"Managing Self-Organizing Teams - An Old School Management Dilemma"
Two of the principles of the Agile Manifesto are Build projects around motivated individuals.
Give them the environment and support they need, and trust them to get the job done; and the best architectures, requirements, and designs emerge from self-organizing teams.
The Scrum Guide says “Scrum Teams are self-organizing and cross-functional. Self-organizing teams choose how best to accomplish their work, rather than being directed by others outside the team.”
The game has changed. So, how do you manage self-organizing teams? And, what do we do with traditional managers? That’s what this session is all about. We want our teams to be highly productive, to grow professionally, to enjoy their work and be in it for the long haul. All while being good organizational citizens and driving on the proper side of the road. We’ll cover a little management theory on motivation and maintaining a positive, healthy work environment and I’ll show you how to put it to work.Get ready for some serious management re-factoring.
