Overview

To review how teams enable innovation and improvement in organisations and examine how leaders can stimulate learning and continuous improvement within their organisations. We shall be exploring challenges of change in a dynamic context based around the idea of ‘teaming’ being a verb rather than a noun.

Content

The goal of this session is to explore issues relating to psychological safety, team problem solving, and organisational learning. In addition, we will address the role of leaders in promoting learning and continuous improvement in organisations.

To achieve this, managers need to stop thinking of teams as static groups of individuals who have ample time to practice interacting successfully and efficiently. Today’s corporate teams band and disband by the minute, requiring a more dynamic approach to how teams absorb knowledge. Key concepts include:

• The importance of focussing on team performance rather than team design.
• Teaming, a verb that embraces the reality of teamwork on the fly.
• Effective training requires the ability to recognise moments of potential collaboration and act upon them quickly. Leaders can encourage their employees to develop this ability.
• The notion of teaming as ‘the engine of organisational learning’.
