Trust Deficit

June 29, 2022

A project where the team that does not trust it’s leader is doomed to failure. The leader of a project who does not trust their team is also doomed to failure. Trust is the engine oil that overcomes the friction created by excessive governance. Most methodologies focus on creating more and more artefacts that simply look to risk minimise the lack of trust in a team.

Take an F1 team. The extreme trust in everyone doing exactly what they need, when they need to, allows for complete tyre changes in under 2 seconds. Not a perfect comparison of course, but does help illustrate a key component of high performance teams that NO level of additional governance will overcome.
