A presentation by Manoj Vadakkan.- We talk a lot about the power of People and Interactions over Processes and Tools and Self Organization in Agile. Why is it that some teams work together and create real value for their organizations while others flounder on the waves of indifference and disengagement? In a word Leadership! Not all teams can be great but even those with the potential can not be great in a vacuum. In the book Leading Teams, Richard Hackman lays out five characteristics and conditions that must be present to foster great teams. In this interactive workshop participants will learn those characteristics and conditions and start to build the tools to assess if these conditions exist. They will also explore strategies for helping Leaders create the conditions for success.
