At the 2023 Global Scrum Gathering in Amsterdam, Fadi Stephan presented on the Self-Organizing Team Canvas. Below is the abstract of the talk, along with the presentation slides and a blog post related to the presentation.


One of the 12 principles of the Agile Manifesto states that “The best architecture, requirements, and designs emerge from self-organizing teams.” Why is that? And what exactly are self-organizing teams? How does a team become self-organizing? Teams that have always been used to command and control cannot suddenly become self-organizing overnight. Come to this session to learn what self-organizing really means. Understand the attributes of a self-organizing team and some of the challenges you face in getting your team there. Learn how to use the Self-Organizing Teams Canvas and appropriate delegation to find the right balance between team learning and team empowerment vs. control. Leave with tools and techniques to help you build and foster high-performing self-organizing teams.
