Organizations today face a crisis. The crisis is of long standing and its signs are widespread. Most proposals for improving management address one element of the crisis at the expense of the others. The principles described by awardâ€“winning author Stephen Denning simultaneously inspire high productivity, continuous innovation, deep job satisfaction and client delight. Denning puts forward a fundamentally different approach to management, with seven interâ€“locking principles of continuous innovation: focusing the entire organization on delighting clients; working in selfâ€“organizing teams; operating in clientâ€“driven iterations; delivering value to clients with each iteration; fostering radical transparency; nurturing continuous selfâ€“improvement and communicating interactively. In sum, the principles comprise a new mental model of management.
