Every organization expects its teams to produce value, and convey other business benefits. But what is the best fit "Agile" for your team, as it moves through a VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex, ambiguous) world? What does it take for a group of humans (programmers, testers, product managers, etc.) to make the shift from individual contributors to team mates? To form a team and to collaborate? How do you make good on the benefits the your business (and customers) need?
In this session, Diana Larsen and Bonnie Aumann will answer those questions and others. We'll consider teams as complex adaptive human systems. We'll examine the behaviors and practices that form patterns of effective collaboration. We will explore the ways that teams move into and through fluent proficiency using the lenses of group coherence, coaching, value creation, and other needs in the first zone of the Agile Fluency™ Model. We will inspect ways to adapt to new conditions and team changes over time. Join us!

Learning Outcomes:
  • Participants will:
  • Deepen understanding of complex adaptive systems and how humans form systems
  • Gain language for discussing complexity and team coherence
  • Examine behaviors for effective team collaboration
  • Review the Agile Fluency Model and the role of practice fluency in teamwork
  • Apply these concepts to their "home" teams
