Self-selection is a facilitated process that allows people to exercise autonomy by choosing what they want to work on and who they want to work with. In this workshop participants learn to prepare for a self-selection and experience it in action. “What could possibly go wrong?” debrief rounds out the game. The workshop draws inspiration from “Creating Great Teams” by S. Mamoli and D. Mole as well as Dana's experience of facilitating the self-selection at HBC Digital.

When is the best time to run a self-selection? How to prevent team members from sliding in to the Critter State? How to convince your leadership team to give self-selection a try? How to make a decision about participants? Should you include consultants or employees only?

We will discuss some of the factors that make preparation successful, including clear communication, transparency and early engagement with Product Owners and Scrum Masters of the future teams.

Inspired by “Training from the Back of the Room” framework, the workshop has a variety of hands-on activities, discussions and games to enhance participant’s engagement and provide valuable takeaways.
