Session Name:

Producer Bootcamp: A Producer's Guide to Enabling Intrinsically Motivated Teams


For the best outcomes, teams must be highly aligned on why they exist and for whom they are making a product. Lack of alignment can lead to tremendous wasted energy and churn. In this talk, the speakers will go over a method to identify and declare team cultural values, define a shared mission, and evangelize planning. They'll delve into examples of the opposing poles of command and control verses autonomy, and suggest specific methods to align teams to best support innovation. The speakers will draw upon specific learnings from the fast-paced development environment at Telltale Games (among others), and talk about the methods, metrics, and missions that have been most effective for them in their quest to increase productivity, team morale, and team innovation.
