"Teaming" Teamwork on the Fly:

Use "Teaming" to create productive temporary and distributed teams that span organizations and distances.

Harvard professor Amy Edmondson has coined the word "Teaming" to represent temporary teams that come together to achieve a goal, then perhaps, go away.

Traditional team structures and processes assume a stable team that has established ongoing working relationships, shares common culture, and maintains high levels of trust earned over time.  

In both corporate and public organizations, distributed and temporary teams are becoming the norm as technology advances and new work paradigms mean that the team that sits down the aisle or down the hall is no longer how projects get done.  

I will use several of Edmondson's key points to lay out how you can build effective teams, on the fly, when traditional team building is not an option.  These principles work equally well to help distributed teams come together quickly and become productive.   

Join Scott this Friday, December 14th at Noon EST/10AM MST for a one-hour presentation and discussion on how you can use the latest thinking on teamwork-on-the-fly to help your newly formed or distributed team build trust quickly and move from Forming and Storming to Norming and Performing.

Scott is presenting with Millsapps, Ballinger & Associates, a  full life-cycle management consulting company focusing on helping organizations achieve their goals and increase organizational performance.  Their newly formed MB&A Academy brings together instructors with decades of experience in Enterprise Architecture, Professional Development, and Cybersecurity.

Join us for our first Webinar of the Week, a complimentary service offered by MB&A Academy every Friday.
