A Basic Thought on Team Commitment & Responsibility

Reading this post from Matt Wynne today (via Twitter), the thing that I found most inspiring was this sentence: “As a coach, I like to introduce new practices only when I can offer them as a solution to a problem that the team has identified for themselves.”

As I commented in the post, I believe this is a key point to having a committed team that is ready to do whatever it takes to improve things.

Not only does the team have a strong feeling of being responsible (they are!) for the way things are done in the team (i.e. if we don’t do it, nobody is going to) – but having the problem defined by the whole team and the solution agreed by the whole team increases highly the chances of successfully solving the original problem.

A basic, which I thought was important to stress again…
