The Science of High Performing IT Teams – Culture, Credibility, and Collaboration featuring Elizabeth Freedman, Principal, Bates Communications In today's fast-paced, global, digital world, it's more important than ever for IT teams to be high performing. Yet, functioning as a team can be hard and failure costly. Recent studies found executives estimate that their companies lost an average of over $10 million per year because teams were avoiding conflict, lacked the curiosity to learn from others, or fell victim to analysis paralysis. To respond to this need, Bates led the research and development of the Bates Leadership Team Performance Model (the LTPI), which raises the bar for leaders and takes their understanding of what makes a high performing team to a deeper level. In this interactive session, Bates Principal Consultant Elizabeth Freedman will define 15 distinct facets of team performance and bring these facets to life by sharing real-life case studies of leadership teams. Participants will gain practical strategies on how to apply the Bates leadership Model to improve the performance of their own IT team or with a leadership teams within their organization.
