About the Book
The AO hypothesis is that what we call “Agile” is a dynamic in a system called organization. An Agile Organization is allowing high efficient interactions of people leading to better responsiveness on threats or opportunities.
To ensure such dynamics, the AO model is proposing five areas:
- Structure is not Organization
- Organization allowing Agile Dynamics
- Five transition phases to full Agile Organization
- Five metrics, the five experiences; enterprise experience, organization experience, people experience, customer experience and system experience.
- Five work areas: the platform, the Plexus, Programs, Projects and Swarms
These tools will help coaches, managers, leaders to design a proper engaging “alliance” with all stakeholders of the organization.
AO is an answer to anthropomorphic organizational model or organic working models where all the actors are engaged on a shared purpose.
About the Author
Pierre is a French-German agile coach and organizational designer.
His international career brought him to investigate and experience new models or work in various organizations from software development to finance, from Government to manufacturing.
The Kaizen and Lean background lead him to read organizations from systems thinking perspective, and so does agile from him.
Culture and people matters are his moto and are one of the keys he uses to read global organizations on their way to more innovation and responsiveness.
Five years ago, Pierre created a program for agile coaches, managers and HR people decoupled from the methodology perspective to have professional coaches having the abilities to tackle globalisation issues. Pierre ´s business engagement and that program generated a tremendous amount of documentation. That documentation is now consolidated in AO.
