Team (re)-Launch - Better Outcomes with Better (re)-Starts
Maybe it's time we all get on the same page
There is a joke that if you ask 3 people what agile or lean are you will get 5 different answers. Unfortunately this is no joke if your team is not aligned on how the get things done or even what their project is. Team members can “know” agile, they can “know” lean, but if they have different perspectives on how to work together, and what our project vision is, then they are not a high performing team. This is a team workshop to create alignment on both how the team gets the job done, and what what the job is. Whether this is an experience agile team or a team new to agile, the benefits of alignment are immediate.
Create team alignment on practices for getting the job done and what the job is. Use those practices to create a team backlog and launch the team.
