When Empowering Thought Is the Product

Interview in Börsen-Zeitun (No. 142, page 9)

Specifically, he discusses the traits of agile work—adaptable, flexible, responsive, multi-inputted, and solution-seeking through rapid prototyping and assessment—and how they dovetail with the practical characteristics of a matrix organization's multilinear management structure in terms of manager liability and personnel retention issues.
