So simple yet covers it all!
- Understand the problem.
- What is preserving the pattern?
- What possibilities exist?
- What principles apply?
- Design probes.
- What might you perceive about how your probe is working?
- How will you permeate the innovation to other areas?
A few other nuggets from Esther:
Creating conditions where a team can effectively manage itself is a powerful act of leadership. The variables include:
- People know what to to work on and how their work fits into the larger context
- Folks have the means to do the work. Org structure/policy supports the work
- People know what should always be done…and what should never be done
- People can explain the reasons for their constraints
