The term 'self-organizing' is mentioned five times in the Scrum Guide, and if you Google the term you will be presented with a myriad of articles extolling the virtues and benefits of having teams self-organize by allowing them to choose how to accomplish the work. However, you won't find many articles that describe in detail how to help teams begin to form into those extraordinary self-organizing teams. Reality check: Most organizations just starting to transform begin by allowing management to assign people to specific teams based on the notion that people are not capable of self-forming into cross-functional teams with the right skillsets. This is a missed opportunity to dramatically shift the culture by establishing trust and empowerment. Come and learn the techniques to facilitate a team self-formation event so that you can transform your organization into a self-organizing culture no matter where you are in your journey.

Learning Outcomes:
  • In this dynamic simulation workshop attendees will learn the techniques to facilitate a team self-formation event, which will allow people to self-select into cross-functional teams that are fully capable of delivering features for their Product Owners. The goal is to teach attendees how to transform typically large traditional delivery organizations into scaled scrum (or other agile framework) teams.
