Come tomorrow, start with why! – introducing the Mobius map – Kubair Shirazee
Hi, I am Kubair Shirazee, an Agile player-coach who facilitates people and organisations to nurture an agile mindset that is geared towards responsiveness to complexity and change. I work with C-suite and their teams in equal measure to facilitate adoption of agile mindset, practices and frameworks to achieve business outcomes. My work experience spans pharmaceuticals, telecoms, public sector, not-for-profits, retail, automotive, digital agencies and nascent start-ups. I am passionate about agility, agile frameworks, open source, blockchain, internet of everything and their combined potential to transform people, organisations, industries and societies alike.
I have been practising and learning agility in it’s many guises since 1998, I have built five start ups, had three exits, tanked one and learned much from the experience and my fifth and final startup Peace Through Prosperity takes what I know about agile designed and lead enterprise transformation across to social development programs to affect social transformation. Since 2010 this cross pollination has been and remains the most satisfying and insightful of journeys. It has provided me with many new insights, validated some old ones and thrown some out of the window.
Agile Tools Session Host
11:15 – 12 noon on Thursday 26 September 2019 in Broadgate Suite
Stop delivery! Have you got the why right? yours and that of the customers and users?
In this session participants will get an introduction to Mobius, a map that connects discovery and delivery in a continuous journey. Using Mobius, people who design and deliver products and services can delight their customers and sponsors by focusing on improving the outcomes that translate to value. Mobius provides the structure to help organizations reach a balance of insight and validation. Mobius doesn’t prescribe one way of working, it is framework agnostic. Instead, it links together existing tools and frameworks in a cohesive way that’s adaptive and extensible for solving new challenges.
Mobius is a radically simple way for people to focus on the outcomes that matter, it has been at the heart of my own journey of cross pollinating principles, values and practices from enterprise transformation to social transformation, it is applicable in tech and beyond tech.
During this session you’ll be introduced to the map, provided with a starter toolkit to take back and start experimenting from the very next day.
If you like you can read how at Peace Through Prosperity we leveraged Mobius’s to focus on improving outcomes of the NGO and gain deeper insight and validation of the NGOs programs in this article from the Cutter Business Technology Journal.
