Self-Selection: An Agile Approach to Forming Teams @ Scale

Agile Israel 2017 Conference, Tuesday, June 20, 2017, 14:00

When it comes to shaping agile teams many organisations use a leader decides model. The design of the teams is often a very delicate balancing act. Skills, experience, subject matter expertise and personalities all need to be factored in and the end result is often less than ideal. So what if we took a different approach? What if we let the people who are going to be in the teams decide for themselves which mix of skills, experience, subject matters expertise and personalities are going to work best?  In this session you will learn how Sandy Mamoli & David Mole's approach to self-selection (aka Squadification) has been used at one of Australia's largest banks to empower people to choose who they work with.  This warts and all tale from the trenches will arm you to attempt your own self-secretion workshop, using proven techniques that have even been applied as part of launching a SAFe Agile Release Train.
