In August I spoke at GDC Europe in Köln about the independent team structure at Wooga. Not everyone knows this, but at Wooga, each team has the final say on all decisions regarding their project.

This talk is about the challenges and benefits of working with this structure for the last 3 years. Its a structure that gives full creative control to teams, but also the full burden of responsibility.
