Scrum – Challenges with self-organizing teams

December 26, 2011 at 10:02 am | Posted in Blogroll, Scrum and agile | Leave a comment

Recently I presented a webinar on “Managing Self-organizing Scrum Teams”. I would like to share a few highlights.

Self-organizing teams are empowered, rather than being directed and controlled from top. They are encouraged to participate actively & collectively in all the Scrum practices. Naturally this leads to enhanced expectations of freedom, especially amongst those who come from non-Scrum backgrounds and enjoy the new found freedom. However, this creates a challenge for the leaders at all levels to balance this freedom with reliable & predictable outcomes.

The webinar explored in detail these challenges as they are faced at the time of assembling a new Scrum team as well as thereafter to sustain the self-organization. For full details of the challenges and possible solutions, you may like to visit

The presentation was followed by a lively Question & Answer session. These can be found at
