SCRUM: Agile Methods to empower teams

Many routines, methods, practices coming from the world of Agile can be applied in any project, bringing benefits to teams and customers. Note that it shall be done respecting agile value and mindset (collaboration, team spirit, self organisation, customer focus, responsibility,...). Here are few examples you could consider:

Run your activities in sprints of one month, and plan sprint ceremonies to review what has been done, spend some time to improve the way you work ( see practices related to team improvement), and plan your next activities depending on changes and new priorities.Use extensively Visual Management for the team to control what they do. Even if you don’t run sprints, propose regularly some retrospective, some time to reflect on how the team works and how to improve. Define priorities, the 'what’ and let the team self organize and decide the 'how’Let the team contributes to the estimation of the workload (see planning poker practice).

Retrospectives

Regularly the team reflects on how they worked during the last period, what went well, what could be improved, and selects one or two improvement axis.

There are many ways to run a retrospective.

Let's quote some of them: starfish & Niko Niko


Starfish practice is coming from Agile principles.

Brainstorming session with post-its on what the team should DO MORE, DO LESS, START DOING, STOP DOING and KEEP DOING.

Ideas are clustered and then the team votes for the best ideas. They keep one or two improvement ideas.


Niko, niko: it is a mood graph where each members draw his/her mood during the period and then explains variations, peeks. The team can then decide what to improve to increase their good mood.

Prepare axis on a board (horizontal representing time, and vertical one representing the mood - could be positive and negative). Each participant draw their mood graph during the period and then give explanations

Johari Window

The Johari window is a technique that helps people better understand their relationship with themselves and others. In the exercise, someone picks a number of adjectives from a list, choosing ones they feel describe their own personality. The subject's peers then get the same list, and each picks an equal number of adjectives that describe the subject. These adjectives are then inserted into a two-by-two grid of four cells See Wikipedia : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johari_window
