Presentation at Lean Agile Scotland Conference on 19th September 2013.
Mary and Tom Poppendieck tell us we should “push responsibility down” to empower the team. How do we do this? What does it look like as a team member when you’re accepting responsibility? How can a team leader recognise and foster team responsibility?
Drawing on over twenty years of research by Christopher Avery and Bill McCarley, this presentation provides insights into how people naturally think and react and how this affects taking responsibility. This leads to models which can help to break the cycle and get to productive responsible thinking sooner. On the way, I show agile practices which naturally encourage and support these processes.
