In dieser Episode begrüßen wir erneut Andreas Wittler zu Gast, unser Gesprächspartner aus Episode 22. Andreas ist Agile Coach und Enterprise Transformation Coach, sowie praktizierender Scrum Master. In dieser zweiten Runde haben wir mit Andreas über Kontrolle im Unternehmen gesprochen. Kontrolle ist im unternehmerischen Kontext nach wie vor ein sehr komplexes und auch emotionsgeladenes Thema. Andreas befasst sich in seiner Tätigkeit als Coach täglich damit, Unternehmen und Organisationen in eine agile Denk- und Handlungsweise zu begleiten - und gleichzeitig das allgemeine Bedürfnis nach Sicherheit und Mitarbeiterkontrolle in dieses System einzubeziehen. Weshalb ist Kontrolle ein essentieller Bestandteil im unternehmerischen Alltag und scheint gleichzeitig Grund für schlechte Performance und Stress auf der Arbeit zu sein? Wir haben uns darüber unterhalten, ob Vertrauen wirklich gut und Kontrolle besser sind.
