More and more companies are adopting Agile Management as an alternative to the traditional "command and control" model that was the dominant management paradigm of the industrial age.
This new model has allowed companies to innovate faster, helping them be more competitive in increasingly competitive markets.
Steve Denning has written extensively on this topic. Here is a good starting point for his explanation of Agile Management .
He starts out this article by saying: >Agile is a vast global movement that is transforming the world of work. >The movement took off in software development in 2001 and is now spreading rapidly to all parts, and all kinds, of organizations, as recognized in 2016 by the citadel of general management—Harvard Business Review—with its article, “Embracing Agile ,” by Darrell K. Rigby, Jeff Sutherland and Hirakata Takeuchi. >There are already hundreds of thousands of Agile practitioners all around the world.
Steve builds his framework for Agile Management around three "laws": - Law of the Small Team - Law of the Customer - Law of the Network
