Agile PDX Westside: Building & Maintaining Self-Organized & Self-Directed Teams

This Meetup is past

50 people went


A self-organized team is perhaps the holy grail of agile. Ideally, scrum masters work themselves out of a job as the team becomes less dependent on managers, scrum masters, and project managers. But how is this achieved; what does it take to get there? Can a scrum master simply step away from a self-directed team yet everything remains seamless? Or does a team still benefit from coaching and facilitation to improve sprint after sprint? Let’s share our successes and failures of teams past and present so as a community we can seek that holy grail!

Doors open half hour before noon for those who wish to purchase a lunch and settle in before we begin.
