FAVI, Un exemple - One Beyond Budgeting feedback

English version below.

Dans le document "Organiser pour la complexité", Niels propose des principes d'organisation pour adapter son organization à la complexité. La maturité de ce document est le résultat d’années de travail qui se matérialisent dans ses  autres présentations disponibles en ligne. Ces idées font parti d'un mouvement plus large nommé "Beyond Budgeting" qui se défini comme "un mouvement après le commande et contrôle, pour un modèle de management avec plus d'empowerment et adaptabilité"

Vous trouverez parmi les cas d'utilisation réalisés par "l'International Center for Outperformance", celui de la société FAVI (Voir diapositives en fin de ce billet).

Niels a aussi publié quelques notes intéressantes sur ce sujet.

François Zobrist qui est au centre de la mise en place du management à la FAVI donne dans la vidéo ci-dessous, un témoignage au CJD Biarritz. Vous trouverez des similitudes avec le document précédent et cette vidéo vous permettra d'aborder la littérature disponible sur le site de la société FAVI.

In the document “Organize for complexity”, Niels proposes organizational principles to adapt your firm to complexity. This document’s maturity is the result of years of work, that you can find in his other online documents. These ideas are part of a larger trend named “Beyond budgeting”, that defines itself as movement “beyond command-and-control toward a management model that is more empowered and adaptive”. You can find real use cases, described by the International Center for Outperformance, among them the FAVI case (see slides below). Niels has interesting notes about this subject and I agree with him “FAVI seems like an antithesis to the French standard”. The French video above is feedback from François Zobrist, who made the FAVI transformation from a traditional to a Beyond Budgeting model, but sadly has no English subtitles.

Learning about Data Science?

This is the end of a beautiful summer, and also one of the warmer recorded in France. I’m continuing my journey in the product management world and today I’m living in the product marketing one too.
I will blog about this later.

During this first half of this year, I read several articles on big data and started to understand how important the data science discipline is. Being able to define a direction/goal to search, collecting the proper data, then using a collection of techniques to extract something others can’t see - it sounds like magic.

Also, when I listened to the Udacity Linear Disgression podcast episode “Hunting the Higgs”, I understood people with these skills can be better at solving a problem than the domain experts themselves. Katie Malone explained that in a competition to solve a particle physics problem, the best results came from machine learning people.

Then I read the article about Zenefit on the vision mobile website:
“Zenefits is an insurance company that offer…

Didn't register yet to the European Agile event 29-31 August in Paris?

New personal goals for next years

Happy new year 2015.

After 10 years inside the walls, I’m moving outside!!

Time is running and I have been working in the software world for 13 years and promoting the “software agile thing” in my area, for 6 years. Today, I need to step back. As my professional life has moved from R&D management to Product Marketing Management, my professional focus has shifted and I need  to improve my skills in this area.

I’m writing this article because I would like to thank my growing network and  make sure you won’t be surprised by my new area of interest, that could be outside of your own.

I imagine a few of you, shaking your heads, uttering a pfff of disappointment and saying: Franck and his books, his constant learning curve. For what?

This is really simple: Without a sense of progress, I get bored in my professional activity.

In 2009, for the first time since beginning in this sofware development world, I had a sense of accomplishment. As Agile was the main change we had implemented, I …
