Situation: Team lead graduated from the company and previous team practices, i.e. scrum and retrospectives, are also discontinued since no one stood up to the position. Now, team is less enthusiastic and juniors feel helpless at work. I figure this is the time to act but is clueless on what or how to.
Revamp scrum and retrospectives? Truth is, I am not a fan of scrums since I am not good at interruptions. Gotta confess that one day, I proclaimed, "Let's not have scrum today" and so it was set on stone. I am thinking that maybe we are losing the true essence of these practices. Its not just a group of devs waiting in turn to say their tasks for the day, isn't it? Please enlighten us on these.
I'm also thinking of mentoring sessions, though I suck at that, but I strongly think it will help the team. Its a hurdle. So please can you also advice on mentoring, pair programming and such.
Leadership sure is hard.
Thanks in advance!
