Experience

Hello, I’m Michael Herman. Thanks for visiting. I hope you’re finding something useful here.

I’ve been inviting agility and high performance, with clients and colleagues on six continents, since 1991. I’ve been sharing my learning and resources online since 1998. The “Inviting Organization” I wrote about more than twenty years ago is emerging everywhere today as “Enterprise Agility.”


I was the rare Outward Bound instructor with an MBA in Finance from a top-tier program. Since then, I’ve become a recognized teacher and facilitator of Open Space and a Team and Enterprise Agility coach – an innovative thought leader in organization development and agile practice. My work has been a wide-ranging exploration and rigorous pursuit of better ways of organizing ourselves for work.

Inviting Agility is my distillation of some of the most powerful, time-tested practices that are transforming organizations everywhere. Why Invite Agility?

I support leaders and champions, innovators and learners, disrupters and transformers. Please have a look around – and contact me if you think we might have something to talk about or do together.
