For the first time in Finland: Jurgen Appelo & unFIX foundation workshop! Is it time to unFIX your organization? We have only 19 seats available.
What lies beyond the realm of Management 3.0, SAFe, and the Spotify Model? The future unveils a landscape of networked individuals collaborating across the globe and creatively forming teams with a singular focus on enhancing the customer experience (CX), all powered by artificial intelligence (AI).
In a world where ChatGPT, deep learning, and Large Language Models dominate the headlines, a remarkable transformation is underway. While the debate rages on about job displacement versus job creation, the true impact of AI might lie elsewhere. It’s time to look beyond the surface.
The essence of a complex system lies not in its components but in the dynamic relationships between them. How will AI reshape our collaboration? Historically, humans have been the ones guiding computers, yet now we see the tables turning with machines establishing goals for people. What else might change in how people work together?
The value-add of knowledge work is shrinking rapidly; specialists will be replaced by generalists, and middle managers turn into the chiefs of micro-enterprises. The teams of the future consist of humans and AIs where human value is in physical presence, craftsmanship, and true innovation. Companies need to drive AI adoption across the enterprise, and everything is so unpredictable, organizational structures and ways of working need to be more versatile than ever. Who will help the organization recalibrate continuously?
Join us as we delve into the fascinating realm of AI’s influence on our Ways of Working and learn how the innovative unFIX model pattern library can equip you to not only survive but flourish by dynamically crafting your own methods.
The unFIX model is a pioneering pattern library that assists you in creating adaptable organisation designs. Distinguishing itself from many agile scaling frameworks and self-management methods, unFIX concentrates on fostering continuous innovation and prioritising the human experience. It encourages a gradual transition, dynamic teams, and a significant role for managers.
From here you can find Jurgen’s keynote from Agile Australia, explaining the main principles of unFIX model.
Middle managers, organization designers, HR professionals, team leaders, agile coaches, product managers, business consultants, entrepreneurs.
Short presentations + fun exercises + discussions.

In this workshop, we are pioneers exploring important questions. We won’t have all the answers yet. But for sure, we make some crucial steps toward the future of work.
This workshop is designed by Jurgen Appelo, author of Management 3.0 and Managing for Happiness.
Why unfix your organization?
Reshape the business
Continuous improvement goes far beyond IT and beyond software and manufacturing. Innovation is more than just Agile and Lean.
Optimize the experience
Customers don’t care about products; they care about progress and happiness. Turn product-focused teams into experience enablers.
Ditch the matrix
There’s no speed in classical hierarchies and matrix organizations. Only self-managed units can act fast when faced with crises or opportunities.
Fix the transformation
Clean up the mess created with various agile scaling frameworks. Stop the suffering inflicted by harmful implementation programs.
Stop the imitations
Why implement a structure copied from someone else? Dare to be different. Do your own organization design.
New ideas don’t come from old approaches. You want continuous evolution of the business. Endless flexibility with just enough structure.
Repurpose the managers
Don’t buy into the “no managers” mantra. Turn managers into intrapreneurs and get them to manage the system, not the people.
Give people a tribe
People leave companies that fail to offer them a sense of belonging and a feeling of recognition. Don’t be that soulless company.
Enable hybrid working
Work is not a place where people go; it is something they do. Be the company that stops pushing people around and starts getting things done.
Start small, grow big
Disruptive change programs rarely work. Take a more gradual approach and then steadily scale up the transformation.
