How We're Killing Team Motivation, and How to Fix It

“Build projects around motivated individuals.” This is good advice from the Agile Manifesto. We rely on teams to build software, but if they are not driven to do so, we’re asking for trouble. So what makes an individual motivated? The entertainment industry seems to have figure this one out. In this talk, John Krewson will take a look at how motivation is used as a powerful tool in the creation of theatre and film. He’ll then walk us through an exercise in which we see first-hand what it feels like to be part of a motivated team. We’ll finish with a dive into the latest science and thinking on motivation, and how our ability to foster autonomy and connect team members to a cause influences motivation.
