Run your team as Independent Agile organistion

Running a team when there is no differentiated product identity for the team is difficult. And then suddenly all roles in agile like PO, Scrum master started looks like retrofitted. To get rid of this situation, each team should need mission statement and team manifesto similar to agile manifesto. This will be bottom up approach and not top down approach. teams shall come up with mission statement and team manifesto so that they can live with-it. Suddenly this will start to look like different ball game and all roles will get the meaning. POs , SMs and for that matter team members will feel they are leaving these roles. Rest of the organizations view towards this team will change.

    Hi Dilip,

    From the wordings of the structure of the session, I assume that it is still untested and a proposed style of working.

    Hi Dilip,

    I have seen this Team manifesto concept in many organizations. Infact As agile coaches we make the teams to come up with a shared goal to help them get aligned to work and create a team bonding in them. How different is this method/approach from the one I have shared. Can you please share some striking idea/approach you have taken that beats the conventional way. What are the key takeaways to the audience? 

    Appreciate your help in helping with answers
