Navigate the Phases of Team Development with Speed and Agility
Perhaps you’re heard about the phases of team development: Forming, Storming, Norming, Performing, and Adjourning. But are you aware of the unique behaviors specific to each phase? What exactly should you do during each phase to help the team (agile or otherwise) tackle challenges, make progress, and become successful? If you are a leader (or aspire to be one), a member of a team (or may be in one in the future), or are just looking to develop your skills, this talk (based on Bruce Tuckman's model, but with a fresh angle: 0% theory, 100% real-world-based) will give you a practical framework with actionable tips for working in and leading teams successfully. You'll learn about the five phases — Forming, Storming, Norming, Performing, and Adjourning — including detailed descriptions of each along with proven strategies for addressing challenges or issues which may occur along the way. You'll understand how to use the model to your advantage by effectively navigating all of the phases with speed and agility, from team set-up to the after-party!
The presentation is for leaders (or those aspiring to be one), members of a team (or those who may be in one in the future), or those just looking to develop their leadership skills. It’s for project management practitioners or those interested in the profession.
The talk draws on the speaker’s first-hand, real-world experience, with his guidance supported by additional research and recommendations from the PMI, IEEE, MIT, Harvard Business Review, and others
