Agile 2018: T-minus 10… 9… 8… We have Lift-off!

Angie Doyle (Linkedin | Twitter) and I were selected to present at Agile2018 this year in San Diego. Our workshop focussed on effectively lifting off (or forming) high performance teams.

Why is team lift-off important?

We believe in the power of aligning teams upfront through conversation – ensuring that we are focussed on creating an intentional team culture from the very beginning. These techniques can also be used as stand alone techniques in retrospectives or shorter workshops.

How do you use this with your teams?

We encourage you to use these techniques with your team and have included all the material we have designed below.

Downloadables:

 

  • Do it yourself Values Game: 
    • We used the Big Values List from Management 3.0 which can be found here
    • We created an Atmosphere Poster, download the PDF here.

 

  • The All You Need Is… Card Game: 
    • We created a card game, you can download the PDF cards here (print and cut to business card size).
    • Full list of needs from the Centre for Nonviolent Communication Needs Inventory can be found here
    • Needs “story card” template, you can download here.

 

  • SMARTER Canvas
