What is Scrum?

Build projects around motivated individuals.

Give them the support and environment they need and trust them to get the job done.

Great agile teams are essential in environments where requirements are unpredictable and change is both frequent and fast. Agile is built upon the premise that, in those situations, the best placed people to work out what to do are those tackling the problems and implementing the solutions – the agile team.

This team will not be fed requirements but rather allowed to iteratively solve problems through creativity, collaboration and feedback.

What is a Scrum team?

  • Scrum Teams are cross-functional, meaning the members have all the skills necessary to create value each Sprint. They are also self-managing, meaning they internally decide who does what, when, and how.

    Agile Team Maturity

    All great teams define their own destiny

    Every team is unique and will first of all determine their own identity and definition of greatness. They will work through how they will all contribute to the team’s goals and growth then decide how to become the best team they can be. They will set their own bar and constantly work towards it, achieving milestones of greatness along the way.

    Become a great Agile Team

    The great agile teams I have seen develop themselves into a SQUAD:

    • Self-Improvement: They are relentless about getting better at what they do and how they do itr
    • Quality: They take pride in their work
    • Unity: They are stronger together than they all are individually
    • Audacity: They take the autonomy offered to them and bravely manage themselves
    • Delivery: Getting valuable, tangible work done is their ultimate goal
    • The Team Mastery Pathway helps your team identify their own definition of greatness to which they aspire and gives them the tools to chart their own path towards it, inspecting and adapting along the way.
