The team I’m coaching at this moment is a distributed team over Holland and England and have just started to work with Scrum. They have put up a sequence to meet each other every month face-to-face to develop as a team. In January they had their first regular get together in Utrecht.
One part of the day was a “look in the kitchen” of another team that is two years ahead of them. The Product Owner of that team gave a presentation about their experiences on their journey towards an Agile organization.
The five takeaways from his session:
1. Get trained. Speak the same language
2. Visualize the team in the organization process
3. Find issues blocking the team to deliver business value in the value stream
4. Sprint rhythm helps a lot
5. Define services and use them as building blocks for Epics and User stories
This whole insight is super valued by the team. It was very meaningful to hear the real life experience from someone out of their own organization and what ‘bumps’ they encountered along the way. And even more important, how they’ve defeated those. This made the transformation a lot more concrete for them.
The team works hard now so they can make the same impact by presenting their development to another team in the upcoming year.
As Arnold Mindell says, the edge is a kind of threshold. It is the threshold of the known and the acceptable at a given moment and for a given individual or group. If someone can help you to take a look at the other side of the edge, it is easier to stretch the comfort zone. Maybe you can find someone in your surroundings to help you over your own or teams edge.

Afgelopen weekend gebeurde het weer. Het hockey team van mijn zoon verloor, en niet een beetje. Geëindigd als hekkensluiter, geen enkele wedstrijd gewonnen (not even close) en een magere begeleiding vanuit de trainers.
