The Versatile Organization

What comes after Management 3.0, SAFe, and the Spotify Model? Well, it’s not hard to see in which direction the world is moving: organizations that consist of networked individuals who work from anywhere, who form teams on the fly, who focus on the customer experience (CX), who aim for objectives and achieve results, and make that a whole lotta fun for themselves. Let’s unFIX our organizations!

Ask anyone what business agility means and you often hear something along the lines of adapting to change and responding faster. But you will never innovate when you just give customers what they want, at a faster rate. True innovators dig into customer needs and desires and look for the Job-to-Be-Done.

In our new connected age, we need networked individuals who can team with each other on the fly and who can fluidly collaborate and form flexible team structures depending on context. With team topologies and dynamic teams, a business is better equipped to become a continuous learning organization. However, this demands a new approach to organizational design, with the unFIX model.
