Budapest Agile Meetup Group: Comments on Talk about Radical Management in Practice

Posted on Updated on

On 10/03/2013 Simon Roberts talked about how many organizations are based on a hierarchical bureaucracy with managers who practice command and control. This approach is incompatible with much twenty-first century work, which is knowledge based and best carried out in self-organized teams.

Building on Steve Denning’s “Radical Management”, a guidance is provided on what managers should do to best support the work of agile teams. Simon draws on experiences from Deutsche Telekom’s large scale agile transition, which has involved a dramatic change in management culture.

This talk was well-perceived by the Budapest Agile Community.
