Turning People into Teams: Rituals and Routines that Redesign How We Work
Today’s teams want more alignment among their members, better decision-making processes, and a greater sense of ownership over their work. Join us as authors and design experts David and Mary Sherwin share from their new book, Turning People into Teams: Rituals and Routines That Redesign How We Work, which was released in October 2018 and is distributed internationally by Penguin Random House.
Inspired by their long-running CIID course “Collaboration Techniques for Designers,” the book contains dozens of practical activities that help teams find a common purpose at the beginning of a project, get unstuck, and wrap things up before moving on to new teams. Customizable for any industry, work situation, or organizational philosophy, these rituals have been used internationally by many for-profit and not-for-profit organizations. By implementing just a few of these rituals, a team can capture the strengths of each individual for incredible results, making choices together that matter.
David Sherwin and Mary Sherwin are cofounders of Ask The Sherwins, LLC, a consulting and training firm that helps organizations around the world develop the capabilities they need for stronger teamwork. They have coached product and service design teams and developed innovation training for organizations such as Philips Oral Healthcare, Google UX Community and Culture, and Eventbrite. The Sherwins have collaborated on three books, including the bestseller Creative Workshop. They are both on the visiting faculty of Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design’s graduate design program.
When: Wednes. January 9th 2019, 17-18.

Where: CIID, Toldbodgade 37B, Ground Floor, 1253 Copenhagen K.
