June 22, 2016, Tel Aviv, Israel: Agile Israel Talk: Dynamic Reteaming: How We Thrive By Rebuilding Teams. Who says you need stable teams in order to build a successful software company? We’ve thrived through dynamic reteaming – the act of moving team members around teams in different ways. While the addition or removal of one person from a team means you have a “new team”, there is a myth that when your team compositions change you’re doing it wrong. Reteaming helps improve your organization, your code and most importantly your people. For the past 9 years, from startup to public company, reteaming has been critical to our success. Reteaming has propelled our engineers’ learning. In this experience report, I share the what, why and how about reteaming.
June 17, 2016: San Diego, CA: Scrum Day San Diego Workshop: Improve your Communication with Coaching Skills If you know and care about the people you work with, everything else is easier. So how can you get to know other people better? How do you show you care? In this interactive session you will experience and practice skills such as listening and asking open-ended, powerful questions to really draw out the other person. Doing that raises positivity, and can help you to build stronger relationships in all aspects of your life. Here are the slides.

May 2016: Ypsilanti, MI: Agile And Beyond talk on Dynamic Re-Teaming: How We Build and Rebuild Teams. Abstract: Who says you need stable teams in order to build a successful software company? We’ve thrived with dynamically changing feature teams for the past 8 years from startup to public company. During this time, we’ve come up with several strategies to help individuals and teams gel and get up to speed as fast as possible. In this talk we’ll share the specifics, which relate to teambuilding, onboarding and continuous learning/reflection.
