Lateral management

Lead, decide, work together: Why lateral management is the answer to the digitization of the economy

In the coming years, digitalization will change the economy and society just as dramatically as electrification did a hundred years ago - with far-reaching consequences for companies, managers and people. Many simple tasks are already performed by machines today. Digitization is not only changing production, but also products, sales structures, marketing and markets. It changes the way we work and how we live. While leadership and collaboration were organized hierarchically in the 20th century, the digital future will be shaped by lateral management - through leadership at eye level.

Roland Geschwill and Martina Nieswandt analyze what this can mean for us and our working world in the future, but also show what opportunities the process of digitization offers companies, people and managers: the chance for more freedom, more individuality, more exciting jobs, more creativity and more innovative strength. The second edition has been completely revised and expanded.
