Squads

Unlocking potential!

To unlock the full potential of our organisation, we have decided to introduce “agile” management processes to DJW! In small, powerful teams (“squads”), we are working on various topics.

DJW is characterized by its lean structures and flexibility. To unlock the full potential of our organisation, we have decided to introduce “agile” management processes to DJW! In small, powerful teams (“squads”), we are working on various topics.

The squads set their own goals, which they work towards within a predefined timeframe. They include fulltime and voluntary team members (at least one board member, one full-time DJW staff as well as dedicated members). In contrast to traditional teams, hierarchies are set aside and squad members are free to act more or less independently of others (“autonomy”), as long as it is in accordance with the wider objectives and guidelines of DJW (“alignment”). In this way, we are able to quickly react to the latest trends and developments.

The squads generally use English as their working language and organize virtual or in-person meetings by themselves (regular, but well-focused, approx. once every quarter). 

Topics:

Growth:

  • New Members Japan (driven forward by our Japan Rep Office)
  • New Members Germany 
  • Startups (not yet in action)
  • Rep Office Japan ("mission completed")

Services:

  • Executive Lounge 
  • Career Services
  • Networking Hub (in the course of formation)
  • Digital Symposium (driven forward by the management)

Marketing:

  • Communication 
  • Economic Policy (not yet in action)
