What comes after Management 3.0, SAFe, and the Spotify Model?
Well, it’s not hard to see in which direction the world is moving: organizations that consist of networked individuals who work from anywhere, who form teams on the fly, who focus on the customer experience (CX), who aim for objectives and achieve results, and make that a whole lotta fun for themselves. Let’s unfix our organizations!
The unFIX model is a pattern library that helps you with versatile organization design. Unlike many agile scaling frameworks and self-management methods, unFIX has its focus on continuous innovation and the human experience. It facilitates gradual change, dynamic teams, and an important role to play for managers.
The unFIX workshop led by Jurgen Appelo, author of Management 3.0 and Managing for Happiness, is beneficial for people who are influencers in their organization regarding team structure and ways of working and for anyone who can influence their organization to promote change.
The unFIX workshop is aimed at Change Makers and:
- HR people
- middle managers
- human resources
- team leaders
- agile coaches
- product managers
Reshape the business
Continuous improvement goes far beyond IT and beyond software and manufacturing. Innovation is more than just Agile and Lean.
Optimize the experience
Customers don’t care about products; they care about progress and happiness. Turn product-focused teams into experience enablers.
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.
Fix the transformation
Clean up the mess created with various agile scaling frameworks. Stop the suffering inflicted by harmful implementation programs.
Stop the imitations
Why implement a structure copied from someone else? Dare to be different. Do your own organization design.
New ideas don’t come from old approaches. You want continuous evolution of the business. Endless flexibility with just enough structure.
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.
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.
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.
Start small, grow big
Disruptive change programs rarely work. Take a more gradual approach and then steadily scale up the transformation.
