Today’s challenge is the paradigm shift from product to service orientation and from cost optimization to VALUE optimization through an agile organization and agile leadership!

Leadership in agile self-organizations

Self-organization means, among other things, transparent communication; intensive collaboration within the company as well as with customers; high self-responsibility of employees; the technical and expert knowledge counts for taking over a task. As a result, some leadership tasks are distributed among employees.

Self-organized companies also need leaders. They develop the employees and define the framework conditions so that each employee can do his or her job in the best possible way, which means the leader becomes a servant leader.

Leaders in agile organizations/self-organizations are given new perspectives and tasks:

  • Accompanying employees in their autonomous development.
  • Promoting agile forms of collaboration and learning.
  • Understanding the advantages and risks of an agile team.
  • Understanding and implementing the management skills required for an agile mindset.
  • Focus on improving the framework.
  • Handing off responsibility, which simplifies processes and leads to a leaner organization.
  • More time for strategy work, innovations, further development, networking.
  • Accompanying agile transformation and promoting cultural development.
  • Developing personally, promoting own strengths.
  • Promote career through experience with self-organization.
