Abstract:
The famous manifesto says we should
"Build projects around motivated individuals.
Give them the environment and support they need,
and trust them to get the job done."
Sometimes, these people are referred to as a self-organized team.
Self-organizing, as a term drawn from science, means some pretty clear things in the world of nature. But we don’t have mathematical models of how self-organizing works in teams. Is it a metaphor? What actually happens when a team self-organizes? What do we do that either encourages or discourages it?
And what do you do when the team hasn't self-organized in a way you like? Does self-organizing guarantee success? What do you do to help a team self-organize into something productive rather than, say, a dysfunctional family?
This session is a place for us to explore these and other questions, together. Let’s see if we can come up with some more concrete and practical ways to understand the idea of self-organized teams.
