The Power and Pains of Autonomy

Modern organisations are convinced that autonomous empowered teams are one of the core concepts of agile and key to speed, innovation and success. In this talk Jimmy explores how to define autonomy in the context of a team:

  • Which are the promised benefits?
  • Common challenges, fears and pains.
  • What new expectations are put onto the team? 
  • Furthermore, what do the wider organization and leadership need to do (or change) in order to leverage and unleash the power of autonomy?
