Team profiles


After years of doubt about finding a way to work effectively, with less stress due to the recurrent bugs spinning back from my customers, I finally plunged into the lean/agile world.

I can tell now that by using agile methodology, I found a way to work with most of the current human profiles I meet in my professional life. Team work, definitely means something in this weird software world where communication has not always been a common asset.

While reading the "team management profile" chapter of the "Agile Teamwork: The Leadership - Self-management Dilemma" article, I tried to remember several professional events where each profile was involved.
Then, I was wondering if I could give some preference to a few profiles when building team or if I would prefer to have them all.
Personally, I really don't want to have defeatists with me nor the type described in this article.
I can see that the self managed team minimises each individual behaviour type, but I don't know why yet.
