On June 17, a white paper made by myself and two colleagues was published on Unternehmer.de in the magazine. Take a look and read more about agile companies and the meaning.

The agile company – What is the significance of flexible project work?

Here’s a quick teaser:

Companies move, because only what moves can change, or what do you mean? Apparently, this thesis is correct, because former startups, such as Tesla, Amazon and Apple, which are now global corporations, are driving the sweat of fear on the forehead scare scare scare scares established corporations such as Daimler, VW, DHL and Rolex.

A vehicle development in just three hundred and sixty days like Tesla? Delivery of parcels by drone on the same day as with Amazon? Can an innovative watch like the AppleWatch soon attack established brands like Rolex head-on? What makes these companies? They have all integrated agile methods into their daily work and have consistently established an agile “mindset” in the company in recent years. Brave, innovative and agile, like wolves, they are rushing into new markets and opportunities that incumbents are currently not touching.

In order to be able to meet these opportunities, companies need one aspect above all: they have to employ the best employees. Stars and high potentials who are constantly looking outside the box in the company.

One does not want to use the diagram to imagine what the “Generation Z” is likely to place on modern companies. The answer seems obvious. It is: agility in companies!

The full white paper can be found for free in issue 06/2016 on Unternehmer.de. Take a look. I am also currently in the process of an academic publication, which will also be available here in the blog. I am looking forward to your feedback and would like to thank all readers and the numerous mails with feedback on the topic. You can also download the white paper under this link:
