I wish I was listening to this panel as it looks awesome. If you record it please post it for those of us unable to attend.

One item that I would add to your list is at least a minimum understanding of business. A team should not have to rely on the PM or ScrumMaster explaining to a product owner why more things cannot be put into a sprint or why certain items have dependencies that need to be completed first. The team should be able to negotiate on their own behalf. For that, they need to understand the motivations of business and communicate effectively. Gone are the days when a developer (or tester or UI engineer) can only perform their craft.

Hi Robert,

Great point, yes we need an appreciation and strong interest in the business domain concerned. It builds empathy for the business issues and enthusiasm for the goal.

I will be taking notes at the session and will post a link to them shortly.


>Collaborative / effective communicator
>Work side by side / discuss work out problems real time

Let's look at the opposite - team unwilling to co-operate when problems arise.
