Why the book is worth it?
This book is a must read for all future leaders who want to guide their organization on the agile journey. The book provides suggestions and background knowledge for all active and aspiring system designers: managers, HR employees and coaches will find everything they need to know on the topic of agile transformation.
In addition to the “true” definition of agility and aspects of leadership and corporate culture, you learn about Living Strategy, an approach to making strategy planning in your organization more agile. We show you how you can implement a strategy in an agile environment—preferably as a Living Strategy made possible by the Living Transformation® of the Agilizer® approach.
Rethinking the world of Strategy
The Living Strategy® is the best approach to align a company in a complex world with easy-to-understand tools, in a flexible way and without losing focus.
With the help of the Living Strategy, a company can adapt quickly and flexibly to its environment: Changes that affect business models are continuously taken into account, the company’s organization and processes are adapted in an evolutionary manner, and key elements such as vision, mission, and strategy are updated on a regular basis, if necessary. The work on and with the strategy comes in sprints.
The key element of the approach is the involvement of employees throughout the entire process. Other success factors are trust, transparency, the Maverick principle and encouraging positive thinking.

Live Change. This is how the organizational change succeeds.
Those who think they can simply copy the transformation of one organization to another, or those who want to plan change for their organization “by the book“, will quickly fail or succumb to the illusion of success.
An agile approach to the complex topic of “transformation” is promising. As an agile method, the Living Transformation® lives up to the principles of the Agile Manifesto because the focus is on individuals and their interactions with each other. This approach allows for responsiveness to change and relies on the cooperation of the involved and affected parties.
