A few months ago I wrote an experience report for the Agile Alliance in which I talked about how to get the various agile roles in place. In the experience report I share my approach with striving for role agreements. The report is the fundament under my talk on the XP2020 conference.
As approach to get role agreement between PO and manager we held a series of talks in which we used a template with sliding-bars to indicate wether the responsibility was with the PO, the manager or shared. Readers approached me enthusiastically after reading the article and told me they want to try it in their own organisation. Great! They requested me to share the files so they can make a quick start with their initiative. In this blog I share the raw files for them and you to benefit.
The excel with the sliding bars that is used to start the delegation discusion between the PO and the manager can be found here:
Having a lot of conversation on the various roles yielded in insight on how we wanted to share responsibilities between the SM, PO, Manager and the Team. The article lists this in a big overview, that you can use to discuss and align the roles in your own organisation. If you want to edit it for your own purpose you can download the original file here.
Download is free for you benefit. It is highly appreciated if you refer to the author.You make me even more happy if you share your experiences with me, so we all can learn.
