Cohort-based Course

Team change is inevitable, prepare for it

Course overview

Why this course?

Your teams are going to change whether you like it or not - especially when your company is doubling in size or when it is shrinking. Your teams might grow bigger and split. Some people might leave and then your teams merge together. Priorities shift and people move off your team. A new product is getting developed and you need to form a new team. All of this "dynamic reteaming" can be a wild ride, and really challenging.

So how can you get better at it? How can you carve through the waves of change instead of getting knocked over by them? This is your survival kit.

Join me for an interactive experience to learn the key patterns, tools and tactics so that you can drive changes in teams, or deal better with the changes imposed on your teams. You'll hear inspiring stories. You'll get practical activities you can do with your teams immediately. And you'll also learn about antipatterns - what not to do.

This course is a companion to my book Dynamic Reteaming, 2nd edition, published by O'Reilly.
