August Topic: Scrum the Toyota Way

A Lean or Systems Thinking approach is no longer enough. Companies and organizations are now facing complex challenges in this ever rapidly changing globalization and digitization world. Linear thinking will no longer suffice and a nonlinear approach is needed. The use of agile approaches such as Scrum is part of that change of thinking but it is not enough. Companies and organizations must embrace new styles of leadership. In approaching this problem Toyota Connected has started to evolve lean thinking beyond TPS and have created the Toyota Flow System to address 3 core pillars of required change, Complexity Thinking, Distributed Leadership, and Team Science. Nigel Thurlow will explain the journey that took him to create this system, how the triple helix of these 3 pillars forms the DNA of organizations, and what this new approach means for Toyota, and industry at large.
