2015 nyc-spin-collective-ownership

  1. 1. Illustrating self organization and collective ownership Jeanne Boyarsky 4/28/15 Note: I did not use any slides when presenting.This is a summary of what I said/did.
  2. 2. Goals 3 exercises to illustrate why self- organization and collective ownership are useful Target audience ◦ Those new to agile/scrum ◦ Those needing to convince teammates
  3. 3. To Use With a team, do each exercise with discussion in between Since this talk was only 10 minutes, I just stated the learning goal after each Note: this is useful even on a waterfall project. Empowered workers are a good thing!
  4. 4. Exercise 1 (copied from Scrum training) 1. Break into pairs (we did one pair because room was tiny) 2. Person on left is leader 3. Leader walks “worker” around room giving only instructions (Remember to move chairs/obstacles in the way) 1. Left 2. Right 3. Stop 4. Forward 4. Try exercise again but can give any commands you want
  5. 5. Exercise 1 – Learning Goals The second is better because workers are empowered to make decisions Better means faster/more efficient/etc A good leader/manager will move the chairs out of the way rather than give instructions to walk around them.
  6. 6. Exercise 2 Prep: In advance, pick someone who will be the worker. His/her job is to walk up to the chair obstacle and loudly say “I’m stuck”. Have the “worker” walk. Put chair in the way and then go stand in the corner. “Worker” announces being stuck
  7. 7. Exercise 2 – Learning Goals Gives up easily “Worker” knows the most about the problem. Leader didn’t even see problem (because in corner.) Better to: ◦ Solve problem on own ◦ Recommend solution and ask if ok ◦ Describe problem and ask for ideas Not good to dump on someone else
  8. 8. Exercise 3 At sprint planning meeting,“worker” in #2 agreed to take care of the all important walking task every day. At daily scrum/stand-up,“worker” is out sick/can’t do it due to something unexpected/etc. What happens?
  9. 9. Exercise 3 – Learning Goals Team should solve the problem rather than looking to manager/Scrum Master. Possible solutions include: ◦ Someone else volunteering ◦ Splitting up the task ◦ Re-prioritizing
  10. 10. Exercise 3 – Learning Goals Team should solve the problem rather than looking to manager/Scrum Master. Possible solutions include: ◦ Someone else volunteering ◦ Splitting up the task ◦ Re-prioritizing
