How to Manage Agile IT Teams

According to Jurgen Appelo, author of Management 3.0: Leading Agile Developers, Developing Agile Leaders, many agile initiatives don’t succeed due to a lack of effective management. He offers a number of tips for Agile managers, including the following:


  • “Managing agile teams is enhanced by understanding of the science of social complexity ? the study of dynamics created within groups of people.”
  • “Teams must be internally motivated to pursue agile goals, not by extrinsic rewards.”
  • “Timely feedback for agile teams is critical. The less you delay praise/constructive criticism of a task, the better you reinforce your vision.”
  • “Positive conflict ? meaning internal tension that sparks debate, competition, creativity within teams ? is a driving force of agile management.”
  • “Encourage an environment in which team members feel free to propose ideas and take risks without fear of facing professional consequences should things go awry.”
