Five Functions of a Team

written on 23 Feb 2018, Cologne, Germany

Not finance. Not strategy. Not technology. It is teamwork that remains the ultimate competitive advantage.”

Patrick Lencioni - Author of the Book "5 dysfunctions of a team"

Working as a Scrum Master always means to me: help a team to become agile or learn scrum and work together in teamwork. To help people working to together in a scrum team, I've created a poster from the opposite of Patrick Lencioni's Book 5 dysfunctions of team. This poster helps my team to always remember the 5 core values of successful a team. The 5 values are structured as in a pyramid, without the lowest, the overlying ones have no foundation.

  1. Trust
  2. Conflicts
  3. Engagement
  4. Responsibility
  5. Committet to Results

The poster is only in german at the moment, please send me an email or PM on twitter if you need something in english.
