Rebels with a Cause

Futurice GmbH, Schützenstraße 6, 10117


Organizations of all kinds need to change - this change is driven by you. You are currently hard at work implementing lean and agile mindsets, you are on the forefront of bringing real user centricity into the DNA of your organisation. Questioning the status quo creates resistance, but questioning you must. So, let's talk about how to be provocative without being lynched.

Come join other Rebels with a Cause in the Futurice office at Checkpoint Charlie. Get inspired by a talk from Johannes Stock, Principal Designer. And share what you learned with likeminded people. Join the revolution!

What is the talk about?

Change is hard. As change agents we face many obstacles in our way to shake up organisation's inertia. To be effective, we need to dance on the fine edge between colluding with our team members and alienating them through our interventions. How can we solve this dilemma?

In this talk I recommend change agents to take position as benevolent rebels. Drawing from my work experience with companies like BMW, Spreadshirt, Porsche and Deutsche Telekom, I introduce concepts and tools that help us wear the rebels sword without the risk of getting lynched.

Understanding the power structure within the system helps us to identify chances and limits of our influence. Trust building activities help us to form strong, much-needed coalitions. Curiosity and humility let us tap into the power of listening without judging. And nurturing a growth mindset of constant learning helps us to deal with inevitable setbacks constructively. This talk is not a case study. It is an encouragement for rebels with a cause.
