How self-training of new colleagues relates to Scrum process



  • When people are speaking about Scrum, it is mostly about changing of existing structure to this method.

    Is there some place in this method for new workers who should first "load" tons of information in their heads before they really can start working? And, of course, nobody is there to drill them; they have to find everything out by themselves.



  • When looking at a group of workers we see the work it took for them to be in the team, they necessarily had to "load" tons of information in their heads before starting to work, or else what lead you to hire them?

    In the original paper describing Scrum, “subtle control” is noted to be one of the six principles.

    Selecting the right people for the project team while monitoring shifts in group dynamics and adding or dropping members when necessary. “We would add an older and more conservative member to the team should the balance shift too much toward radicalism,” said a Honda executive. “We carefully pick the project members after long deliberation. We analyze the different personalities to see if they would get along. Most people do get along, thanks to our common set of values.”

    You can control who you put together and what's the goal for that team. If the requirement you use to decide placing someone in the team involves going through that documentation initially, so be it. There's also space for training or coaching, if you find that necessary.
