Workshop - How good is your team?  How do you know?

The speed and complexity of work now requires a new approach to getting work done. Teams are a critical productivity unit for organisations in managing an everchanging VUCA world.  Unfortunately, in many organisations it is easy for teams to be average. For example, an agile team’s focus on process and speed and inattention to the behavioural and relational aspects of working together may mean a constant struggle to establish psychological safety in their team.  Or their tight internal focus gets in the way of understanding the changing world of the customer. At an enterprise level teams of teams need to be aligned for the beneficial value of their key stakeholders and the wider system at play.

Regardless of what your team is set up to do, and what tools they use, there are some critical elements that if put in place early will accelerate their performance and value they are creating.

This interactive workshop will outline the mix of science and pragmatism that is needed for helping managers and their organisations to take a comprehensive and coordinated approach to improving team performance.
