Mobile work and home office are on everyone’s lips, but there are increasing voices that agility and spatial distance are not optimal in the long run. This reasoning is based on the fact that cooperation requires a certain amount of trust. The agile coach says in my roundtable: Trust develops from person to person, not from screen to screen. “For this reason, numerous office concepts in the form of new buildings are currently being tested by corporations and medium-sized companies. In the following I would like to introduce the concepts of my roundtable participants and show initial findings in their daily work with them. If you need some prior knowledge, you can read these articles: Declaration of NewWork What is work 4.0 Roundtable on Work 4.0 NewWork using the example of an IT group The creation of software is a process that involves a high degree of division of labor.…

The topic of digital transformation is on everyone’s lips and is leading to a so-called “digital change” in many companies. According to many companies, this digital change first requires a digital strategy. But what does this mean for companies and what can such a digital strategy for digital change look like? Digital strategy To counteract the rapid pace of digital transformation, many sources suggest “transforming the company in an agile manner”. One Article on agility and digital transformation I have already published. A fundamental change from analog business models to digital is also in the foreground for the digital strategy. The basic idea in this blog is the structural change from companies to “agile” and “evolutionary” companies. Because in this way they can react flexibly and quickly to the coming complexity of the digital transformation. In the following, we will initially start with the fundamental structural change of companies as…

The digital transformation is hitting German companies like a steam hammer.

Based on his investigation of the concept of freedom, the Austro-American social philosopher Frithjof Bergmann developed the concept of the NewWork – of the New job . Bergmann’s criticism begins with a criticism of the American concept of freedom. He does not understand freedom to mean being able to choose between two (more or less bad) alternatives (freedom of choice). Rather, freedom means having the opportunity to do something really important (freedom of action). New job offers space for creativity and personal development. Change in society Our society is changing from an industrial to a knowledge society. Correspondingly, corporate structures and work spaces are also changing: service, information and creative workers are moving into the center of global economic activity, and while the work-life balance is being evoked, the boundaries between professional and private life are blurring. As creative workers, we are becoming increasingly self-employed, even if we are permanently…

Sociocracy, democracy and holacracy are currently on everyone’s lips. According to some media and journal papers, the three concepts are intended to represent the future of companies and could represent the next form of Company evolution after Laloux represent. However, it is not clear which one will really prevail and whether one will prevail at all. Below we will explain the advantages and disadvantages of all three models. The sociocratic enterprise and sociocracy Sociocracy (Latin: socius: companion and kratein: to govern) assumes that all parties involved are the same when it comes to managing decisions in a company. A decision is made as soon as there is no longer any serious counter-argument. The method therefore requires self-motivation, a cooperative togetherness and personal responsibility. In accordance with the Management Y principle, it also aims to ensure that employees “feel good” and therefore strive for self-realization in the company. Management X means…

To manage “Means in English” handle “, but also ” accomplish ” and ” conduct “. Agile leadership starts exactly at this point and defines the agile manager. Especially in times of digital transformation, it is important to lead employees accordingly “digitally”. But how does it work and what approaches are there? Agile leadership is often referred to as digital leadership. One Article on digital leadership is already on my blog. Agile leadership is behavior I found a great approach in the book by Gloger and Rößner. According to the authors, so-called “stars” are to be formed in the organization. These stars should “lead themselves” while managers should establish a “culture of success”. The author also includes a “culture of failure” and “allowing mistakes” to be part of this. The company is also characterized by a voluntary structure. That means everyone is voluntarily in the company and also gets involved…

More quickly! More quickly! More quickly! The world is turning faster and faster. Doesn’t that seem like that to you too? More and more projects and emails have to be processed every day and all of this in parallel. According to many authors, there is a clear problem here between external and internal requirements of the company. According to Brandes et al. the concept of sociocracy. What this means, I already have in explained another article. From this framework, the authors Brandes et al. the framework “Management Y”. More humanity in management According to the authors, successful organizations display a mature and humane culture. A paradigm shift from management X to management Y is taking place. Management Y serves the employee. People are not lazy, they are ready to make good contributions to something big. Living Management Y fundamentally changes our image of man from authority to serving management. Brandes…

In research, software tests are the area that is closest to IT development. The area of software development is also increasingly defined by the Scrum principle, which of course has an impact on testing as a management discipline. In this article I would like to describe in detail what these effects look like and go into this in more depth in my research. Baumgartner et al. (2013, p. 3) show in the figure above that Scrum one process for all roles Are defined. In the picture you can see how this one process combines the roles of the project manager, requirements engineer and tester. “Test” as a discipline no longer exists in isolation from Scrum. Rather, like the other roles, the tester becomes part of the overall agile process. In the representation of Baumgartner et al. (2013, p. 101) we see how the role of the new, agile tester is…
