- Senior people at 'waterfall' companies could see that regular people could self-organize.
- We all saw that we all can help each other.
- Each of us learned some important things to use back at the ranch to make lean or agile work better at our real work. Each person got to focus his learning where he or she wanted.
- Most or maybe all of us were 'enlivened.' We felt more hope, more belief that things can change, less alone, more hopeful. We had a sense of a brighter future. This is something that you can never 'buy.'

Lean Agile Open - April 15th, 2016.
We had a great event in Charlotte yesterday, and I hope you did not miss it. Self-organizing people did the best they could (which is actually a lot) to learn as much as they could with other smart people. About Lean and Agile topics. With, I think, the goals of (a) becoming more effective, and (b) making their own loves, making the lives of their team members, and making the lives of their customers ...better. I don't want the event to sound too goody-goody. We all had fun too. But what I want to emphasize first is: we self-organized. And then: it was good. Thanks to many people! Let me name at least these people: Cassandra Wagner, Riddhi Gupta, Murali Varadarajan, and Bob Petruska. But many others also contributed. What was the value?
