Scrum and Leadership: Responsibilities of the Executive Action Team

“Transitioning from traditional project management to Scrum is a paradigm shift. Too often, leadership believes implementing Scrum as a simple process change that can be delegated. Leadership must own an Agile transition because it is nothing short of a strategic reorganization. Albeit an incremental one.

To truly reap Scrum’s benefits, the C-Suite must lead a cultural change. How? First and foremost, they need to form as a senior Scrum team, or Executive Action Team (EAT.) By operating as a small cross-functional team, executives not only understand how the Scrum ceremonies, roles and tools work together to enable massive increases in productivity but they learn how collaboration, rather than command-and-control, enables innovation and problem solving. This emotional aspect is the cultural change leadership needs to learn and communicate to the rest of the enterprise.

Join Jeff Sutherland and his Scrum Inc.team, Tuesday, December 1st at 11am EDT for an extensive examination of why and how leadership needs to engage to de-risk an Agile implementation.” [1]
