I thought there would be value in creating a summary of the things which things which a Scrum Teams need help with. On reflection this is probably also the responsibilities of an agile leader.

  • hiring new team members (support and enablement not candidate specific deciding) 
  • improving test environment capabilities
  • improving Dev Team member and PO availabilty
  • creating right culture and reward systems
  • personal development of Dev Teams
  • enabling knowledge transfer between teams or individuals
  • managing/unblocking interruptions with the Scrum Team
  • overall business planning, capability assessments, performance across multiple products
  • oversee organisation agile standards, rules and policies
  • liaising with Scrum Owners on how a team is doing and potential assistance the team requires

Is there anything missing from this list or people have alternative thoughts on?
