  • Presentation Outline

    With our now normative state of dispersed and more remote working away from the proximity of co-located spaces, we have to trust people more, allow them to direct themselves and keep a handle on productivity and performance and well-being and connectedness.

    Self-managed and Agile teams operate in this way, so now is the time to finally loosen the hierarchical grip on people and create more aligned, autonomous and liberated ways of working that will impact on structures, workflow and recognition. Join Perry Timms who will talk about the psychology, flow and evidence that sits behind this assertion and help you manage your dispersed ways of working to enable, optimise and engage people in a more flourishing way to be.
