Abstract [en]

The aim of this chapter is to describe interventions that middle managers make when they strive, as technology leaders, to bridge intra-organizational boundaries in order to support new agile ways of working. Another aim is to discuss how these interventions may be understood as pedagogic interventions.By using qualitative methods in a case study approach concerning the software communication industry, the findings reveal interventions that focused on alignment through collaboration, interdependency, flexibility, and communication. These kinds of interventions are regarded here as an example of pedagogic managerial leadership. Managers take on development and learning as main collective work tasks because they want to influence knowledge creation and are aware of thelearning dimension of their work tasks.
