Here's A Taste Of What You Can Expect

When You Read The eBook...

You will be challenged to deal with...

The Marathon Meeting

Is a meeting that feels like it's running a marathon without a finish line. Overlong meetings can drain energy and kill productivity.

A Team Board that is well structured can help keep meetings concise and focused.

Déjà Vu Discussions

Circling back to the same topics without making decisions or progress?

A Team Board is expected to show outcomes of earlier work, helping teams move forward without rehashing settled debates.

Silence of the Lambs

That eerie silence when someone asks for input or feedback.

A Team Board allows to first have a silent brainstorming, allowing everyone to post their thoughts before the discussion starts, giving a voice to all team members.

The Off-Track Express

When discussions derail faster than a speeding bullet, leaving the session's objective in the dust.

A Team Board is expected to bring focus. Items are clearly visible. Information that is useful is indicated. Metrics warranting attention are circled. Color codes, indicators, etc. all help to stay focussed on the session's objective.

The Zone Out

That magical ability to turn participants into zombies — present in body, far away in spirit.

Leverage the board's visual elements to keep participants engaged, using real-time updates and interactivity.

The Preparation Paradox

Or how the need for meeting prep is directly proportional to the likelihood of it not happening?

Well, a Team Board is expected to be up to date with the information a team needs, reducing preparation time to... nearly 0.

Hi there, I am Steven.

Probably just like you, I've worked in different roles with and within teams. 30+ years professional experience, as team member, project manager, team lead, scrum master, etc. Some teams were working very closely together, really collaborating, while others stayed a group of individuals taking up some tasks. Tools always promise a lot, they hardly ever live up to the expectations.
Especially when it comes to collaboration within teams. 

One thing I discovered the hard way is that in order for team members to truly collaborate there is a need for shared information, for shared understanding, for transparency. Sometimes understanding that we have a different understanding is all it takes to make a team address the challenge. 

Information radiators, team boards, have since proven their value in each and every team I've been on.

This eBook isn't just an easy read. It challenges you to think, to evaluate your team's status quo, to get together with your team mates and evaluate what actions you can take together. And if actions are taken, it lays the foundation for successful collaboration in your team.

Enjoy the journey!

The Broken Promise of Meetings: Where Did It All Go Wrong?

Meetings were supposed to be the powerhouse of teamwork and decision-making. They held the promise of collaboration, the spark of shared ideas, and the rhythm of progress. But somewhere along the line, this promise got lost. Instead of being dynamic hubs of creativity and efficiency, many meetings have turned into black holes of time and energy.

In an era where 'more' is often mistaken for 'better', our calendars have become cluttered with back-to-back meetings. The result? Teams find themselves trapped in a cycle of endless discussions, unclear objectives, and dwindling energy. The very tool that was meant to propel us forward has, for many, become a stumbling block, draining the vitality and enthusiasm that drives innovation and productivity.

Beyond Rigid Frameworks: Embracing a Principle-Based Journey

The path to revitalizing your meetings and team collaboration isn't found in the strict adherence to rigid agile frameworks or prescriptive methodologies. Such approaches always miss the mark, imposing one-size-fits-all solutions that overlook the unique dynamics and needs of your team. Instead, the real transformation lies in embracing a principle-based journey – one that values flexibility, experimentation, and self-discovery.

In this journey, there are no hard and fast rules, only guiding principles that serve as your compass. It's about understanding the core challenges your team faces and creatively adapting practices to address them. This process isn't about blindly following a set playbook; it's about writing your own story of success, one where your team actively experiments, learns, and evolves. By focusing on principles rather than prescriptions, you empower your team to discover what works best for them, crafting solutions that are as unique and dynamic as the team itself.
