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?
Organizations with self-managing Scrum teams face the difficult challenge of balancing their autonomy while keeping their work integrated with the rest of the organization. Because both of these aspects are equally desirable, and we can’t simply make an either-or decision, we are faced with what is called a "wicked question".
Instead of letting the pendulum swing entirely to one side, this experiment is about finding ways of supporting both sides. With this approach, you help groups move from “either-or” to “yes-and” thinking. This experiment and its corresponding worksheet are based on the Liberating Structure Integrated~Autonomy.
