11th Principle from the 12 Principles Behind the Agile Manifesto

Jeff Sutherland, one of the co-creators of Scrum and one of the original authors of the Agile Manifesto uses the term Hyper-productive team. And everyone hears what he says about producing twice the work in half the time and they are like yes! We want that! Let’s do Scrum and so we too can have hyper productive teams!!! But it’s not magic. Most think that all we need is to go to training, put up a task board, do stand ups, etc… and then they realize that not much is changing. How come?

Well hyper productivity does not happen by simply saying we are doing Scrum. Scrum if done properly, embodies the values and principles of the manifesto and creates an environment for teams to become self-organizing and that in-turn leads to hyper productivity.

So let’s first look at at how individual, teams and organization grow and mature to reach that state of hyper productivity.
