Scrum framework in enhancing team productivity

Team is responsible for the success or failure of a project, Every one wants his/her team to be in the Performing stage of the Tuckman model as early as possible.But to achieve this the cross functional/self-empowered scrum team need to inculcate the scrum values in their main stream. As we know team is a ship that sails together and drowns together, In order to keep the ship sailing the role of the Scrum Master becomes critical.

In the context of the case study in which a scrum team successfully accomplished a Fixed Price Project with various challenges and their mitigation plans this talk draws a correlation between a scrum team and a school class and tries to draw an analogy between the two.

In our school days we have been seeing two sets of students:- Self Performing ones & Non Self Performing ones and the various methodologies adopted by our teachers to bring the Non Self Performers at par to the Self Performers. We also saw that a topic taught in our school class by two different teachers could create different levels of understanding within the same class. Hence in a nutshell this talk will lay emphasis of creating a successful scrum team within the domain of the Scrum framework, by minor tweaks and twists that suits best by an Empirical Approach of Inspect and Adapt.
