    As we reflect back on our numerous struggles with making Agile Teams more efficient and operate like well-oiled machines, we are often overwhelmed with wondering how we didn’t learn the lessons faster or earlier.  Life is too short to learn from just our own mistakes – we have to learn from others’ mistakes as well.

    In this session, Dipesh will be drawing upon more than a decade of Agile experiences in multiple organizations across nine countries to share stories and challenges of transitioning into an Agile Leader, while also focusing on what we in the Agile community are struggling with most.

    There has been a lot written about techniques for creating great Agile teams.  Dipesh will take these theories a bit further, and look into how Leaders can build great teams, not by using a new method or management style, but rather by understanding their own Agile team dynamics and behaviour.  

    You will learn about the assumptions and challenges surrounding self-organizing Agile teams and how to build a stronger team of Servant Leaders.

    If you are a leader or an aspiring leader of an Agile team, this session will provide clear implications for where to focus your efforts so that you do not worry about the wrong things. You will be inspired by knowing how to establish trust within the teams that is required to embrace uncertainty and ambiguity while confidently making better decisions.

    Here’s a radical idea: Trust people to know best and let them decide which team they should work in. Let them Self-Select!
     
    Self-selection is the simplest, fastest and most efficient way to form stable teams, based on the belief that people are at their happiest and most productive if they can choose what they work on and who they work with.
     
    In October 2013, New Zealand’s largest eCommerce provider ran the biggest Self-Selection event in the world since WWII, using a process which has since been repeated many times in multiple locations across the world.
     
    In this presentation I will share my learnings and experiences from more than three years of running Self-Selection processes in large organisations. I will show you a repeatable process for how to establish efficient teams in growing organisations and we will answer questions such as “Why would I do that”? and “How can I convince management?”.
     
    If you work in an industry or company that involves teams then this talk is for you!
