GUIDE TO MANAGE THE FUNDAMENTALS OF AGILE MANAGEMENT


Principle Nr 1 for agile business management requires to recognize the business as ecosystem

The delta-T cockpit manages the business ecosystem by the list of people, who manage the flow in the ecosystem. 

The delta-T Cockpit enforces and advises to apply the following rules: 

1.Recognize each user as a member of the ecosystem´s community

This rule is hard-coded.

Being recognized as a member in this view is a prerequisite for any responsibility in agile business management - like being accountable for a unit, a goal, an operational plan or an obligation.

2.Recognize the home element

The home element of the ecosystem, where the user contributes must be logged

3.Recognize the function in the ecosystem

The company function by which the user contributes to the network,

4.Recognize the role in the delta-T Cockpit

The role in which a user interacts with the delta-T Cockpit – like owners of obligations, unit managers for leaders of revenue generating units, unit project manager for users who assist their UMs to lead their business agility, or executives with the right to view action in all units.


Principle Nr 2 for agile business management requires to focus the entire business on one single goal 

To guide this focus the delta-t cockpit enforces the following four rules

Display the goal in dominant position

To draw attention to it, the delta-t cockpit displays the goal on the home screen in dominant position.

Display the goal to all users

All users see the goal chart

Make goal chart configurable to user personal needs

Even if all users get the goal chart displayed, they may configure it to their needs. Users may select: year to date, monthly, quarterly or annual display.

Only display the prime goal

To enforce focus, the delta-t cockpit displays only one single goal – no other KPIs.

Other goals are of relevance only, if they are necessary conditions for that goal. In that case the delta-T Cockpit displays these as such, in the framework of the operational plan.

Principle number 3 requires to give priority to revenue generating units.

To identify such units, the delta-t cockpit logs them in its list of units with the detailed information required for agile business management. 

Each such unit:

1.Is logged in the table of units

2.Is configured separately: Has its own identity in the delta-t cockpit

3.Has its own goal: The delta-t Cockpit links all unit goals to the top-level company goal. A hard-coded function.

4.Has its own operational plan: The delta-t cockpit assigns a placeholder for that plan automatically. A hard-coded function.

5.Has an owner assigned: a line manager responsible for leading the unit to its goal and developing and executing this plan. A hard-coded function. It is mandatory to assign an owner when configuring a unit.

6.May optionally assign a unit project manager: assisting the unit community in using the delta-t cockpit for agile business
