Many teams grapple with the challenges of organisational wrath, not realising its profound impact on team dynamics and productivity. This wrath, often stemming from a lack of accountability, can create a ripple effect, disrupting the very core of agile principles. It’s not just about pointing fingers or deflecting blame; it’s about understanding the root causes and addressing them head-on.
Starting with a simple scenario: Imagine a sprint review where stakeholders question the team’s decisions. Instead of a constructive dialogue, there’s an accusatory tone, leading to defensiveness and blame games. This isn’t just a one-off incident; it’s a symptom of a deeper issue. The absence of accountability can lead to such wrath, affecting not just the team but the entire organisation.

The role of the Product Owner becomes pivotal here. They’re not just responsible for the product but also for fostering a culture of responsibility. Evading responsibility or making fear-driven decisions can have dire consequences. It’s essential to recognise these signs early and address them.
