Chapter 54. Change Agents > Capable Colleagues

Capable Colleagues

Not all companies have an organization shaped like the Transamerica Building. In today's flattened hierarchies—where many development groups are open, informal, and highly collaborative—corporate mandates won't cut it. Used to working things out on their own in close-knit project teams, developers in such groups will want to plan and carry out improvement initiatives for themselves. The most effective agents of change in these settings are often highly respected colleagues who may function as informal internal consultants to people in the same or other project teams. They wield influence through their skills and expertise more than through their position or power, acting more as facilitators for discussions and catalysts for strategic redirection than as official sponsors or leaders.
