Why people hate working in agile teams, and what you can do about it @ QA: Challenge Accepted

October 1, 2023


I will be speaking at QA: Challenge Accepted about why people hate working in agile teams, and what you can do about it. Join me on Sunday, October 1 in Sofia, Bulgaria.

Why people hate working in agile teams

By now, many of us have been through one or more “agile transformations”. We’ve been surrounded by agile coaches and Scrum masters who tried to help us adapt to agile, with managers who became servant leaders. Hopefully they weren’t telling you what to do or how to do your work! A lot of people simply hate working in agile teams – Ben hears that all the time. And that is why he’s here! In this talk, Ben will explore the difficulties of collaborating in teams and what we can do to make it beneficial and worthwhile for people to work in teams.

What you can do about it

Ben will delve into what teams really need, and what leaders should do and should not do to support them, including providing an environment and culture where teams can flourish and supporting teams in removing barriers. Through this talk, attendees will gain a better understanding of the reasons why people struggle to work in agile teams, and what leaders can do to create a positive and supportive environment for teams. The talk is intended for anyone working in a team or working with teams, from agile coaches and Scrum masters to managers and team members who are looking to improve their collaboration skills and create a more positive and productive work environment.
