Session Name:

Ensuring a Positive, Collaborative Team Culture


During development, almost all eyes are on the product or the schedule. When the focus is on the game's quality and shipping, team health and team satisfaction can begin to decline, and some leaders have a tendency to micro-manage and become more task-oriented. The most successful teams have strong leaders who develop and continually reinforce a Positive, Collaborative Culture one that encourages and respects the contributions of every team member and focuses on ensuring the team believes in the product and in each other. Richard Carrillo, Creative Director at Sledgehammer Games Toronto, will break down and explore the five essential priorities of this culture: the Team, the Player, the Game/Vision, The Craft, and the Idea.
