In today’s workplace, everyone has their specialization, their niche, what they are known for. It can be difficult to encourage individuals to see how being cross-functional and learning new skills can help the team be great at Scrum. In this presentation, we are going to discuss how you, as a Scrum Master, can assess your team as they are, diagnose where cross-functionality will benefit them, and get the buy-in needed to encourage teams to be cross-functional.
