Talk Title


a hierarchical organization transformed in an agile way

In our talk, we show how we transformed an organization that had previously been managed quite hierarchically into an agile one over the course of two years. In small steps, with the involvement of everyone, with learning nuggets and constant reflection.

We had to resist old habits, trust the system and adapt the approach and guidelines several times over the course of time.


Leadership and Hierachy
