Do you have a great team & a great mission but don't understand why the pace of delivery is so slow? Architecture & tech stack is only one part of the story.
I believe high performing teams need four things to be effective:
Mastery - The skills & knowledge needed to do a great job, and a clear path to get to the next level.
Autonomy - The space to figure out their own solution to a problem & how they want to work
Purpose - A clear sense of direction, and the knowledge of how what they’re working on fits into the big picture & helps their team succeed.
Safety - A team that is afraid won’t take risks or experiment, a team that is afraid of finger-pointing won’t learn from mistakes.
In this talk I explain why those four things are key to teams being successful and give examples of how I’ve turned teams around by fixing the lack of one or more of them.
