Join us as we explore team decision making and the challenges in blending human expertise. This talk will cover how teams become more effective at making decisions quickly and reaching a working consensus. Sean will share real world examples of where new expertise was required for project success and where expertise that had traditionally been essential to success now blinded a team to new possibilities. He will address how expertise can help a team to identify and manage risks.
Sean will offer practical tips for how to:
- Improve the timeliness and quality of decisions
- Foster effective collaboration on teams that include experts from different fields
- Manage risk, constraints and trade-offs
Whether you are a talented engineer, a product manager, or an engineering executive you will learn some practical tips for building and leading teams of experts.
