We create organizational structures and processes in order to make better decisions. Having lived with the complex bureaucratic systems in companies for decades, many businesses have started to experiment with delegating the decision making power to lower levels of the hierarchy and are therefore creating more flat governance structures.

We expand our business to new locations to reduce cost and deliver value to customers faster and more efficiently and also benefit from new markets. Having distributed organizations introduces a new set of challenges to how we communicate and work together. Many companies create new structures and processes to address these challenges.

We chose to create software in an agile way in order to build software incrementally and deliver value to the customers in every iteration instead of all at once at the end of a project. Agile software development requires a mindset that promotes servant leadership, self- organizing teams and collaborative organizations. Many companies find it challenging to create the management structure that supports an agile way of working especially when the organization is geographically distributed.

  • How can you in your current role influence your organization to become agile while being geographically distributed?

  • How can you benefit from the distributed organization instead of finding ways to avoid or fight it?

  • How can you create a more collaborative governance in your corner of the business?

  • How can you form a group of influencers inside the organization to drive this change in governance throughout the entire company?
