Why isn’t my team self-organizing? 5 practical techniques for promoting strong Agile teams

In today's IT industry, Agile methodology has become a household word. My 6th grader talks about Agile principles that they learnt in elementary school. Self-organizing teams is one of the principles of Agile methodology. Yet, time and again, I hear Scrum Masters and Agile teams doubt the existence of these said "self-organizing" teams. Can teams really self-organize? What do self-organizing teams look like? What process should I follow to make my team self-organizing? Join me for a talk to decide for yourself.

    Case Study

    TSA Agile Services (TAS) began on January 4th, 2017 after extensive collaboration with contracting officials, various bids, and the Agile community.  Come hear the aspects that have enabled successful delivery within a government agency.  Also - because transparency is a large key to our success - we will cover the failures we have experienced and the struggles we are still working on.  Lastly - it is important for contractors and government to work closely together - this presentation will be co-presented by two Agile Coaches: one is a federal employee and the other a contractor.
