The Performance Triangle

Management Buch: The Performance Triangle

The guide for agile organization and people-centric management

"Lukas Michel, a leading management consultant, argues in his book that to win in an increasingly dynamic, ambiguous, and volatile environment, leadership teams in most industries must be agile – able to react flexibly to early signs and act on them quickly. The only thing we truly know about the future is that it will be different. Michel argues that we need to build organizations that can cope with these challenges rather than embarking on disruptive change processes. To do this, leaders face the dilemma of empowering people without losing control."
