Hacking Management, Changing the World
Jurgen Appelo is a writer, thinker, and change-maker who is on a one-man crusade to make organizations more agile, innovative, and human. He’s also a virtuoso when it comes to turning new organizing principles into radically practical, highly doable practices on the ground.
Jurgen writes a popular blog at www.noop.nl, covering the creative economy, agile management, and personal development. He is the author of the books Management 3.0 and the Management 3.0 Workout—which lay out a vision for agile organizations and management and offer up a rich portfolio of concrete and eminently doable management hacks.
He also wrote a little book called How to Change the World, which offers up a “supermodel” for change-making.
Join us for a maverick hangout with Jurgen on creating durable, meaningful change—plus a short course in how to hack.
We’ll tackle such questions as:
*How do we change the way we change? How do you achieve deep change without having to go through a crisis? How do you craft an authentic and participative approach to change?
*What does it mean to be an “agile” leader or an “agile” organization today?
*How do you start from where you are? What’s your advice to aspiring management hackers who may not have power, position, or a budget?
*And we’ll go on a deep dive into Jurgen’s portfolio of clever, high-impact hacks for reinventing performance reviews and rewards, the traditional job and career path, and strategies for engagement, teamwork, and collaboration.

Meet the hacker-entrepreneurs from Enspiral—a vibrant laboratory for inventing new models of organizing, managing, and leading.
What if our organizations were as human as the human beings who work inside them? Heiko Fischer has been working at the frontlines of that question for years—first inside a range of organizations and now as the “Chief Resourceful Human” leading a movement to create “100% Democratic Entrepreneurship, 0% Bureaucracy” in every kind of organization. Watch this lively conversation about hacking HR and minimum dose management.
It’s the most universal and intractable challenge leaders in organizations of every stripe in every realm of endeavor face: how do you spread success? How do you take local victories—profound insights, clever inventions, powerful connections—and weave them into the broader fabric of an organization?
When it comes to building management and business models that are fit for the 21st century, one of the fundamental challenges is developing organizations that are capable of discovering, nurturing, aggregating, and appropriately rewarding contributions from employees, customers, suppliers, and other stakeholders across boundaries.
