AGILE LEADERSHIP -
AN INTEGRATING FRAMEWORK
An "align - empower" Modell of agile leadership
Like everything agile, »agile leadership« has become a popular buzzword in business and organizational life. Despite its frequent use however, agile leadership is a fuzzy concept still. “Something about self-organization and servant leadership”, is the answer you usually get when asking around. The conceptual vagueness leads organizations to discuss agile leadership without a comprehensive and differentiated understanding of the agile leadership landscape. This can lead to misconceptions, frustration, and conflict in agile transformation and related leadership development initiatives and may eventually hamper organizational effectiveness.
In the whitepaper The 'Align - Empower' Model of Agile Leadership, we aim to succinctly discuss the various ideas that have been floating around the concept and based on that introduce a comprehensive framework, the »Align – Empower« Model of Agile Leadership.
