This is short notice, but we could not pass up this opportunity with a true guru from across the pond!
The Lean and Agile Workplace: People, People, People these are the three principles for designing adaptive, agile and engaging workplaces.
What do work-climate principles tell us about the way we need to design, build and operate modern knowledge businesses? Can we design organisations that are adaptive, agile and engaging for employees, managers and leaders alike? Can we really change cultures and management thinking in reasonably short time-frames? How do we move away from direct and control leadership towards an environment where everyone is a leader who listens and adapts? This is a call to action to design back in the employees’ willing contribution and establish a real human enterprise that is adaptive, agile and engaging – for everyone.
