We support our clients in agile transformation and, as part of this, in the development and building of self-organized teams.

In the following EFS Agile Stories, we provide practical insights into the topic of agility in various facets and subject areas and how challenges in organizations can be successfully addressed by applying appropriate methods.

The start of agile self-organization

Basics of self-organization

New work: successfully mastering tomorrow’s challenges through self-organized structures 

Implementing self-organization as organizational structure is not difficult – and bears many advantages at the same time. Flexibility, efficiency, and speed are essential for modern organizations in today’s VUCA world. The realization that change is necessary and positive is the always the first step towards agility. 


Shared purpose

A shared purpose as a common point of orientation and key to personal identification with the organization.

A common point of reference brings self-organized teams of an agile organization even closer together. The “shared purpose” gives orientation both for the organization and for all its members during their daily work. EFS Consulting relies on creative workshops in inspiring environments to find the overarching shared purpose.


Moderator Coaching

Understanding and living fundamental values are both indispensable for self-organization

Self-organization requires practice and understanding just as much as good moderation. Therefore, it is even more important that moderators fulfill their role confidentlyEFS Consulting has developed an interactive workshop series – including quizzes and playful elements. Fun is the best way to learn.


Playing with roles

Swift decisions and an equal say through new meeting formats  

The meeting formats of self-organization are goal-oriented and efficient. Everybody can and should drive the organization forward, and within minutes new roles can be created. EFS Consulting supports self-organized teams through, for example, systematic moderation as Facilitator. 


Let's make the rules!

basics of self-organization constitution

A constitution as a binding document for internal rules

Whether in sports or in working life: the rules of the game should be followedIt is much easier when those rules are defined and formulated by yourself considering the individual spirit of your own organization. This successful example took us almost back in the days at school


Safe enough to try: self-organization

basics of self-organization roles & circles

More efficient and target-oriented cooperation due to clear role descriptions 

Not everyone can accept change easily, especially when, according to one´s own perception, there is no need for it. The “safe enough to try” approach offers the possibility of flexible, continuous, and immediate adaptation of changes. This makes it easier to take the next small step, even when it comes to new role definitions and accountabilities.

Basic Principles of Cooperation Transparency

Increased transparency to keep everyone on the same page and create a common understanding 

Self-organization requires initiative. At the same time, it every role is responsible to recognize potential for improvement for the entire organization and to approach these potentials proactively. Christian has done it perfectly and supported his entire team in his own project with a poster about transparency – and therefore ensured transparency.
