“We have to heal the ground so as not to have to cure animals and people.”— André Voisin
Some time ago I was allowed to take part in an exciting workshop on the topic “The secret of fertile soil”. The workshop was organized by the municipality of Steffisburg by the “Kulturgarten” project.The specialist Simon Jöhr, who carried out the workshop, is a member of the “RRegenerative agriculture ”community And has shared its great knowledge of the soil, regenerative agriculture and all the connections with us.
For example, I was allowed to learn:
I find the ideas and principles of regenerative agriculture regarding the ground also have parallels the functioning of organizations.
I think you can find organizations as Complex organisms Look at people who are related to each other, communicate with each other and work together to achieve a common goal.
As a “soil” of an organization, I see people, relationships, communication and the way of cooperation.
I think the better you cultivate this “floor”, the healthier and resilient growing the “products”.
We set off as an organization about 2 years ago Werte and principles of agile software development, The evolutionary resp.generative organizations (according to F. Laloux Reinventing Organizations resp. R. Westrum Typology of organisational cultures) And to discover, learn and live “lean” for our context.
The whole transformation is not completed, will probably never be completed because we have decided to go on this trip to discover and learn a different way in which we (including our partners and customers) are happier and more satisfied andcan work more sensibly together.
This will probably be a continuous process, also with some highs and lows (as we have already had in the past few months: sweat_smile :).Much is not yet going well, some things work pretty well and we are constantly learning and “encourage, admonish, persevere” at the other, so that we can really live our way, our new collaboration culture in everyday life.
Because we deeply believe that things like:
And many other values and principles in the area of “agile” and “lean” simply make sense and our cooperation more satisfied and holistic.
In the upcoming series, we would like to share our values with you, tell of beautiful and less nice experiences and thus also encourage other encouragement new ways of holistic cooperation.
We are convinced that there is more than what we know so far and we are excited to see what we will still discover and learn.
Are you on the trip with us?
This is the first resp.Second article 😀 To our series unser values.
