Agile Leadership for future-proof companies

Latest article in German magazine Informatik Aktuell discusses the challenges of moving company managers to the new way of leading

Fast-moving markets, economic uncertainties and progressive digitization pose major challenges for companies. Instead of responding quickly, many companies are still stuck in old structures. However, economic survival requires a high degree of adaptability. Businesses therefore have to become more agile. For this to work, in addition to intervening in the organization, a new understanding of the roles of all involved is necessary. The executives are particularly challenged here, as agile methods are largely responsible for the teams' decision-making power. So what role do managers play in moving towards more resilience and anti-fragility in their organizations?

We have discussed these topics in a new article published by German magazine Informatik Aktuell.

The original article titled Agile Leadership macht Unternehmen fit für die Zukunft can be read online.
