Am Ende der Machbarkeit (When Achieving Ends)

Print and eBook (2018)

A situation is not as we would like it to be? Then we just need to do the right thing and actively change the situation to bring about an improvement. This is how „achievability“ can be described in a nutshell. The principle of „achievability“ or „doability“ is applied unquestioningly in practically all areas of our lives: in everyday life and in the area of personal development as well as in management or politics.

In many situations, this approach works very well. But „achievability“ has its limits. To name just one example: For more than 40 years we've been aware that we as a human race consume more resources than the earth can regenerate. Yet, despite all global efforts, nothing has changed. There are many different reasons for this. Unconscious basic assumptions about how the world works, the reduction of reality to a manageable level and looking for solutions exclusively on the outside are just three of them.

In this book, Thomas Tiller sets out in search of the mechanisms underlying the idea „achievability“ without discrediting achievability and without reducing the complexity of reality. Drawing on his own practical experience as a group facilitator and integral consultant, he offers various ways of experiencing and approaching the world around and within us.

„Am Ende der Machbarkeit“ is an invitation to explore oneself and search for the limits of achievability. A kind of travel guide through a world that many of us are only partially familiar with - a journey through the self.

Agile Moderation (Agile Facilitation)

eBook (2018)

Agile product development, agile project management, agile leadership, agile companies, and now agile facilitation? The agile approach is very popular at the moment. And of course, it was only a matter of time before customers would start to ask for agile facilitation of teams or groups. But what is agile facilitation anyway? This book addresses precisely this question.

The starting point of all of this was and is agile software and product development. The first part of the book is therefore a very brief introduction to agile product development. After discussing the differences between, and the similarities of agile approaches and classic facilitation, the book shows various ways of approaching the question of agile facilitation. The author presents an example of an agile facilitation method with the corresponding techniques.

The book is aimed at professionals working with groups on a daily basis and would like to convey an idea of what the term 'agile facilitation' means and how agile facilitation might work.
