High performance depends on the self-organizing capability of teams. Understanding how this works and how to avoid destroying self-organization is a challenge. Until you understand complex adaptive systems and how Toyota works it is difficult to improve team velocity. Jeff will discuss three core topics:
1. Shock therapy as a strategy for booting up teams.
2. The Cosmic Stopping Problem, otherwise known as the choice uncertainty principle.
3. Punctuated equilibrium - how software systems evolve
Take advantage of these concepts and you may find a way to achieve the ultimate potential of a team. This session will be a "Deep Agile" presentation keying off topics presented to engineers at MIT.
