The Agile Manifesto states, “The best…emerge from self-organizing teams.”
In this talk, Allan Ryan, Executive Director of Hargraves, will showcase new tools that empower teams to self-organise, develop trust and collaborate face-to-face and virtually. Importantly, he will explore DIY approaches that we can all undertake to improve our performance and growth.
Attendees will experience and learn:
You are the most important person. Learn how to improve your own performance and growth with DIY tools.
Teams are the engine room of the modern workplace. Experience the collaboration game, Collaborizza, and how you can improve team performance.
Modern workplaces are digital. Prioritise what is important for you and your workplace with the SOAR Modern Workplace canvas.
Everyone has customers and stakeholders. Explore your collaboration direction with a four step compass: North star, Enablers, Walls/barriers and Stakeholders.
