Scrum.org Webcast: Teams are Self-Organizing — Get Over It

September 26, 2019: Webinar

Live Recording

In this Scrum Pulse webinar, I examine self-organization (in team settings) and explore examples of self-organization in the workplace.

My premise is simple: teams are self-organizing. I assert that is not a statement of preference or intention; rather, it is a statement of objective fact.

Scrum is among a very small number of frameworks which acknowledge that self-organization is natural. Scrum asserts that the quality of decisions increase when stakeholders collaborate with and trust the wisdom of their teams. The opposite is also true: Scrum’s design implies that common misbehaviors of managers (intervention, command & control) have costly consequences.

This webinar helps you learn strategies to better manage the work environment to support Scrum Teams and enable successful self-organization.
