X-teams: How to Build Product Teams that Lead, Innovate, and Succeed
In today’s exponentially changing world, an organization depends more than ever on its ability to create and manage product teams that can leverage all of its leadership capabilities – and in the process make the entire organization more agile, more responsive and more innovative. Unfortunately, all too many teams fail. Professor Henrik Bresman’s top-selling book, “X-teams: How to Build Teams that Lead, Innovate, and Succeed”, is considered by many the most consequential text on high-performing teams in decades. In it, Professor Bresman develops principles and practices that can help managers to build successful teams in fast-changing environments. In this presentation, Bresman explains why “good” teams often fail, introduces the X-teams model, and coaches managers on how to build winning teams in seven critical steps. Moreover, he discusses how the x-teams model, when implemented through systematic training, can be used as a vehicle to distribute critical leadership tasks across the organization.
