Christopher Avery: Building or Rebuilding Great Agile Teams

by Anna Kulakowska

The author of ’Teamwork Is An Individual Skill’ started his talk with a Tic Tac Toe game. I guess most people are familiar with this game; its aim is to maximize your score. If we are convinced that there is a shortage of something, we set our mindset to concentrate on scarcity. We assume that someone needs to loose in order for someone else to win. And nobody likes to loose…
This demonstration presented some evidence on how our mindset, by having a well-developed sense of scarcity, introduces additional constraints.

There are several factors that contribute to team success:
Getting in the same boat together
This allows for a better team cohesion, and understanding that the outcome is interdependent.

Identifying the singularity of goals
Specify what the team needs to do together to succeed. This will enhance the responsibility.

Achieving shared clarity through dialog
Consider what we must do together that is bigger than any of us, requires all of us, and none can claim individual victory until it’s done.

Surfacing individual motivation
Understand both intrinsic and extrinsic motivation. Be aware of the least invested coworker principle - any team will perform as poorly as the person who cares the least about the team.
