About the session

For the past three years Redgate has run a self-selection reteaming process to shape how teams are assigned to reflect the company’s strategy for the year ahead.

Our approach allows people to strongly influence which team they’re part of, encouraging them to move towards the work they find most engaging.

We’ve found reteaming in this way to be good for our people, our teams and our products. In this session we’d like to convince you to try self-selection reteaming too.

Aim: is to allay the fears software development leaders may have about self-selection reteaming and encourage other organisations to give their people a greater say over the team they are part of and the work they do.

Be inspired to try a self-selection process that works for you, building on the take-aways below.

Participant takeaways:

  • The principles of self-determination and the value of providing staff with autonomy, master & purpose
  • What holds us back from self-selection both as leaders and participants
  • What happened when Redgate Software ran their self-selection process (Spoiler: Good things)
  • How to plan and run a considerate self-selection process - physically and remotely
  • Tools and techniques to apply to your process

This session will be:

  • Delivered: Live
  • Recorded: Yes

Themes: Reteaming, Culture, Organisation, Leadership, Self-determination, Learning & Development
