Do super star individuals deliver greater results or super teams?
While we all might instinctively feel the team would do better but…
Super start individuals can sometimes deliver up to 10x results
That’s why companies tend recognize individual performers more.
However, super teams outperform other teams by 100x!
The ‘economies of scale’ come from alignment of purpose and empowerment
Now how do these 100x results come about? When scrum teams have:
- Autonomy. All the skills and needed resources reside within the team and they have no dependencies outside
- Transcendence. Alignment of purpose, everyone thinks and dreams of the exact same goals.
