  • How can we measure team performance?
  • How can we decide on salaries and bonuses?
  • How can we define job titles and career paths?
  • How can we replace performance appraisals?
  • How can we motivate our workers?
  • How can we change the organization’s culture?

In agile organizations managers are expected to be “servant leaders” and “systems thinkers”, but nobody explains exactly how to do this on a Monday morning. “Empowering workers” and “Delighting customers” is crucial, but it’s not concrete. Managers, and everyone else, need to know “how” because most organizational problems are management problems.

Management is too important to leave to the managers!

Actionable advice is most appreciated by creative workers. They want to experiment with Delegation Boards, Moving Motivators, Value Stories, Merit Money, and much more. With this book and the workshop we want to give you exactly that: much more.
