What agile teams can learn from Jazz

Am 12.6. widmen sich Dorin Lupo und Kilian Kemmer der Frage “What agile teams can learn from Jazz?”.

The ability to collaborate efficiently and to be innovative in today’s VUCA world, has become more important and more challenging than ever. This requires a major shift in our mindset: we need a growth mindset embracing challenges, accepting continuous adaptations and understanding leadership as a shared task of the many.

Jazz bands show how collaboration works in a flexible context where planning is hardly possible. With the tradition of jam sessions Jazz players developed inspiring ideas how to deal with self-organization, innovation, failures and leadership. Modern organizations, especially agile teams, can build on these learnings to review their underlying mindsets. Based on references to classic Jazz recordings and a short introduction to Jazz theory the referents show what agile teams can learn from jazz and how teams can apply these learnings to improve processes, support innovation and foster continuous learning to deliver outstanding results.
