Management and Coaching in the Agile World
About the Book
Agility seems to be everybody’s darling these days. Many companies dream of becoming more flexible and responsive. They want to better cope with the complex challenges of a rapidly changing environment and make their business faster and more innovative. What is needed to fulfil this dream? What can we build on? What do we have to change? What does it mean for the way we manage our work? How can professional coaching help?
Self-Organising Enterprises provides practical answers to these questions. By inquiring more than 40 enterprises from various industries and countries it shows why business agility needs self-organisation. Even more, it distils a set of eight principles for any organisation to become both a better place to work and a catalyst for delivering more value to customers.The book describes these principles in great detail and provides concepts and tools that have proven to be helpful.
