What is Management 3.0?

Management 3.0 is a revolution in modern management, currently happening in more than 20 countries. It began in 2010 for the agile software community and since has spread to thousands of events with hundreds of facilitators in industries like human resources, change management, startups, project management and any companies looking to increase employee engagement.

  • What is Management 1.0? It’s simply doing the wrong thing, by treating people like cogs in a system.
  • What is Management 2.0? It’s doing the right thing in the wrong way, with good intentions but old-fashioned top-down hierarchical initiatives.
  • What is Management 3.0? It is the future of management, which is all about doing the right thing for your team, involving everyone in improving the system and fostering employee engagement. Anyone has the opportunity to influence change and to participate in leadership.

Management 3.0 is a workshop, a course, a couple of books, and a collection of concrete practices, to inspire managers and team members, who face the challenge of transforming their organizations to an agile and lean mindset. We achieve this by providing guidance and practices, and by applying new thinking to the craft, art, and science of management and leadership.

The Management 3.0 workout practices aim at leaders and knowledge workers who are trying to be more agile in their approach to management. The courses and workshops typically draw a mix of team leaders, development managers, IT directors, agile coaches, HR managers, project managers, scrum masters, product owners, and creative workers.
