Jeff Bubolz on the importance of having the team measure their own success

Success is when a team has reached a point where they improve regularly, and perhaps don’t even need a Scrum Master present at every meeting, or facilitating every session with the team. When that happens it is time to move on to other topics. Is the team learning how to measure themselves and the flow of work? In this episode we talk about team self-measurement and how the team can learn from starting and maintaining their own dashboard.

In this episode we refer to the book Scrum Mastery by Geoff Watts.

In this episode we refer to the team dashboard created by Troy Magennis of Focused Objective.

Learning happens at the team level. The retrospectives are the key ceremony where that aspect of our work is most visible. In this episode we talk about the different phases of the retrospective and how get teams to own the retrospective.
