There a big movement to encourage managers to leverage team brain power. Here's an interview about this trend and all it's benefits: http://blog.sandglaz.com/expert-interview-how-project-managers-can-leverage-team-brainpower/

"... getting your employees involved will get you to make better decisions. Now, of course there’s challenges with this because teams always have to discuss and agree. So you need to facilitate that discussion and you need to make everyone feel heard."

I've seen the challenges that come from trying to get everyone involved. In your opinion, is it worth it?

This article discusses whether or not to follow Scrum strictly. (suggesting not to). Any thoughts?

http://blog.sandglaz.com/when-scrum-is-not-agile/
Do you work in a Scrum team and think scrum sucks? Well, chances are you’re right – your scrum sucks. There are Scrum team members complaining about scrum more than ever, and scrum advocates telling them: Scrum is great. Your problem is that you’re not implementing scrum properly. Scrum states blah, blah, blah. I disagree. There [...]

This is spot on. Agile is about responding to change and adapting. The best sign of a former PMP snake oil salesman Agile Coach is an insistence on following Scrum ceremonies religiously. The key to everything is the retrospective (or however your team feeds back), and following up points raised. By the time you become truly AGILE your process will have moved far on from pure scrum into what works best for you. A true agile team could do a waterfall process and still deliver, it's the mindset that matters.

We work with Scrum as it's a good starting point and embodies the principles and manifesto but it isn't a universal panecea, if it were there would be no need for kanban/SAFe/Less or Lean, your situation is unique so you find a start and then adapt and refine, using continuous improvement.

4 adaptations to Scrum you might like!

A guide to Scrumban: Mixing some of the structure of Scrum with the loose planning of Kanban to create a methodology fit for agile teams.

http://blog.sandglaz.com/the-scrumban-guide/
Scrumban is a mix of Scrum and Kanban project management. Like both, it is meant for teams who need to embrace change; teams who acknowledge that plans and requirements change often, and it’s to their advantage to be flexible. Scrumban falls under the agile project management umbrella. Even though Scrum was meant to be lightweight, …

Want to be the world's greatest product owner? Here's what we found it takes:

How sleep deprivation is affecting our workplace and what we can do about it: #workplace #sleep
Are you hurting yourself and your company when you sleep less? Entrepreneurs boast sleeping five or fewer hours per night, but that is probably hurting companies that rely on employees’ creative and out-of-the-box thinking skills. Insufficient sleep decreases our productivity, but that’s not the end of the story: Sleep deprivation also affects our mood, our [...]
