The perfect world of agility
Often agile working and leadership are presented as the panacea for any problem and difficulty. Of course, this is not true. Despite all the advantages (monetary and non-monetary), agile work has natural limits and there are many difficulties during the transformation into an agile organization.
Self-organized work is not for everyone. Some employees just want to do their job from 9.00 to 17.00 and are not interested in new working methods.
Likewise, remote work is not a gain in freedom for everyone. We have experienced this ourselves: Our employees have made it clear that they would like to work together more often co-located and not just virtually. As a result, we now have another central office. This is also part of an agile organisation: to respond to the wishes of the employees.
