Easy-to-use methodology that ensures impactful culture transformation in no time

I'm usually overly differentiated. In this article I deviate from this habit because the goal is nothing less than the change of how culture transformation has been done so far. I have to disenchant a myth that is passed around in practice as if it were law. No, culture transformation does not take long. We're … Weiterlesen Easy-to-use methodology that ensures impactful culture transformation in no time

A framework for organizational agility

About two years ago I developed a model to look at agility holistically (Krapf 2017). Thereby, I have summarized various concepts and theories, which have often been (too) fragmentedly considered on the subject of agility.

My dissertation, which I was able to submit for final review these days, is unlikely … Weiterlesen An effective method to solve complex problems

An experiment aimed at fostering a learning culture

How would we work if we were completely free to choose? How can individual autonomy and team collaboration be aligned in the best possible way?

That’s exactly the question that the initiators … Weiterlesen An experiment aimed at fostering a learning culture

Traditional decision processes and why the new does not have to be perfect

This is a crucial issue, as something new often needs to be legitimised twice. The new solution must not only be better than the existing system, it must be perfect as well.
