autonomy in alignment
We extend its values and principles to stop bureaucracy. Not altering them, but adding on:
Like the agile and permaculture manifestoes it is based upon, we regard the above as closed to modification but open to extension. Not the last word in agility but the next.
A learning ecosystem of independent coaches and partners working to descale organizations using patterns based on
We use Creative Commons to collaborate on collateral for coaching and training – toolkits, not frameworks – for Descaling Business Agility, 3D Product Management and XDevOps.
The opposite of the Agile Industrial Complex, we're coaches, not trainers, using XSCALE internally to collaborate on client engagements, presentation collateral, patterns and tools.
We don't prescribe XSCALE as a framework nor make clients dependent on XSCALE coaches or partners. We build slender but uncompromising new capabilities that self-propagate - that grow exponentially while proving outcomes, lowering resistance, and reducing risk as they grow.
Self-directing portfolios of self-managing streams of self-organizing teams of the client's own staff through self-propagating transformation. It's quicker, better, cheaper and, yes, safer too.
A team can't change faster than its most resistant member. Nor a stream than its most resistant team. Pushing change on existing groups builds resistance and compromise, making things harder & risker over time.
Instead we pull individual change champions into a slender new capability that grows by splitting and doubling. We measure outcomes to reduce risk and resistance as it grows. Using agile to make agile.
This keeps new and pre-existing capabilities uncompromised, leveraging the benefits of both. It converts change recipients into change leaders by immersion, not instruction. Which is quicker, cheaper, better, and safer than pushing change.
