Facilitating Team Decisions


One of the agile manifesto principles is “Build projects around motivated individuals. Give them the environment and support they need, and trust them to get the job done.” Tricia Broderick wishes this principle was written to say, motivated teams. Because leaders giving the environment and support for individuals to make team decisions is anything but trivial. Achieving effective decisions goes beyond bringing people together for consensus. This approach may lead to groupthink or repeating decision meetings. Instead, leaders facilitate collaboration by building and tapping into the co-intelligence of the entire team. In this deep dive session, discover and examine a framework that creates the environment for participatory decision-making. Expect to walk away with an approach and tools that help level up the teams' performance.
