What makes one team Scrumdiddlyumptious whilst another the Killjoys? At LAST Conference this week, I discussed a tale of two new agile teams within the same branch working on a large scale transformation across the enterprise. These were two of 18 teams now working on this program and in the same 12 month period, one team soared and exemplified the Agile mindset and were empowered, self-organizing, high performing and continuously improving whilst the other team struggled all the way and felt "Agile" was being imposed on them and "killing all their joy".
This was an exploration of the impact of leadership and culture. Whilst these teams were in the same branch and working on the same product, they had different middle level management. The difference in respective leadership style and approach was discussed and we explored how with the right agile leadership mindset, middle managers can make or break a team. Whilst Scrumdiddlyumptious was high performing, the Killjoys was plagued with vested interests, and a lack of agile mindset meant they were given permission not to change. As a results lots of anti-patterns emerged.
