Team Motivation (Excited about Agile?)

Convener: Bill Slocum

Participants: (See below)

The purpose was to do some collaboration on how to get team members more excited about Agile so they want to do more. They need to understand that this is not just another passing fad. Key points were captured and are attached here. High level summary: We know that motivation is not easily solved. There are many factors that affect ones motivation, and what works for some teams may not work for others. Affecting factors range from external sources (such as management and others) to personal reasons for the individual themselves (some will never be motivated). A short summarization of our discussion on possible ways to increase ones motivation; through the use of continuously sharing the measurable benefits, incentives, anonymous input from the team for retrospective (on people/reasons causing motivational issues), reminding team there is not much to fall back to (waterfall is worse), small celebrations during sprint on progress (can be a simple ‘woo hoo’), and team self evals to name some.
