Here’s a radical idea: Trust people to know best and let them decide which team they should work in. Let them Self-Select!
Self-selection is the simplest, fastest and most efficient way to form stable teams, based on the belief that people are at their happiest and most productive if they can choose what they work on and who they work with.
In October 2013, Trade Me, New Zealand’s largest eCommerce provider ran the biggest Self-Selection event in the world since WWII, using a process which has since been repeated many times in multiple locations across the world.
In this presentation I will share my learnings and experiences from more than four years of running Self-Selection processes in large organisations. I will show you a repeatable process for how to establish efficient teams in growing organisations and will answer questions such as “Why would I do that”? and “How can I convince management?”.
