How to Form Teams in Large-Scale Scrum? A Story of Self-Designing Teams

Quand il s’agit de réorganiser toutes les équipes dans le cadre d’un changement d’organisation, il y a deux façons. Soit on fait du top-bottom et ce sont les chefs qui décident soit ont fait du bottom-up et ont laisse les personnes s’organiser pour constituer les équipes. Il s’agit ici de la deuxième option avec un retour d’expérience qui a eu lieu chez Bank of America pour une trentaine de personnes.

Instead of deciding on the new teams, the Chinese department manager Lv Yi (along with Bas Vodde, a Scrum expert who worked in the group) invited everyone into a large room, explained the goal of new Scrum teams, and simply asked the group members to decide among themselves. The group agreed it needed four hours for this, and Lv Yi said, “I’ll come back in four hours, and if some people have not decided by then, I will decide.” Four hours later and after much talk and activity, the group had self-designed their new teams. Then, volunteer ScrumMasters were brought to the center of the room, and the teams picked the ScrumMasters that they wanted.
