What Management 3.0
is About

There are a lot of management models and theories out there and they all sound great. The problem is that there’s a lot of theory, which we don’t always know how to implement in practical terms. For example, what can you do concretely on a Tuesday afternoon to work better with your colleagues?

People need actionable advice, things they can start doing next week. That’s where Management 3.0 comes in. 

Leadership Workshops and Practices

Management 3.0 follows the systems thinking idea that 95 percent of the performance of an organization is the result of the whole system, not the individual. Management 3.0 examines how to analyze that system to come up with the right solutions for better and effective leadership across organizations.

Management 3.0 is not another framework, it’s a mindset, combined with an ever-changing collection of games, tools, and practices to help any worker manage the organization. It’s a way of looking at work systems.

Doing Agile – Being Agile
Management 3.0 is a mindset

Leadership pursues the goal of growing and transforming organizations, which are great places to work for. They care about having engaged employees because when this happens the work is improved and clients are happy. We’ve realized that almost every industry is ripe for change and ready for a new view on management. Management 3.0 is that future of management.

Management 3.0 is redefining the definition of leadership with management as a group responsibility.

It’s about working together to find the most efficient way for a business to achieve its goals while maintaining the happiness of workers as a priority.

Management 3.0 is a global management revolution that brings together thousands of project managers, mid-level managers, CEOs and entrepreneurs, developing solutions together, using games to encourage employee feedback and team collaboration.

With many leaders working in the huge company I work in, I see a great opportunity to make a difference here. However, being “only” Scrum Master, I am excluded from the trainings and coaching programs for leaders. Hereby I see the opportunity to develop more helpful leaders again.

In leadership trainings, we usually talk on a meta-level. That’s important and that’s good. However, what is often missing are practical tools to connect with practice.

The story of Management 3.0

In 2010, Management 3.0 started first as a best-selling agile management book by leadership guru Jurgen Appelo. Then, in 2016, Jurgen released Managing for Happiness

These two successful, proactive management and effective leadership books have been turned into a hands-on Management 3.0 Foundation Workshop, the first workshop format, followed by several new workshops. Those leadership trainings enable each team member to set out on a path to success and purpose, because small moves smartly made can set big things in motion. 

Management 3.0 is about actionable leadership. Everything we do includes proactive leadership games and exercises to apply with your team immediately. Take some of them for a test drive today!

Most importantly: You will learn how work doesn’t have to feel like work, but more like enjoying the good life.

It has the right mix of examples, theory, and games. Convincing and authentic.
