The actors guide to the Daily Scrum

It is true. We see plenty of times that people look up to the scrum master as some sort of authority, they are reporting to this entity rather than their team mates.

As interesting as this phenomenon is, what can be done in order for them to bond to each other as they should?

Anyone sharing such experiences? This article is interesting, but I still lack this component. Examples of having it working properly :)

Fire Up Teams by Creating Opportunities to Learn

Fire Up Teams by Creating Opportunities to Learn | Innovatus | Scoop.it
Over the years, I've had the privilege of leading people who are creative, smart and high functioning. The challenge of leading exceptional people is… well… exceptionally challenging.
Pintolaranja's insight:

For this, one needs to be ready to listen.

Fake listening doesn't count. Fake listening is the type of pseudo listening where one acknowledges the idea someone else is trying to bring to the table and then immediately turn it down by stating it is not valid or not interesting for whatever reason. Fake listening only leads to frustration and gossip and speculation because the person who gets refused will most likely become known for making stupid proposals.

So, really listen and always take the best out of what someone in your team is saying, use that to grow as a whole and include the others in the discussion. If a goal is not already there, start by setting one up, so the discussion is objective.

My 50cents from my own experience.

For me the trust "issue" says it all. Without it, there is no way we can go through all the other worries. With it, they don't make sense anymore.

Of course teams have to be built with the right mix of talent. But the right mix of talent can also be created in groups of people already working together so that they become real teams.

How to keep your mouth shut

"I have a genetic disorder known as "can not keep my mouth shut"."

 

I suffer from the very same evil "disease" as Scott. It is a torture.

Now, considering my current work environment, here is what grabbed my attention in the first place:

 

    .: the group had its own bar, and it was not my job to set it. -> The problem is when they don't have a bar neither do they move to set it. Neither does someone with proper authority to do so either helps me or them setting it. Total inercy. Where will this lead?

 

   .: "I also realized in the past, in other groups, progress happened not simply because I was right and took a stand (as much as my ego wished it to be true). It happened because my boss, or his/her boss, listened to my points and took action, or granted me the power to do so. Having an idea changes nothing unless someone with sufficient power, and genuine interest, does something about it. The idea alone is never enough. Nor is saying it out loud." This says it all. I don't have it. As much as people respect me, my experience and opinions, where we currently stand I'll be persona non grata forever.

 

   .: "No matter how right you are, if you care about effecting change, you should never open your mouth without some sense of who will agree with you and who won’t. ..." - This is why I keep my mouth shut. But then, that guy with authority says I should speak up and put ideas on the table. Again, where am I going?

 

Most of the days I just feel I can take as many approaches and suggest as many experiments I want. It just won't budge.

 

Conclusion: I need to change plenty more in my life.

You Can't Do Agile If You Haven't Seen Agile -- Application Development Trends

"Keep the agile coach around as long as possible. It takes years to get proficient and have a clear understanding of how to tackle different issues. Make sure that the projects are staffed with people that truly embrace the new agile paradigms. A single person can poison an agile project if they aren't willing to change how they think and work."
