A good team can do wonders. But those of us who have worked in teams know one thing- working in teams is not easy! And on top of it, we are expected to be winning teams!
Winning teams hmmm… that makes me think... can we look at sports teams and see what it really means to be a winning team??
While it is true that sports is different from delivering projects, there are similar challenges...targets, super hero attitudes, demotivated team members, performance pressures, uncertainties, .... and looks like, some sports teams handle them better than the others! . So are there things we can learn from them?
In a good sports team, individuals with different skills, background, attitude, emotional quotient, communication skills, body language, come together, complement each other and deliver as a unit. How does this happen? What makes such a unit tick? Is it the team or is it individuals? Is it a great captain or is it a self-organized team? Is it skills or is it attitude? What role does a captain or a coach play? What about preparation? ...
In this session, we are going to explore a few important aspects of a winning team which make them click. And from them, we'll derive, key learning which when applied to scrum teams make them reach the next level!

Individuals, their interactions and communication are highly valued in Agile.
These values frequently find application in the form of big visible charts or information radiators.
Yet, in a lot of large, traditional organizations who have started their journey in Agile, the public display of information, uniformly accessible to all, is unsettling.
Through a “scary” analysis of the impact of the lack of transparency, I aim to build a really strong case for more transparency at the workplace.
