A Team of Leaders: Empowering Every Member to Take Ownership, Demonstrate Initiative, and Deliver Results

Author: Stewart Liff, Paul Gustavson | ISBN: 9780814434079

Workplace teams are supposed to harness employees' talents to tackle challenges. But the reality often falls short. Now imagine having a team where everyone steps up and performs all of the leadership tasks. Imagine a team that is constantly sharing knowledge and pushing the envelope--one that does long-term planning and produces outstanding performance. A Team of Leaders shows readers how to design systems that nurture the leadership potential of every employee--the key to creating high-performance teams. The book's proven principles and techniques include: the five-stage Team Development Model that maps the transition from traditional to self-directed teams; best practices in team process design; a Team Value Creation Tool that allows members to appreciate the significance of what they contribute each day; visual management; and more! Filled with real-world examples, this fresh approach transforms passive groups of disparate people into effective teams of leaders--workplace teams that work!

Acceptance

Wiki

Acceptance of risk involves recognition that the risk is a factor, and that the project team is not actively changing its approach to the project to respond to it. Acceptance is not the same as ignoring the risk, however. Contingency plans should be put in place to be able to respond to the risk should it occur.

Wiki

Acceptance Test Driven Development (ATDD) is a practice in which the whole team collaboratively discusses acceptance criteria, with examples, and then distills them into a set of concrete acceptance tests before development begins.

Wiki

A project manager will formally schedule an action item to ensure the necessary activity is noted and assigned, but scheduled to be completed later so as not to derail the meeting.
