About the Book
Managing Self-Organization: This book clears up the misconception that Scrum and other agile management methods function if you simply allow teams to do their own thing. Agility does not excuse anyone from their responsibilities, especially middle management. Quite the opposite, in fact. Agile self-organization needs management in its best form, i.e. it needs managers who are human and remember their humanity.
Boris Gloger and Dieter Rösner show how closely related agility, team development and management are with each other. The theory stays in the background, however. This is not a "learning agile" book that is being developed. You will read about personal crises, personal failures and the understanding how self-organization can be successful.
