions' are an ALE tradition. They are a few prepared sessions and a daily keynote, which have been designed in advance to offer the seed germs of an idea for cultivation.

Power Transformance

Our theme is Power Transformance. It signals a basic shift in the power of our work environments using Lean and Agile principles to create change, renewal, and transformation.
