About the session

Ever fought to make a decision when you’re tired, uninspired or under pressure?  Ever seen a high performing team struggle to reach a conclusion?  Ever wondered why that one story took so long?

That’s because team and personal decisions, especially important ones, are taxing for our poor brains, which would rather be deciding whether to eat, sleep or run away.

This talk looks at our most and least effective decision making and how to create environments conducive to solid decisions.  

Rather than go into depth in one area, this talk covers a range of contributing factors, designed to get people noticing when decision making could be quicker or better quality.  It has some nods to Kanban, but that's a very small proportion of it, and no prior Kanban Knowledge is needed.

Participant takeaways:

  • Understand the psychological challenges in making team and individual decisions.
  • Learn how team agreements can help, including consent and consensus
  • Learn how coaching and agile techniques can help, including visualising and managing decisions.

Themes: Teams, Coaching, Psychology, Kanban, Energy, Consensus, Facilitation
