Scrum Team Structures

  • Dave McKenna


I find that most people don't think of their day-to-day work in the terms of operating within the structure of a team, let alone becoming a high-performing team. Before Agile, the workplace was a very competitive place, where everybody focused on themselves. People worked isolated in cubicles and only came together for status meetings where management looked for whom to chastise because they were behind in their work. Now the focus needs to be on the team and collaboration. Those impacted by decisions make those decisions. Failure is looked at as an opportunity to grow, not to point fingers and shift blame. Information and knowledge is freely shared, and quality is emphasized over meeting a specific date.
