In our work with Scrum Teams, we find that many don't know where to start. Or worse, they give up and resign to the situation. In this series, we're creating a toolbox of tried-and-tested experiments to improve together. Most experiments are bundled in the Zombie Scrum Survival Guide.
How does this help your team?
The autonomy of teams decreases as their dependencies on external people increase. Some dependencies are explicit, such as when a Scrum Team needs someone outside the team to do something for them. Other dependencies are more implicit. Having to ask for permission or approval from someone outside the team in order to proceed is a good example.
This experiment is about making transparent where and how often permission is required.
