Selected Output from the SFiO Unconference

30 SFiO contributors participated in the first SFiO Unconference on 6 & 7 December 2019, to discuss aspects of Solution Focus in Large Scale Contexts. Being an open space event, there was no agenda, but the Irish College in Leuven soon reverberated with conversations. The editors have selected seven pieces of output from the event and trust you find them informative and interesting.


Using SF in Deutsche Bahn Systel's Organisational Transformation

Frank Gollas

Many Agile practitioners have adopted the SF approach to lead constructive team conversations, invite self-reflection, envisage the future and plan next steps. However, practitioners in DB Systel have taken this relationship to the next level. Briefly, Frank Gollas describes how a company of 4000 employees has woven SF into a large transformative project, building slowly to 300 self-authored teams.
