New economy teams and small orgs are often doing cutting-edge work with century-old traditional ways of working. Or at least without being as deliberate and intentional as they’d like to be in managing tasks, resources, and people.
Intentional learning matters.
Often, execution is so consistently urgent that there's no attention left to examine and implement practices of ongoing evolution, improvement, and learning.
Getting in sync can happen.
Greater effectiveness takes into account the interplay of systemic factors, including the interpersonal, the operational, and the structural factors which underly the day-to-day organizational life and functioning.
Seeing deeper is possible.
In examining opportunities for improvement, it can be easy to overlook a systems view and jump straight into solutions based on superficial understandings of symptoms rather than causes, especially those connected to team dynamics.
The culture, context, and conditions in which the individual members of the team/org operate will diminish or strengthen inherent potential of the members and the group as a whole.
