Topic:  Decisions, decisions…decisions everywhere… 

(#Agile #workshop)

In most cases, organizations want to distribute decision-making to teams. Teams are doing the actual work, and are often better in making decisions about the work than managers. Great teams make clear and timely decisions and move forward without falling into decision paralysis. But what happens when the manager tells the team to decide, and just walk away? Empowering a team is great…but what is happening in the team? How does the team make decisions? Should they always vote like a democracy? Is it ok when just one person makes a decision? Or should they always reach a consensus when making decisions?

Decisions can be made by one person or carried out by a part or whole team. The question is when to use which approach and how will the team decide? This is where the decision model comes in. Management 3.0 now has a tool to help you: The Team Decision Matrix.

The Team Decision Matrix helps you and your team know when to use which decision method. It helps determine if you have to consult the team or just decide yourself and furthermore if the decision has to be agreed upon by the whole team or not.

At this workshop we will learn and discuss:

  • how the Team Decision Matrix can support teams in self-organization;
  • what are the Team Decision Cards;
  • the importance of clarity when it comes to decision-making in teams;
  • decisions in a teamthe five-team decision models;
  • how do we make decisions in a team;
  • how to avoid decision-making paralysis;

For this workshop, basic Agile knowledge/experience is recommended, but it is not required. Also, this workshop is going to be in the Serbian language!
