On the problems with Self-organization

Self-organization is one of the principles in Scrum, and a tool for teams to reach a high-level of performance. However, not all teams are ready for self-organization or ready to overcome problems when expected to self-organize. In this episode i am sharing a story of the problems i’m seeing with teams that are pushed to self-organize before they are ready.

Factors influencing team behaviour

There are many sources of influence in how one team behaves, and the most important source of influence is the environment or system in which the team exists. In this episode we discuss the Fear of Failure anti-pattern. An anti-pattern that is caused by the expected interactions between team members: one of the key system conditions (expectations).

Why change should consist of small experiments

There’s not only one way to achieve any arbitrary change in an organization. Consider the Lean Change Method, an Agile approach to change management that relies on what we’ve learned in the Agile space to create an approach to Change Management that enables us to be adaptive and learn quickly also in a change process.

The success criteria beyond happy teams

Happy teams are more productive, and therefore we should strive to find the conditions that allow teams to be happy. However, that’s only one success factor. There are many more success factors to consider!

What makes good teams great

Coaching is one factor that affects team performance, but there are many other factors that affect teams and those other factors may be more impactful than our work as coaches. Listen to this episode to find out what factors influence team performance far beyond the work of a coach or Scrum Master.
