Brian Marick started a series of blog posts on the seven pillars of an Agile team. Brian, Chet Hendrickson, Ron Jeffries, Robert Martin and James Shore came up with seven basic aspects of an Agile team:
- Product sense
- Focus on Business Value
- Supportive Culture
- Technical Excellence
- Self Improvement
Brian already started a first description on Product sense with more to come.
His description on the spider graph approach used during retrospectives reminded myself on the A Better Team questionaire based on James Shore’s and Shane Warden’s book The Art Of Agile Development. Since James contributed to the seven items, I believe this is no coincidence.
