Govern the Delivery Team

This ongoing process goal describes how we will govern an agile or lean delivery team well. Effective governance is based on motivation and enablement, not command and control.  To be effective, we need to consider several important questions:

  • How will our team provide transparency to our stakeholders?
  • How will we regularly determine how we will move forward as a team, if at all?
  • How will our team support milestones, if any?
  • How will our team demonstrate our work to our stakeholders?

Governing an Agile Team

Most of the strategies/practices referenced in the goal diagram above are described, including the tradeoffs involved and considerations for when (not) to apply them, in the book Disciplined Agile Delivery (DAD): A Practitioners Guide to Agile Software Delivery in the Enterprise.
