Want Business Agility? Start with Your Managers
Johanna Rothman
Description

Too many organizations think they can reap the benefits of business agility with a framework or tools. However, frameworks and tools don't change the organizational culture. Instead of forcing managers into silos, what if we focused on creating collaborative management teams? We can change what we reward, support managers as they change their roles, and create business agility.

* Discriminate between a culture of outputs with a culture that values learning and experimentation.
