    Thanks Roy,

    an inspirational talk it remained of the Hersey’s and Blanchard’s situations leadership model ties in with Tuckman’s model in how the leaders change leadership styles from stage to stage, the Forming - Storming - Norming – Performing - Adjourning model.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Best regards

    Fantastic presentation. I enjoyed it very much. A question, however, involving team structure. Given the flat nature of agile teams, is the team lead equivalent to the Scrum Master?

  • Good, thanks!

    Thanks so much for your presentation Roy. We just completed our first project with me as the Team Lead. It was a bit of a learning curve as I've never ran a Software Development Team before (I've had experience running teams in other areas).

    As a Senior Developer it's a big step up to being a Team Lead. I had felt a little lost as to whether I was performing "correctly" and your presentation has given some great pointers.

    BTW - I love the "I am the bottleneck ninja!".
