In this article you will find a new model for leadership in the 21st century by Thomas Spielhofer and Siegfried Kaltenecker.
The authors present a model of how managers can lead agile organizations towards success, instead of being squeezed between anvil and hammer by their teams and their boards. This Agile Leadership Model (ALM) is the summary of our personal experience and of those whom we have coached, trained or otherwise worked with. It furthermore brings together the essence of what we learned in two years of research at the Platform of Agile Management – in which we have not yet found another model that we feel can fully cope with today’s leadership challenges.
Agile Leadership Model – An Overview
The ALM consists of four different layers, which build on each other:
- Results (green items)
- Core Competencies (yellow items)
- Basic Skills (blue items)
- Common Principles (red items)
