High Performance – High Technology Teams, 26 April 2017, London; 23 May 2017, Dublin
High Performing Teams (aka HPTs) have been consistently in the top leadership and management challenges for the last twenty years. During this period, the dynamics of teams has radically evolving in several very significant ways including:
This course provides a thoroughly modern and up-to-date approach for creating high performing teams which considers all these dynamics.
The course is highly interactive and experiential and uses a High Performing Teams Business Simulation to bring the learning to life.
This one day course will provide a hands-on introduction to the concept of High Performing Teams and how to develop them in your organization. The course will be particularly relevant to High Tech organizations who want to accelerate the effectiveness of their teams through the virtual technologies which they have already adopted (or are planning to adopt).
The course will centre around a sophisticated High Performing Teams Business Simulation which will be played by delegates (in teams) throughout the day. This simulation provides highly engaging experiential and social learning on High Performing Teams and is used by major organizations.
The course will be delivered by Ken Thompson who has written 3 books on teams and collaboration. Ken’s first book (Bioteams) has been very popular in IT communities who are using Agile methods are interested in more modern models of team. Ken’s background is in software engineering and the management of large scale projects plus a number of technology start-ups. Ken’s work has featured in major publications including The Guardian Newspaper, Wired Magazine, The Huffington Post and The Henry Ford Magazine. Ken has also spoken at a number of international events including TEDx, the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) and NASA conferences.
At the end of this course attendees will understand how to assess a team’s current level of performance and how to plan effective interventions which cover both the change management and process development aspect of creating a high performing team.
Attendees will also understand how the different types of virtual technology such as virtual meeting tools, messaging and virtual communities can be used to enhance team performance.
Attendees will have the opportunity to apply the techniques, tools and forms to the teams in their own organisation before the close of the training.
The course will cover the following:
Before the business simulation the necessary HPT theory will be introduced and discussed. During and after the business simulation, delegates will be given the opportunity to reflect on their learning and to apply the relevant techniques, tools and forms to assess and create an action plan for high performance in their own organizational teams.
Each delegate will receive:
