Balanced Teams at Scale

  • February 5 · 1:30 PM

Please join Balanced Team NYC for a lively discussion of "Balanced Teams at Scale" on Sunday, February 5th from 1:30-4:30 PM.

We're hosting a series of lightning talks followed by a fishbowl format discussion about making balanced teams work in big organizations. Some of the questions we'll try to answer...

• How do you create a balanced team in a big organization?

• What are the obstacles to getting started?

• Where are balanced teams emerging? As innovation labs and product teams?

• What do balanced teams look like in this context?

• How do you coordinate the activity of multiple balanced teams?

• How do you handle problems like portfolio planning?

• What can we learn from people who are trying this now?
