Responsibilities of the Executive Action Team

Transitioning from traditional project management to Scrum is a paradigm shift. Too often, leadership believes implementing Scrum is a simple process change that can be delegated. Leadership must own an Agile transition because it is nothing short of a strategic reorganization. Albeit an incremental one.

Executive Action Team Overview:

To truly reap Scrum’s benefits, the C-Suite must lead a cultural change. How? First and foremost, they need to form as a senior Scrum team, or Executive Action Team (EAT.) By operating as a small cross-functional team, executives understand how the Scrum ceremonies, roles and tools work together to enable massive increases in productivity. They also learn how collaboration, rather than command-and-control, enables innovation and problem solving. This emotional aspect is the cultural change leadership needs to learn and communicate to the rest of the enterprise.
