Designing High-Performance into our Organisations: What can ScrumMasters, managers and other leaders do to help every team to excel?


My talk this year will focus on Radical Management’s principle number 2: a shift in the role of the manager from a controller to an enabler of self-organizing teams.

It will include:
– what is a high-performance team?
– the key factors for high-performance teams
– organisational design principles for high-performance teams
– what leaders should do to help create an environment in which every team can become a high-performance team

The talk will be aimed at ScrumMasters, coaches and managers in organisations that have already or are considering adopting Agile.
