Dear Agilists,

(Yes, we changed the topic.)

Karel Smutny will tell us about his recent experience with self-managed teams in a startup. In Brand Embassy, a company Karel works with since last May, all three development teams have no managers. They self-formed, manage their work, create processes with other departments, hire and fire team members, make and own their decisions. Karel will tell us about the journey, hiccups, benefits, what are the necessary conditions, and if it is all worth it.

18:30-19:00 Case Study: Self-management in Brand Embassy
