Hi everyone, I'm hosting the Project to Product Birds of a Feather group today!
(find me in the participant list, click Follow, and it'll bring you straight to me 🙂 )
Really curious what @jonathansmart1 has to say when @mail832 asks about the people who show up being the right peope wrt those who want to contribute but don't feel they can for some reason....
Hi @jonathansmart1 - if you see this, the question is basically as Nick said. What if the people who show up tend to be a self-selecting group who all kind of look the same and are used to having their voices heard? Do you have any thoughts on how, without 'persuading', we bring in the people who don't feel as confident that their contribution would be heard or valued?
tbh it's a question I have about a lot of agile-adjacent practices. I am so much in favour of self-organising, emergence of leaders, etc. in general. And, a lot of these things assume a level playing field, where the right person feels at least as able to step forward as the confident (but less capable) person.
Thoughts • CoP: open invite, law of mobility, whoever turns up are the right people, and… the 'right’ people need to know about it, there should be multiple channels for learning and feedback (in person, Zoom, internal social media, surveys, sometimes intentionally inviting specific people (flattery), catering to introverts and extroverts
A feedback mechanism that allows people to register interest, even if listen only mode (90%)
If there is someone less confident and we think more capable, the person maintains the agency to step forward or not.
Incentives: all of our behaviour is driven by away from threat, towards reward.
Therefore, how can we minimize perceived threat? How can we create incentive?
> Threat avoidance being twice as strong. Yes, we talked about that. Using FOMO and loss aversion bias to overcome the loss aversion bias attached to another hour writing code or whatever :)
Happy to hopefully help. Currently on a train with intermittent reception!
