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.
