Agile Organizational Development

Shaping the work of the future together

The Covid Crisis has changed the world of work. Speed, flexibility and effective collaboration are more critical than ever. Agile organizations demonstrate adaptability and resilience in the face of new challenges.

We completed our agile transformation in 2018, and this step is paying off in a major way in the current pandemic. We transformed the experience gained in our own transition and in customer projects into hands-on agility services for our customers.

We actually do
what others only talk about

For 30 years, metafinanz conformed with the traditional hierarchical business structure. Then we made a complete turnaround. Today, we manage our business in a distributed manner. We also abolished plans and budgets and have redefined our leadership.

In short, we created a fundamentally new vision of organization that relies on entrepreneurship and self-organization. The resulting short decision-making channels have made us faster, more flexible and brought us even closer to our customers.

Changeland

We documented our own transformation. Initially, this was intended for internal use only. However, due to popular demand, we made the clips available on our website:

I’m a Bavarian with a global mindset, a grown child bursting with tech affinity, and a compassionate humanitarian. Loyal, passionate, curious, open, playful and empathetic. Drawing on my expertise in the fields of innovation and digitization, I inspire, connect and empower people and organizations in their transformation initiatives as a keynote speaker, workshop facilitator, guide and coach.

#Kulturwandler #Organisationsbeweger

I am an explorer and scientist! I habitually leave my comfort zone to broaden my horizon and to acquire new strategies for action. I am an inquisitive person driven by the desire to understand people, their needs, values and beliefs. Cultures and values inspire me. This is why the entire world is my home. My travels have taken me across the globe. I worked as a tomato farmer in Ecuador, as a zoo keeper in Peru and as a Master’s student in Cambridge (UK). With all the people I meet along the way, I always strive to see their unique personality and aim to “decipher” their behavior and motives for action in order to establish an inspiring dialog.

#Achtsamkeit #Klimawandler

From my own experience, I have learned what change means and what skills it takes to master it successfully. I am convinced that holistic health will be the key to success and to the way work will be organized in the future. My vision is to connect the things that shape the future of work – leadership, transformation and health. Towards this end, I accompany people and organizations as a reflective coach, passionate athlete, experienced leader and as an authentic, mindful and professional companion.

Thomas Resch

#HRevoluzzer #NewWorker

What is my vision? To help create organizations that put people first. I contribute to shaping the future of work as an agility coach who inspires, trains and makes transformation happen. I used to be an “HR guy” for many years. Back then, I managed processes and systems. Today, I am convinced that it is time for HR to focus more strongly on the human factor. It’s high time to break down outdated, rigid structures and to empower people to solve complex problems in dynamic times. In my view, HR stands for Human Revolution today.

#AgileTransformer #Andersmacher

I am Michael. Family man, loyal, down-to-earth, ambitious and full of drive. I turn this drive into forward momentum, such as going on a non-stop bicycle trip across the USA. Before joining metafinanz, I was a manager at a very traditional company. Ever since coming here in 2015, my view of organizations, and ultimately even my career, has fundamentally changed. I supported and shaped the transformation of metafinanz into an agile organization from day one, taking on a broad set of roles throughout this process. I now work as an organizational consultant and agility coach. I assist companies in rethinking the concept of work, questioning established modes of operation and finding new solutions for the future of work.

#NewWorkStrategist #DigitalPioneer

I hold a degree in design and communication strategy, so I know the ins and outs of how to shape physical and mental spaces. I am an inquisitive person who always questions established structures and the status quo. I am an agile native and appreciate being part of a learning organization like metafinanz. In my work as an organizational developer and agility coach, I guide people to discover and shape new worlds of work. My tailor-made workshops and coaching sessions inspire participants to take the next step on their personal learning journey. I know how to apply small details to the big picture to bring about iterative change that culminates in a holistically agile organization.

#Mutmacher #GechangterManager

For me, agile change in companies and society is a means of actively shaping the future. Leadership gives meaning and significance to this change and creates an environment where responsibility is shared. As a coach and trainer, I guide companies through the process of making cultural change happen. I encourage teams and leaders on their way into the agile world. I held management and leadership positions for over 15 years. After I experienced the shift to an agile organization first hand, I ended my management career to work holistically as an agility and transformation coach.
