Abstract:
When your team compositions change it doesn't mean you're doing it wrong - it could be the secret to your success. Changing teams can help reduce the risk of attrition, learning & career stagnation, and the development of knowledge silos. I'll share original case studies from well known companies that enable dynamic change to their teams propelled by retrospectives and other agile, humanistic practices. In this talk, you'll learn tips and tricks for building a sustainable company by changing teams - whether it's by growing and splitting teams, merging teams, seeding teams, adding new people across multiple teams and more. I'll also share reteaming antipatterns and what not to do.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Learn why changing teams and roles can help you retain team members and avoid learning & career stagnation.
  • Understand how reteaming helps you build a sustainable company by spreading critical information across your teams and encouraging the retention of knowledge inside your company.
  • Learn how to reteam, including how and when to split teams, merge teams, strategies for managing high growth and doubling of teams, rotating team members & beneficial siloing of teams.
  • Hear about reteaming antipatterns - what not to do and why.
  • Find out the deliberate community building and interpersonal practices you can do in your company to facilitate and amplify reteaming.
  • It's inevitable: people come and go from your company. Get good at reteaming!
