The Agile name is now more than 10 years old. I still like it, for software developers. But it seems most managers don’t like applying it to themselves. Sure, we can try to call them by that name, but most will ignore it. Many managers like other names. Like Lean. And Leadership. And MBA. But I don’t like those names. They give me bad associations. And so my question is, what other name could modern managers in the 21st century select to call themselves?
What name represents proper management?
I don't think it's "manager" because nobody seems to like that name either. If you are a modern manager, empowering people and improving continuously, while delivering value to stakeholders, what name would you select for yourself?
