I have a new book in beta, Create Your Successful Agile Project: Collaborate, Measure, Estimate, Deliver. (The in beta part means that it is in copyediting, and then onto layout and print. It's a process.)
I'm so excited about this book. My three most recent Pragmatic Manager newsletters were about jelled teams:
- The Case For Stable Teams, Part 1
- The Case Against Stable Teams, Part 2
- The Manager’s Role in Creating Effective Teams, Part 3
Agile approaches create more opportunities for jelled, performing teams. And, many teams find agile approaches tease them farther apart, not together. Often, that's because the people are battling a system that reinforces individual work.
Create Your Successful Agile Project helps team leaders and teams understand the work they need to do and how to show other people their progress in that work. No one can change a system if they can't see it.
See the table of contents on the Prag site right now: Create Your Successful Agile Project: Collaborate, Measure, Estimate, Deliver. Please do check it out and see if the ideas there might work for your agile project.
