I agree this is very valid problem. But doesn't agree with the solution: ".. to remove these individuals from the team, at least temporarily". For me it violates agile fundaments like: 
- learn not punish : why best performer should be punished ?
- self organising team : who should remove team member ?

Actually, having the exact problem in my team we solved it by peer programming to encourage "solution heroes" to educate team.

I’ve also met a few great Product ... Read More

Story
Tagline
My name is Luis Gonçalves and I am an Agile Coach, Co-Author, Speaker and a Blogger
Introduction
I have been working in the software industry since 2003, being an Agile practitioner since 2007. I have a lot of experience in integrating sequential projects phases like localization into an Agile Framework and pioneering Agile adoption at different companies and different contexts.

I am a co-author of a book called: "Getting Value Out of Agile Retrospectives". 

I have a technical background yet my passion lies at the Management side where I am a Management 3.0 passionate. 

I am a co-founder of a MeetUp group in Munich, Germany called High Performing Teams. Me and my colleagues created this group with the vision of "Define the future of Management and Leadership" . We are aiming to collaboratively generate several ideas/theories and try them out in our professional life.

I like to write and share ideas with the world and this made me a passionate blogger. I get inspiration from my professional life and from all books that I read every week. You can follow my blog on: http://lmsgoncalves.com/
