The scientific evidence is quite clear: To enable high-performance, you have to look at leveraging human capital and optimizing human potential. Let’s take a deeper look at the science behind creating high-performing teams by looking into behavioral science, neuroscience, and social psychology.

*Self-Organization – Not what you think …

As you probably know we are trying an experiment at Agile2013 this year. A new track, “Crowdsourced”, will be built in real time by the attendees at the conference. The format is simple: attendees go to the submission system at submissions.agilealliance.org/crowdsourced where they will see a list of sessions available for voting; attendees can then vote for the sessions they would like to see by placing a star next to any sessions that they are interested in. The voting runs until Wednesday, and the 15 sessions with the most votes will be announced and scheduled for a Friday morning time slot.
Based on early feedback from the Agile2013 sched.org website, your sessions are very popular and people have been wait listed. In order to give attendees the most access to the content they wish to see, we would like to add your sessions to the Crowdsourced track and make it available for voting. This would give attendees a potential second opportunity to make it to your session. If your session is voted on, you would be scheduled into a room for9:00 AM Friday morning.
I invite you to mark your calendars if you are attending the conference: Tuesday, August 6 • 2:00pm – 3:15pm. This will be my first talk on such a scale :), so I will appreciate your support! While I am preparing for the 5 minute talk, I am interested to know from AgileScout community:
What questions would you like to see addressed with respect to the above topic?

I want to make sure I share something that the agile community would find valuable. Your questions can help in advance. So, please share your comments and thoughts either here on the ideascale site and help me, help you!
Regardless of you attending the conference, you can still VOTE on the above idea (or any others ideas that interest you – Note: Account creation required with idea scale). Voting open till July 25th, so hurry!
