Forming, Storming, Norming and Performing for Agile teams

September 28, 2021
In a recent class, a student asked, “What are the common difficulties teams face when starting with Agile?”  To  answer this question, I refer to the Tuckman Model of group development. Psychologist Bruce Tuckman discussed team performance in his 1965 paper, Developmental Sequence in Small Groups, introducing the four phases of team dynamics.  He labelled these phases "forming, storming, norming, and performing.” For Agile teams, the goal of the Scrum Master or Agile coach is to get teams through the first three phases (Forming, Storming and Norming) as quickly as possible so that the team can get to Performing.  In this article, I will discuss the tools that are used at each phase of the Tuckman model to coach teams towards peak performance.

Living the Scrum Values in the Age of Remote Working

The past 18 months have been a whirlwind. Coronavirus, elections, inequality and conflict – a quagmire of micro and macro complexities that impact the feelings and behaviours of Scrum Teams.
