In October 2017, Alon Linetzki has spoken at QS TAG conference in Frakfurt, Germany.
The theme of the conference was 'Digital Transformation – Evolution, Innovation, Disruption', and Alon ran a workshop session from his experience with agile projects -
In any project, and especially in agile projects, the team needs to make good decisions along the way. That especially matters within the context of the digital transformation era, as the time for implementation is expected to get shorter, getting things right the first time becomes essential for projects, and so deciding swiftly and correctly by the team, and moving forward - becomes critical.
How decisions are to be made in different forms of team settings, and in different project scenarios? How is that done especially in self-organized self-managing teams?
We shall introduce the topic, discuss 7 Levels of decision making, and participate in a decision - making group simulation exercise, followed by a discussion and brainstorming. Within the simulation exercise, groups will receive real-life scenarios in which the group should get a decision using different decision making methods, and will have to discuss, brainstorm and cope with those scenarios, like in real life projects. Insights shall be shared on the conference website/app.
