This month Andy Kelk has kindly agreed to share with us his experience with self-selection of teams for an Agile Release Train.
Self-organising teams produce the best results; how about if people self-organised into teams in the first place? We allowed our teams to decide what they’re going to work on and who they’re going to work with. We ran a team fair to get teams to opt-in to work on a particular team. This talk walks through the process we took, the challenges we faced and the outcomes we achieved.
