Have you experienced the joy of being on a truly high-performing team? It’s an experience we thrill to have been part of, an experience we hope we can repeat. But taking a team to a transcendent state is all too rare - all too infrequent. A group of us have been surveying teams about practices and approaches and ultimately about team performance for most of this decade. High performing teams are not only a joy to be part of, but also highly effective at delivering products that delight customers. The 2012 Study of Product Team Performance revealed five practices that, if product teams do them, gives them a 67% likelihood of achieving exceptional team performance. (Similarly, if they practice none of them, they'll have a miniscule 2% likelihood of achieving exceptional team performance!). The 2013 Study revealed rapid growth in the number of teams becoming agile - and fascinating insight into development approaches that improve product profitability. The 2014 Study confirmed the connection between positive work environments and exceptional teams. Last year we discovered the importance of tightly integrating user experience as well as remarkable correlation between exceptional teams and standup meetings. Study co-authors Ron Lichty and Greg Geracie will present the insights we learn from the 2016 Study of Product Team Performance - as well as key findings from earlier studies. Join us and learn where you can focus to take your product team to awesome.
