Presentation

We – one former manager in banking and one researcher in management control – share the conviction that agility is the ideal type management model for companies which operate under competition, dynamic contingencies and employ highly qualified employees. In our opinion the agile company is characterised by valuing:

  • Customers over owners
  • Trust over detailed monitoring
  • Intrinsic over extrinsic motivation
  • Adaptiveness over planning

These aspects and the advantages with agile companies are illustrated with examples from banking, especially Handelsbanken.
