Brave New Work: Are You Ready to Reinvent Your Organization?

Brave New Work

So, I went out on a limb and just picked up this on Audible in preparations for a road trip. It was a late night road trip, and honestly, I didn’t want the car ride to end. Brave New Work by Aaron Dignan outlines practical ideas on how organizations can “upgrade their organizational operating systems.”

He told some great stories and shared some fun insights. My favorite is the reference he uses to the Simple Sabotage Field Manual published in 1948 by what is now the CIA. In it, section 11 outlines “General Interference with Organizations and Production.” I’m not going to spoil it, but it and this book is a great read and reference for how leaders and coaches can help organizations through change.

My career journey has had me wearing many hats ranging from Systems Analyst to Programmer to IT Manager to Programmer to Director. Today, I work as a coach and instructor to the leadership and team members of organizations on their agility journey. I'm constantly practicing to be a good learner, aspiring to be an inspiring leader, and I'm constantly walking the line between pragmatism and conviction when it comes to the application of lean and agile principles and practices.

Matt’s purpose is simple, “I believe in working with teams to help them get better, learn, and be successful in building stuff while having fun.”

At the end of the day, Matt believes in integrity, hard work, curiosity, people, and faith.
