Leaders should pursue the goal of growing and transforming organizations that are great places to work, where people are engaged, the work is continually improving, and clients are simply delighted.

Course Outline

The outline below includes the official 2-day Management 3.0 course and an optional 1-day Workout!

  1. Agile Management
    1. A proven approach to leadership and governance of teams and creative people. You will learn about different methods, popular practices, challenges in Agile adoption worldwide, and the contribution of the manager and the team leader in Agile organizations.
  2. Complex Thinking
    1.  Complex thinking is the cornerstone of an agile mindset. You will learn what complexity theory is, how to think in terms of systems, the difference between complex and complicated,  the fallacies of traditional linear thinking, and suggestions for complexity thinking.
  3. Intrinsic Motivation
    1. Intrinsic motivation is the reason people get out of bed in the morning. People are the most important part of an organization and as such, leadership must do everything possible to keep people active, creative, and motivated. You will learn about the difference between extrinsic motivation versus intrinsic motivation, the ten intrinsic desires, and common techniques to understand what is important for people in their teams, such as individual meetings, personal evaluations, the 12 most important ones, 360 degree questions, and assessments.
  4. Self-organization
    1. Self-organization can offer many answers when it comes to good management. Teams can self-organize, but doing it properly requires the empowerment of employees and authorization and trust of management. Learn how to operate self-organization, how to distribute authorization in an organization, the challenges of empowerment, how to develop relationships of trust, and various techniques for distributed control, such as the seven levels of delegation and authority boards.
  5. Set Goals
    1. Setting goals is important since self-organization can lead to anything. Therefore, it is necessary to provide them with a clear purpose and defined objectives. You will learn when to administer and when to lead, how to use different criteria to create useful objectives, about the challenges around management by objectives, and how to protect people and shared resources from the negative effects of self-organization.
  6. Competence Development
    1. Skills development is key when it comes to doing a good job. Teams can only achieve their goals if team members are capable enough. You will learn how and when to apply the seven approaches to skills development, how to measure progress in a complex system, the effect of sub-optimization, and various tips for useful metrics.
  7. Organizational Structures
    1. Organizational structures have a significant impact on how an organization works. Many teams operate within the context of a complex organization. It is important to consider the structures that improve communication. You will learn how to grow an organizational structure as a fractal, how to balance specialization and generalization, how to choose between functional and multi-functional teams, about informal leadership and the expansion of jobs, and about the treatment of teams as units of value in a network of value.
  8. Change Management
    1. Change management is one thing that people in all organizations struggle with. People, teams, and organizations must continually improve if they want to avoid failure. In practice, this means that managers and leaders must act as change agents for the complex social systems that surround them. You will learn about the four facets of change management, which address the system, people, interactions, and system boundaries.
  9. (Optional) Workout! Practices and Techniques
