Today I had the chance to sit with Valentin Yonchev and Matt Takane from the Red Hat Open Innovation Labs. Wanting to benefit from their vast experience of building cross-functional teams, I asked them a question: How to form a team?
This episode of the podcast is their answers to that question. You will find a lot of practical things to apply in your context whether you need to assemble a group of people only for a meeting, for a short engagement, or longer term.
During the discussion, Matt mentioned the Open Practice Library as a place to find the practices. We also used “pulling the Andon cord,” without really defining what it was, you can find out more details here.
