The future of work requires more self-management. But radical models do not fit in many contexts

Many managers and HR professionals are convinced that the future of work requires more self-management in organizations, in order to boost empowerment, motivation, and ownership. However, making significant progress in the direction of self-management without committing to radical “all-or-nothing” organizational models requires a concrete working methodology that is responsive to an organization’s specific context, means, and ambitions.


Moving towards self-organization requires thought-through designs with broad stakeholder buy-in

This Kit gives you the research-based working methodology to get self-management right in your organization and to productively engage and commit stakeholders in that journey. You will be able to have meaningful and concrete discussions on how far to decentralize your management functions, as well as guidance, workshop agendas, and how-to approaches to drive the process.

Start experimenting and making decisions about increased decentralization and self-management with confidence, using tools based on analysis and expertise. Become a thought leader without committing to the hype of the latest management fad. Run impactful working sessions with your teams and business partners. Get tailored expert advice in your personal online coaching session. Build and implement an organizational model that fits your context while drawing on best practices.


This Kit is for you

  • if you want to support your stakeholders and partners moving toward self-management in a productive and thought-through way
  • if you’re looking for a practical, step-wise, and well-founded approach to promote decentralization in key management functions
  • if you want alternatives to the hyperbolic promises of radical “all-or-nothing” organizational models
“Our workshop with Management Kits provided crucial insights for our in-house approach to self-organization and helped us to define our design priorities and work plan going forward.”
Daniel Meier, Chief Human Resources Officer, SV Group
“Management Kits allowed us to do a deep-dive right from the first session. We were able to define our purpose and goals better and build a solid foundation for our work going forward.”

Working with this Kit, you can facilitate a full project or project sequence on organization design and increasing self-management.

Specific deliverables you can work towards using resources and tools from this Kit include:

  • A detailed description of your organization’s key management functions as a basis for defining the respective levels of self-management granted to a specific team or role.
  • A project or project work stream plan for your work on self-organization, including defining a series of activities, workshops, and deliverables, as a basis for onboarding stakeholders or team members on the topic.
  • Detailed workshop agendas including topics, timing, roles, and resources, leveraging exemplary agendas, including workshop activities and deliverables leveraging the different tools.
  • A clear definition of the goals and the scope of your work on self-managing organizations, as well as guidance on leading an organizational conversation with key stakeholders on the topic.
  • The basis for a customized facilitator guide, leveraging the Kit’s framework section, the practical experience captured in the “tips and tricks”, and the exemplary meeting agendas and tools.

These deliverables give you the means to design an innovative organization and drive the process of organizational change by engaging key stakeholders.


Benefit from an 1h expert coaching session to discuss any specifics of your case and get personal guidance on how to move forward (included in the subscription).

Which theories, frameworks or methodologies are used to create Management Kits?

In terms of theoretical and methodological background, there are three pillars that are particularly important to us at Management Kits: For all our Kits, we first make sure that our content is aligned with key insights from management research in the respective field. This often entails a significant amount of translation work to make the Kits user-friendly and actionable in a practical environment. Second, there is practical project work, consulting experience, and user testing that goes into the Kit design. Third, we believe in the relevance of design thinking methodologies for management problem-solving and we integrate approaches in our Kit design work accordingly.

Is the Kit really actionable and hands-on?

That's the whole idea! We want to empower you to start working on your specific challenges right away. We support you throughout your journey, deploying the tools, and running your work sessions.

What is the difficulty level of the Kit?

Our Kits are designed to accommodate users of all experience levels. The Kit structure allows you to access exactly what is most relevant for you, for example only the tools or know-how sections. Even those well-versed in organizational design will find a significant number of the Kit’s resources useful. For users just getting acquainted with the field of work, the Kit provides resources and background to combine learning and capability-building with relevant activities to start your management challenge without unnecessary delay.

Do you update the Kit?

Building an effective organization is never finished. The same applies to our Kits.

Our Kits contain state-of-the-art management knowledge and tools. We continuously update the Kits, extending the library of use cases and user experiences, and adding new or revising existing tools and workshops. Most of these updates stem from user experiences in working with our Kits. Together, we ensure constant development of best practices.

How does the free expert coaching session work?
A free expert coaching session (1 hour, online) to kickstart your work with the Kit is included in the subscription. How you use this time with our expert is largely up to you.
Most Management Kits users typically benefit most from one of three options:
  1. We use the time to give you a general walkthrough of the Management Kits resources
  2. We discuss the general situation you are in, including some of the challenges and transitions the organization you work with is facing, and we subsequently compile a tailored guide to some of the tools and materials that are likely most effective in your situation.
  3. We focus the discussion on a specific organizational project or leadership development challenge of yours and look at how to best leverage the Kits to address this challenge.
What if I have additional questions applying the Kit to my specific context?

There is a comment section in each part of the Kit. You can use it to ask questions or also share your feedback with us. We will make sure to answer all our users’ questions in due course.
