Self Organization & Team Success
hen stuck on a challenging problem, is it better to have one person thinking through the issue, or a team of people working together to solve the issue at hand? If you are looking for speed in conjunction with the highest potential for success, the team wins hands down. Self-organized teams are about empowering those that do the work to decide how the work gets done, what to work on, and how to break through any challenges that may arise. Shifting the focus to support autonomy allows for an increase in output speed, as well as an increase in the usability of what is produced. This session gets to the heart of the dynamics that drive self-organization. You cannot just throw the team together and hope for the best. There is a “contract” that needs to be established between the team and leadership. We will discuss the elements of that “contract,” the responsibilities of all the parties involved, and the problems faced when actualizing. Are you are looking to speed up completion of project work while maintaining quality and efficiently matching output to need? Self-organization is the tool you need to achieve those goals, and this seminar will help you plan your workplace transition correctly. You will learn: The drives behind the need for self-organization. Best structure of self-organization teams.
