Nooit tijd voor gemaakt. Aardig om te zien hoe ze uit diverse hoeken/startpunten, de weg naar agile coaching beschrijft.
Finally got time for this one!
“Sprint offers a transformative formula for testing ideas that works whether you’re at a startup or a large organization. Within five days, you’ll move from idea to prototype to decision, saving you and your team countless hours and countless dollars. A must read for entrepreneurs of all stripes.” —Eric Ries, author of The Lean Startup
We did design sprints at Weeronline.nl and Zoover.nl, and I found this one browsing Amazon.
Nice to read, not that hard to understand.
Hard to do though: setting up the right challenge with the right people is hard for example.
Half way, will update later
It’s striking to read a book that is so focussed on the product of de management: create a TEAM.
Although it’s an old book (2002), it’s being considered a standard work for people who’re trying to onderstand the way their team works. I got it from a friend, after explaining an exercise I did with our scrum team.
The book is written in a way that makes it easy to read. Which almost hides the message: building a team is hard.
The model the book uses is seemingly easy. The 5 dysfunctions are:
Dysfunction #1: Absence of Trust
The fear of being vulnerable with team members prevents the building of trust within the team.
Dysfunction #2: Fear of Conflict
The desire to preserve artificial harmony stifles the occurrence of productive ideological conflict.
Dysfunction #3: Lack of Commitment
The lack of clarity or buy-in prevents team members from making decisions they will stick to.
Dysfunction #4: Avoidance of Accountability
The need to avoid interpersonal discomfort prevents team members from holding one another accountable.
Dysfunction #5: Inattention to Results
The pursuit of individual goals and personal status erodes the focus on collective success.
