Self-organisation is a guiding principle of the agile working model. But what does self-organisation mean for leadership work in real terms? And how is it possible to ensure that the strategy is still pursued? In this post, I’ll be providing further information on the self-organisation of agile teams and their leadership from the perspective of management and executive-level staff. Along with that, I will also outline the approach a company needs to take when developing the organisational framework if it wants to become more agile.
Agile approaches are now very widely accepted. Scrum is often used as a framework and fixed events (meetings) are specified, among other things. Projects in the insurance industry often employ an agile approach, too. Despite that, employees and stakeholders sometimes harbour prejudices. I used to be project controller in a previous life, during which time I was involved in an agile project and was confronted with prejudices at the beginning. In my blog post, I would like to talk about prejudices and my own practical experiences regarding agile approaches based on Scrum.

Scrum and other agile frameworks have been gaining a lot of traction lately, especially in IT projects. These project frameworks are mainly characterised by greater flexibility, faster responsiveness and a stronger focus on end users. Today, Scrum is often combined with other proven methods, techniques and frameworks – such as Kanban, Design Thinking and BusDevOps. What all these approaches have in common is that the chosen path is reflected on in an iterative process and that adaptation to the desired state often requires creativity on the part of those involved. This blog post explores the question of how successful ideas can be generated while also adhering to the objective of maximising the product.
