- Use frameworks with focus on value creation according your own purpose, your ‘why’. As examples she mentions Scrum, Kanban, Scaled Agile, DevOps,…
- Dare to adapt your organization structure and governance to enable a healthy balance between structure and selforganisation. Examples here are Sociocracy 3.0 and Team Topologies.
