Five Responsibilities of Team Members When Transitioning to Agile
Transitioning processes and cultures simultaneously is very difficult. A Successful Agile transition requires team ownership and engagement in developing the best process to fit your unique culture and environment. Five areas where team members are integral to push the process forward and become successful are outlined below.
Seek Constant Improvement
It is important a team push themselves to be better. In this industry, it is no longer acceptable to just be a tech expert; you also need to work more productively in a team environment. Take advantage of numerous sources of information by reading books and blogs and sharing interesting tidbits with your peers. Learn how others work since someone else has probably encountered similar problems.
Just because someone else thinks it is the “right” way to do things, doesn’t mean it is. In early adoption, everyone is learning and no one is an expert. Always keep in mind there is no one right answer. Examine multiple points of view and try the approach the team thinks will succeed in your environment. It is natural to be skeptical, but try to be fair and open-minded.
