Ravi Jay: Building great Scrum teams

This team was full of “rock-stars”, but something was not working as expected. The architects were seen by the team as someone to look up to, and that affected how they estimated their work. Aiming to please, the team was getting into trouble. This helped Ravi understand an important lesson: building a rock-star team is always better than building a team of rock stars!

Featured Book of the Week: The Phoenix Project, by Gene Kim

In The Phoenix Project by Gene Kim was a book that helped Ravi understand some of the problems he had faced in his own work. It was a book that opened his eyes to some of the common problems that he later would face as a Scrum Master.

 

 How can Angela (the Agile Coach) quickly build healthy relationships with the teams she’s supposed to help? What were the steps she followed to help the Breeze App team fight off the competition?

Find out how Angela helped Naomi and the team go from “behind” to being ahead of Intuition Bank, by focusing on the people!
