For our August 9th meeting, ValPak will be hosting the next Tampa Bay Agile meetup. Peter Saddington from Agile Scout (agilescout.com) has graciously agreed to give a talk on the following...
"The New Role of Management in Building and Sustaining High-Performance Teams"
There has been a ton written about management techniques for creating great teams. Let's go a bit further, and look into how managers can build great teams not by using a new method or management style, but rather understanding team dynamics and behavioral science and patterns.
- What is a High-Performance Team?
- Self-Organization - Not what you think?
- New Role of Management
- Behavioral Science
