New Work

Agility in the nutshell –
An overview

Traditional working structures, which worked well just a few years ago, are constantly coming up against their limits. Value-added processes are becoming increasingly bumpy because people try to respond to increased complexity with linear models of thought and control instead of dealing with freer forms of organisation and agility.

As a manager you do not have to master all agile methods perfectly. However, you should know the basics and the effects of the methods in order to create the best framework for teams to work successfully in complex situations.

Which small changes (workhacks) can be used in everyday life without changing the whole organisation? How can we accelerate cooperation and bring decisions closer to the actual specialists? Which agile methods are suitable for use outside of classical IT development and how do these methods work?
