Course Objectives

Want to build an organisation that enables agile at scale and unleashes the power of small autonomous teams?   This course will give you inspiring real world examples of how Spotify grew a dynamic learning organisation that continually reinforces a high-trust culture and supports engaged autonomous team.

What you will get

  • Gain a deep and wide knowledge of how Spotify works under the hood
  • Enable you to see more options for improving organisational design with regards to your context and boundaries
  • Learn why Spotify made the decisions they made, other options which were considered, and which changes were intentional and which were emergent
  • Explore underlying principles and go into specific practices and mechanisms
  • Learn how to combine small, autonomous teams with strategic business alignment
  • Learn how to work with leadership and growing leaders, innovation and the values and beliefs which shape the culture which created „The Spotify Model“

"Attending the course by Joakim Sundén changed my mind about the Spotify Model. Their journey is a lot more interesting than the buzzwords consultants and managers like to throw around. There is no Spotify Model but there is an attitude to experimenting and learning that everyone can benefit from."

Robert Finan, Agile Coach
