Great teams have a purpose that is greater than the individual.

In the first part of this talk, Joern Larsen will explain why it's crucial that teams have the freedom to make decisions and why the ability to improvise will make all the difference.

In the second part, he will go into detail of why waste is a crime. He'll explain why you should do things right the first time, why you shouldn't multitask and why stupid policies are just that - stupid.
