Facing disruptive megatrends, such as digitalization, organizations seek new, more adaptive management structures and practices. For the time being, semi-autonomous teams represent the most proven approach to agile organizing despite far-reaching (and much-discussed) concepts, such as Holacracy and Teal. One key conceptual challenge for such proposals is to bring agility to the level of the overall organization, and to make a plausible proposition for the change journey this implies.
With our work on the Agile Organizing Kit, we integrate conceptual innovations in the field of organization design with state of the art management research. Our goal is to offer a practical framework and tools that allow practitioners to start experimenting with agile approaches in their organization’s given context and practices.

The Management Kits Story
At Management Kits we believe that management is learned in practice – so management learning interventions need to go where the action is. To be successful, they need to combine the most relevant thinking with an understanding of practitioners’ challenges. This is why our Kits, trainings, and in-house workshops translate key academic research into practical frameworks and tools for managers, entrepreneurs, and consultants using design thinking methodologies to maximize action learning and support users in developing their own management solutions.
