Companies are multiplying initiatives to evolve their organization and ways of working to cope with the new challenges of competitive advantage – including how to leverage the potential of digital technologies. These efforts go by various names – Lean and Agile are the most popular, but we also hear about holacracy, the polycratic organization and exponential organizations. Beyond the name tags and labels, the real issue is a revolution in the role of management. Without this revolution, the new technologies don’t deliver on their promise, the organization just gets more complicated when the Agile paraphernalia is added on top of the structure and processes -- and productivity keeps declining while people disengage. Drawing on his contribution to the development of organization theory and his consulting work with more than 500 organizations, Yves Morieux will discuss the practical role of managers, their duties and ways to add value for the new organization to create profitable growth.
