There are enormous benefits of autonomous, self-organising teams who are empowered and trusted to build the right thing, the right way.

Despite this, they simply don’t exist in most companies.

During this hands on workshop we will collectively tackle this problem and identify a bunch of approaches and changes you can take back to your work.

I’ll start with a brief intro to the main aspects and complexities of the problem, and reasons why we don’t see happy teams all over the place. I’ll then provide participants with information and options to consider to make progress fighting this challenging problem.

Focussing on your actual workplace environment, we will collectively workshop how to roll out changes to unlock the “awesome” in your teams.
