How is your team structure

Development and management of agile team structures

What is it about?

As never before, companies and their managers and employees need to be flexible and open to ongoing changes and adjustments.

This concerns, among other things, the fulfillment of individualized customer needs and market conditions, as well as the increase in effectiveness and speed. In order to be competitive “externally”, companies are increasingly changing their internal structures. Flatter hierarchies and independently working teams open up more flexible and timely options for action.

Around the turn of the millennium, some young people talked about their jobs when they talked about programming new computer programs in a party atmosphere. Once ridiculed, the idea of ​​thinking and living work in a completely different way has, however, also reached many companies. Established companies also want to learn from the agility of up-and-coming startups, and with good reason:

  1. Technological progress today is faster than our learning curve. Dealing with growing complexity and “ignorance” requires new decision heuristics for managers and new ways of working together.
  2. Disruptive innovations and digitization enable new business models and the development of global markets. At the same time, it forces companies to constantly question and continuously adapt their strategies.
  3. Generation Y and Z shape our society with their values ​​as customers, employees and managers. One of the greatest challenges for organizations is to attract, retain and motivate these young people. Managers have to learn to give up control and power. It is also important to strengthen your self-perception and often also to deal with a shift in personal values. And that is demanding. When it comes to team management, great importance is attached to teammates who work effectively. "Mixed" team structures "are considered to be trend-setting. In addition to classically working team colleagues who work in precisely defined areas of responsibility, so-called agile teams are created that can be used flexibly in terms of time and project. And there are team members who are changing and want to be more agile. All three team structures have different demands and both employees and managers have to develop new skills and attitudes in order to meet the increasing demands. The management of different team structures requires special knowledge and skills. Managers should be able to assess which team structures they need in order to meet the requirements of the company. In addition, they have to reliably assess the team potential of the respective employees, decide in which team structure each one fits best and is to be promoted individually.
