Why unfix your organization?

  1. Reshape the business: Continuous improvement goes far beyond IT and beyond software and manufacturing. Innovation is more than just Agile and Lean.
  2. Optimize the experience: Customers don't care about products; they care about progress and happiness. Turn product-focused teams into experience enablers.
  3. Ditch the matrix: There's no speed in classical hierarchies and matrix organizations. Only self-managed units can act fast when faced with crises or opportunities.
  4. Fix the transformation: Clean up the mess created with various agile scaling frameworks. Stop the suffering inflicted by harmful implementation programs.
  5. Stop the imitations: Why implement a structure copied from someone else? Dare to be different. Do your own organization design.
  6. Embrace innovation: New ideas don't come from old approaches. You want continuous evolution of the business. Endless flexibility with just enough structure.
  7. Repurpose the managers: Don't buy into the "no managers" mantra. Turn managers into intrapreneurs and get them to manage the system, not the people.
  8. Give people a tribe: People leave companies that fail to offer them a sense of belonging and a feeling of recognition. Don't be that soulless company.
  9. Enable hybrid working: Work is not a place where people go; it is something they do. Be the company that stops pushing people around and starts getting things done.
  10. Start small, grow big: Disruptive change programs rarely work. Take a more gradual approach and then steadily scale up the transformation.
