Rigid hierarchies, organisational charts, ineffective processes - companies and institutions are still positioned as they were in the age of industrialisation. Today and tomorrow, in the age of digital transformation, in which linear processes no longer satisfactorily cover highly individualized customer and consumer demands, business models are turned upside down by disruptive developments. Speed, flexibility and adaptability are crucial, the old patterns no longer function. All companies and organisations of all sectors are facing this challenge and the pressure for fundamental change is overwhelming.
But what takes the place of the old organisation chart? Holacracy, Podularity, Scrum, network-based forms of organisation - there are numerous attempts. And then there is the slogan "agility", which means everything and says nothing.

In his lecture, Markus Baumann analyses the success and failure of self-governing organisational forms based on company examples. In doing so, he incorporates the experiences of fast-growing start-ups.

As CEO of company companions in Hamburg, Markus Baumann supports globally positioned medium-sized companies and non-profit organisations in strategically significant change projects in the areas of strategy and leadership. He is the initiator and shareholder of the sister company digital companions, which helps companies and organisations on their way to digitalisation.
Markus Baumanns is also a keynote speaker and teaches and trains regularly in the executive programme of the Harvard Business School, the Management School of the TU Munich and the Berlin Think Tank LEAD.
