What if your development teams didn’t have to be static? What if you could form them and disband them every 3 months if needed? And people could pick what project they work on? Can ‘re-teaming’ work?

Is it a recipe for disaster? Or would it give you the flexibility to work on what has the biggest business impact, increase engagement and develop your future leaders?

In this talk, I’ll tell you how I led a team of 15+ people from a classical structure to something a lot more dynamic where re-teaming happens quarterly. I’ll share with you:
– How we plan our quarters and let people pick what they work on,
– How we create constraints to make sure the important work gets done,
– How we use OKRs to create alignment and track progress
– How we keep in sync and engage with our stakeholders

I’ll also share our mistakes, our learnings and how we are scaling those practices to 40 people.
