SCRUM FOR TEAMS

Scrum: "A framework within which people can address complex adaptive problems, while productively and creatively delivering products of the highest possible value.” -The Scrum Guide

 

Today more than ever, work at all levels of an organization is done in teams. A team is defined as a group of two or more people who work interdependently and adaptively toward a shared and valued goal or vector. When a team or teams are needed, Scrum provides the framework and High-Performance Teaming™ (HPT) the mindset and practices of teamwork. Scrum combined with HPT's evidence-based cognitive and social skills act as the known, stable interfaces needed to build a team of teams. When applied at scale, Scrum and HPT build networks of high-performing teams. 

The power of Scrum comes from its origins. According to Scrum’s Co-creator, Jeff Sutherland, Scrum comes from the OODA loop of fighter aviation and Toyota’s Production System. Moreover, Sutherland, a former fighter pilot, calls OODA the “Mindset of Scrum.”

 

Scrum should never be forced on a group of people whose work has a low level of task interdependency. AGLX coaches use the Cynefin framework and lessons from HPT to help organizations make sense of where they should and should not apply Scrum.
