To become an effective product manager requires practice & repetition, just as it does for successful athletes & musicians. This three-hour interactive session will provide the foundation for the factors that lead to product team success. We will establish a logical framework for team performance, based on the concept of "social contexts" as a driver of outcomes. We explore the risks of unmanaged social contexts with examples from Challenger's explosion, Hubble's flawed mirror, & Korean Airlines crashing. We then examine how to measure intangible social context fields & explain our core team development process. We will build a systems perspective for success through our core behavioral change process, "AMBR," Attention, Mindset, Behavior, & Results.
Gain a clear understanding of the elements associated with high performance teams
Analyze & design social contexts that contribute to successful product teams
Learn the essential dimensions associated with high team performance
Facilitate successful product team behaviors for immediate use through applied tools such as appreciation, accountability & commitment, & context shifting exercises
This highly interactive workshop will be based on the work of Charlie Pellerin's book, "How NASA Builds Teams".
