Between old and new lies good

How we can shape a sustainable work culture with GOOD WORK without having to redo everything.

The author's approach is convincing: If the advocates of new work models did not question everything that already exists, employees might be more open to new work. Despite all the sympathy for agile working methods, it is the pragmatic view of the tried and tested that sets the book apart from similar literature. Without claiming to be scientific, it questions fashionable management buzzwords and focuses on the context. It depends on the context whether this or that trend in the working world really represents progress.
