"From Project to Autonomous Teams – the Journey" Speaker: Leslie Lowman North Region (Cabarrus & Huntersville)
Teams are defined in many different ways in organizations. The traditional term that is used is “Project Teams” but there is a current movement towards “Autonomous Teams”, but what does that mean? Teams go through a journey from the concept of being a Project Team through various levels of self-sufficiency to get to an autonomous team. Let’s walk through what characteristics there are of each level and the move from one to the other. At the end of this session, you will walk away understanding the characteristics and the journey teams and their members take to move from project teams to autonomous teams.
