Pragmatic Insights for Successfully Managing Your Unique Agile Team or Organization   In many organizations, management is the biggest obstacle to successful Agile development. Unfortunately, reliable guidance on Agile management has been scarce indeed. Now, leading Agile manager Jurgen Appelo fills that gap, introducing a realistic approach to leading, managing, and growing your Agile team or organization.   Writing for current managers and developers moving into management, Appelo shares insights that are grounded in modern complex systems theory, reflecting the intense complexity of modern software development. Appelo’s Management 3.0 model recognizes that today’s organizations are living, networked systems; that you can’t simply let them run themselves; and that management is primarily about people and relationships.   Management 3.0 doesn’t offer mere checklists or prescriptions to follow slavishly: rather it deepens your understanding of how organizations and Agile teams work, and gives you tools to solve your own problems. Drawing on his extensive experience as an Agile manager and trainer, Appelo identifies the most valuable elements of Agile management, and helps you improve each of them. Coverage includes   Getting beyond “Management 1.0” command hierarchies, and “Management 2.0” fads Understanding how complexity and non-linearity affect your organization–and why the best-laid plans so often fail Giving teams the care and feeding they need to grow on their own Defining boundaries and constraints, so teams can succeed in alignment with company goals Anticipating issues teams won’t or can’t resolve by themselves Sowing the seeds for a culture of software craftsmanship Keeping your people active, creative, motivated, and energized Helping teams develop crucial missing skills and disciplines Crafting organizational networks and communication flows that promote success Making change desirable–and making stagnation painful Implementing continuous improvement that actually works   Thoroughly pragmatic–and never trendy–Jurgen Appelo’s Management 3.0 will help you bring greater agility to any software organization, team, or project.

What you are less aware of is that this micromanagement—even if you intend it to be temporary—often prevents the workers from being able to self-manage or otherwise show that they could handle more authority. So workers continue to act in a dependent way and you are trapped into an exhausting attempt to make all the decisions, while wondering why workers aren’t as responsible as you are.

After you delegate something to an employee, when things go wrong, a good response would be, “What did I do wrong?” Maybe your explanation of the goal wasn’t clear enough. Maybe you didn’t properly define the constraints. Perhaps there was nobody coaching the worker. Maybe you should have selected a different level of authority. Or you should have delegated the work to a team instead of just one person. When something bad happens after you delegate a task to a worker, do not take (back) responsibility for the task. Instead, take responsibility for the way you’ve delegated it.

The universe itself is a boundary. Our planet forms a boundary. Natural resources form boundaries. And cultural constraints in a group of people also form a boundary. What we can learn from this is that there’s always plenty of opportunity for self-organization to take place, and quite often at least something will emerge from that.
