View #1: Energize People

People are the most important parts of an organization and managers must do all they can to keep people active, creative and motivated.

View #2: Empower Teams

Teams can self-organize and this requires empowerment, authorization and trust from management.

View #3: Align Constraints

Self-organization can lead to anything and it’s therefore necessary to protect people and shared resources and to give people a clear purpose and defined goals.

View #4: Develop Competence

Teams cannot achieve these goals if team members aren’t capable enough and managers must therefore contribute to the development of competence.

View #6: Improve Everything
