Leading Project Teams - Virtually Today 1 Getting Connected 2 3 Deliverables to Celebration Maintaining Momentum
Agenda • Reconnect • Breakout 1: Project Sponsor/Charter discussion • Project progress and prototyping principles • Breakout 2: Rapid prototyping at Councils • Communication platforms – pros and cons
“Progress Principle” • Small wins fuel momentum • Team Leads must speak to people’s “inner work life” • Make sense of everyday changesto the team • Help people manage their emotions to those everyday events • Pay attention to people’s motivation/drive to do the work (intrinsic vs. extrinsic)

Breakout #1 • Discuss challenges you have encountered that might have been helped by using a charter type tool. • Assign a room facilitator, recorder and someone to report out. • 8 minutes total
Innovation Via IDEO Invert the thinking… Carefully articulate all design specs and build to specs Prototype your way to your final design specs
IDEO Prototyping “Fail early to succeed sooner” • 4-6 prototypes on average • Quick, low-fidelity, low-cost experiments • Multiple teams developing prototypes • Put at least two prototypes in front of the customer/client) • Get best data by watching client interact with • the prototype
Breakout #2 We will put you in breakout rooms, when you get there: • Choose a facilitator, a recorder and someone who will report out. • For one of your councils’ projects, discuss how you might prototype/test ideas with your customers before trying to scale. • Discuss how you can cost-effectively take a multiple prototype approach (like IDEO did with the 4 cart prototypes). • You have 10 minutes.
Virtual Communication Need tools for both synchronous and asynchronous meetings. • Communication • Conferencing • Document storage and sharing
Project Communication/Sharing Guidelines • Which of the project tools would work best? • Given the tools we are using, what are the simple guidelines we need to follow? • What’s the cost, availability?
