Awesomely Powerful New Ideas
Most organisations are very closed to new ideas about management (amongst other topics). Tech organisations are no exception in this regard.
Ideas that are new, or alien, come with a price tag of uncertainty and fear.
Uncertainty – will these ideas work for us?
And fear – what long-established rules will we have to change to make them work for us?
The ideas themselves are often as old as the hills. But for various reasons don’t make it past the motte and bailey of the organisations that could benefit from them.
BTW Through organisational psychotherapy, I help tech organisations open themselves up to awesomely powerful new ideas.
Here are just a few of the ideas with awesome potential benefits to adopting organisations:
- Agile Software Development ~ Beck, Gilb, et al.
