Chapter 6: The agile organization: the fall of the traditional pillars (part II: task design and allocation)
Open access

In this chapter we use the label "agile" in broad terms to discuss organizations with characteristics such as holacracies (Zappos), communities (Linux, Patient Innovation), agile organizations (Spotify, ING), different organizational forms that aim to cure the "disease of hierarchy" (Moffett et al. 2021, p.61). Agile organizing refers to the use of new organizational technologies to create new value for customers. This will imply creative ways of managing – sometimes radically new ways of managing.
