"Antifragile" is a philosophy developed by world-renowned risk analyst and scholar Nassim Nicholas Taleb. According to it antifragile systems not only withstand volatility, randomness, disorder and stressors, but rather improve from them. One example used is the ancient Greek monster Hydra, who after losing a head grew two back. Many think that modern equivalents can be found from Agile, DevOps and Lean Startup approaches. In this presentation we dig into how antifragile models have been deployed into one of Finland's biggest companies. Everything revolves around "tribes" who make progress in their respective fields of interest. Mechanical front embraces e.g. automation, cloud solutions and process development while organic front focuses on e.g. people, building competence, exploration, continual learning and tribe dynamics. Ultimately the tribes form a cell structure that improves from change and for its part realizes the antifragile ideal. Come to see what has been achieved after one year of work, and discuss about the results.
