Mission teams: a different type of IT Organization? - with Daniel Seif | PAP#034

Which organization today still manages without IT? While IT is often the driver of change and therefore the priority in the change chain, it is often the last in the implementation process, i.e., only where things needed to be implemented and kept running.

Contorion's approach relies on so-called mission teams, which work cross-functional and completely independently on a business driver for a defined period of six months. To operate an efficient and successful business, it is necessary to take a holistic view of the company for each strategic component, which functions and works through all process chains.

Besides, Daniel Seif does not rely on classic hierarchical levels in his IT organization, but on the skills of individuals. It is an extreme form of traditional hierarchies. Sounds like the epitome of an agile organization, doesn't it?

In the new episode of the Project A Podcast, you can hear how all this works in interaction with the entire company, what challenges there are and how exactly it was implemented.
