The Agile Mindset
Becoming more agile - that's what many companies want in order to remain successful in the digital age. But new processes, working methods and open-plan offices alone are not enough. The attitude, the mindset of the employees and, above all, of the managers is decisive for sustainable change. This attitude is characterized by a way of thinking and acting that productively copes with comprehensive changes and that not only takes people along but lets them grow.
Svenja Hofert defines the term "mindset" and uses concrete approaches from developmental psychology as well as many checklists, case studies and interviews to show how managers develop their employees in a targeted manner in order to drive change forward together.
This book is a translation of the original German 1st edition Das Agile Mindset by Svenja Hofert, published by Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden GmbH, part of Springer Nature in 2018. The translation was done with the help of artificial intelligence (machine translation by the service DeepL.com). A subsequent human revision was done primarily in terms of content, so that the book will read stylistically differently from a conventional translation. Springer Nature works continuously to further the development of tools for the production of books and on the related technologies to support the authors.
