Helen Garcia: Helping Scrum teams speak up and take responsibility for their success

This team would not speak up. That puzzled Helen. We explore the anti-pattern of the silent team that would not speak their mind, and what happened. Through this story, we discuss how we, as Scrum Masters, can help teams grow and be confident of their ideas, and take responsibility for their success.
