Do your coders shy away from testing? Are your leaders or teams struggling to embrace the concept of “T-shaped” individuals? Would you like to demonstrate the impact of collaboration with evidence, and have fun along the way? What many teams initially think collaboration is, really amounts to cooperation. - doing a little more if there’s time left in an iteration. This hands on session will demonstrate the outcomes possible when teams shift fully into collaboration. Through 3 sprints of a simulated product development, participants will get a tangible feel for the differences between coordination, cooperation and deeper cross functional collaboration. They’ll see where bottlenecks really exist when team members stick to their competency AND the impact when they focus instead on the shared goal or outcome. We’ll explore what’s holding back collaboration in our own work teams, and what changes teams can make to foster greater collaboration and higher performance. Come see first hand the impact of collaboration towards a shared goal, and get a sense of how you can Harness your Hive towards higher performance, interactivity and fun.



Participants will:

  • Discover structural and behavioral bottlenecks to collaboration *Demonstrate the impact of differences between coordination, cooperation, and true collaboration
  • Distinguish what your own work teams could start, stop or change to shift towards greater collaboration
  • Choose and share at least one idea from the workshop experience which you'll apply in your "real world" beyond the session bubble
