Projects predominantly rely on teams, and those teams typically sit within departments, organisations, companies; these teams consist of individuals who often have trained capabilities in specific technical areas – such as risk analysis, contract management, critical path analysis, planning and delivery of technical products and services; project teams often work as a unit, and their behaviours are usually focussed on delivering outcomes; they do this within defined environments, locations, software systems, client-hosted organisations etc.
Whether they know it or not, many of these dimensions fall neatly into what we have come to know as the neurological levels, as developed by Gregory Bateson and Robert Dilts. This webinar was an opportunity to align and integrate this model with the APM’s normal approach to governance.
The webinar explored:
-Understanding of how the neurological levels works at the level of the individual;
-How that can be applied and built in at team level;
-How the five or six-level model can be mapped to how the team operates;
-How to use chunking up or down, to get better results (and crucially to avoid waste and delay);
-Building this thinking into other parts of an organisation (particularly at identity level).
