Here's the recording of a talk I was lucky enough to give at the Lean Agile Exchange conference on "Three years of self-selection reteaming at Redgate".
This month I was interviewed by Sander Dur on his excellent Mastering Agility podcast to talk about Redgate's journey with self-selection reteaming over the last three years.
Organization leaders and development team members can find the notion of self-selection reteaming troubling. Why is that? What is holding us back from giving software engineering folks a greater influence over the work they do and the people they work with?
This month I was invited on the Agile.FM podcast to chat with it's host, Joe Krebs, about my experiences with annual self-selection reteaming at Redgate.
We've found that people appreciate having a strong influence on their destination during team reorganizations and that self-selection reteaming places people into teams they are happy to be part of. But there are difficulties to be aware of and, as with everything, there's always room for improvement.
