A flat organisation enables fast speed of innovation
An agile coach helps build a less hierarchical, flatter organisation, leading to self-managing teams and individuals. Self-management gives people freedom and responsibility for their areas of expertise, which, in the best case, leads to empowered employees who enjoy coming to work.
A more traditional hierarchy and multiple levels of management complicate quick decision-making when customers' demands change or something unexpected happens in the business environment. In a flat organisation, the speed of innovation and course corrections happen swiftly.
Many business people say that software has caused so many innovations that “software eats the world.” But it is not software that is eating the world. Software companies are only a small fraction of the first companies to become agile and achieve rapid release. It is Agile that is eating the world. - Joe Justice
