The pandemic is one stark example of the volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous (short VUCA) world we currently live in and this world asks for company-wide agility. Yet, agility in the literal sense that means companies need to be adaptive, responsive, fast, and nimble. Thus, although already created in the 90ies, the original idea of a learning organization, that is a company that facilitates the learning of its members and continuously transforms itself, is more relevant than ever. Yet, how can such a learning organization come to life? BOSSA nova is one approach to company-wide agility by synthesizing Beyond Budgeting, Open Space, Sociocracy & Agility. The key to its success is the concept called probes – small, safe-to-fail experiments based on hypotheses derived from reflection on the current situation as well as on theory. In this session, I will share various probes implemented by different companies that can guide the probing in your company to establish a learning organization.
