Organisation development in Midrange Magazin
Agile Methods can’t be bought - but they can be learned: this is the premise of the article that I have penned for the May, 2016 issue of the German publication Midrange Magazin.
The article, titled Organisation development using Scrum or Kanban (Organisationsentwicklungnach Scrum oder Kanban) explains how simple rules and transparency are the two things that stand out in Agile Practices like Scrum and Kanban.
However, introducing them into the organization is sometimes not as easy as it seems. The transition to using agile methods doesn’t only change the processes within the company, it also requires a change in mindsets of all the people involved - teams take on more responsibility and management style will need to change from “Command & Control” towards “Agile Leadership”. In order to make these changes successful and long-lasting, a targeted, role-based coaching is necessary.
