Handing Over the CEO Role: New CEO for Radtac

25-Apr-2017 12:15:25 Radtac team

        Peter Measey, Chairman and Founder of Radtac       |        Gustav Björkeroth, CEO of Radtac


Embrace change. One of the underlying principles of the Agile manifesto and a mantra we like to guide ourselves by at Radtac. Sometimes you have to embrace change to allow for new, great things to happen.


Along these lines, we would like to announce a new milestone for Radtac: as of this month, Radtac will have a new CEO. Peter Measey, now Chairman and Founder of Radtac, is handing over the CEO role to Gustav Björkeroth, after having been in the CEO seat for the last 20 years.


Everyone at Radtac is looking to the future with excitement, and looking back with gratitude for everything that Peter has accomplished. We hope that you will join us on this new part of our journey with equal excitement.


For now, we would like to pass on a message from both Peter and Gus - one about what the CEO experience has meant to them, and one about the plans and vision for Radtac’s future.

Train. Practice. Trust. (Part III)

**This is the third article in the ‘Train. Practice. Trust’ series. Read Part II here.**

 

“Take responsibility for your actions and the actions of your teammates.” - Navy Seal Code


We've all been there. It’s the same thing that happens to our projects. We have been put under some deadline constraint imposed by people outside of our team, and instead of looking at the process around us, we rush the process because we absolutely need to add more people. ‘The printer is not quick enough, so we need thirty more paper stuffers to make it go faster’. It takes a long time for a new employee to just understand the nature of the business, let alone the dynamics of a new team.


We are constantly engaging in feedback loops. Under stress, our internal and external empiricism kicks in. Add uncertainty to the mix and the Tuckman model for team state still holds true. We are always revisiting the Forming stage.

Train. Practice. Trust. (Part II)

“Great things in business are never done by one person, they're done by a team of people.” - Steve Jobs


**This is the second article in the ‘Train. Practice. Trust’ series. Read Part I here.**


We used to call it team building. Team building is now synonymous with finding enough budget for the team to go out and have a few drinks over a meal. While there is a slim possibility that this could build a team, it just serves the purpose of allowing your team to rest and forget about work for a few hours. More often it's an excuse for the team to vent perhaps moan about the management and the state of the organisation.


As a side note I guarantee that in your team there will be at least one person that won’t attend or doesn't want to attend these social drinking type of events. It’s just not their thing. Recognising this and finding better and alternative ways to include these people into team socialising will be better for you, for the team and for the individual in the long run.

Train. Practice. Trust. (Part I)

16-Mar-2017 15:09:18 Agile teams Training Agile training

This article talks about the value of training, the importance of practice, and the impact of trust.

“We herd sheep, we drive cattle, we lead people. Lead me, follow me, or get out of my way.” - General George Smith Patton, Jr.


Sometimes we lead, sometimes we follow, sometimes we choose to get out of the way - it's a natural cycle that we go through consciously and unconsciously, whether it's with our colleagues, at work, or within our family units at home.


When we go for a walk as a family, I will always try to let my two sons lead the way. I like them to explore, to discover the path, to set the pace for the family. They develop a sense of empowerment and I hope they know that we trust them to make decisions on behalf of us, as the parents, as a team. Now, sometimes that's easier said than done with an imaginative 6 year old and an incredibly energetic 4 year old. As you can understand, patience and guidance are always there waiting in the wings. As a family unit, a family team, we all lead, we all follow, when the boys are covered in mud my wife and I definitely get out of the way.


This works for us, as a family unit we share values, we set goals. We train, we practice, we trust.

Agile Business Transformation Values and Principles (White paper)

When the business environment is complicated, complex or chaotic, evolutionary Agile Business Transformation is more appropriate than large scale revolutionary programmatic business transformation.

This is the second white paper in the Agile Business Transformation series focusing on organisational change. These two white papers are written by Peter Measey, Radtac CEO and Agile business transformation expert. Peter uses his 20+ years of experience to share knowledge and practical examples, coupled with independent research from the industry.

View the 'Why Agile Business Transformation' white paper

While the first white paper in the series deals with the question 'Why Agile business transformation?', the second white paper discusses the values and principles that should characterise an Agile business transformation. Below you can find an extract from the white paper - download the white paper to view the full content.
