System conditions - which affect our teams, but are outside their control - are not always simple to tackle, but with this question they will at least be simple to detect. In this episode, Donald shares with us a very powerful question when it comes to understand what is affecting the teams we work with, but is outside their power of influence.

We also discuss some of the anti-patterns that teams get stuck in, when they don’t tackle the system conditions that affect them.
