Ziryan Salayi: Detecting and eliminating micro-management patterns in Scrum teams

This team did not feel that they could make their own decisions.

As he started working with the team members 1-on-1, Ziryan started to notice the patterns that had trapped this team. Listen in to learn about those anti-patterns, as well as what Ziryan did to help the team get out of that self-defeating pattern.

Featured Book of the Week: Yes-but what if it all works out? By Berthold Gunster
