Team leadership

Team leadership

Team leadership function distributed among several team members has been considered a prerequisite for self-managing agile times [19]. In general, it is understood that team members should share the authority to make decisions, rather than having one person (e.g., a team leader) that makes all significant decisions and judgements. Thus, while the traditional perspective of organizations oriented towards a single leader suggests that the leadership function is a specialized role, in self-managing agile teams, leadership is shared. Trust is a prerequisite for shared leadership in agile teams [19]. Without sufficient trust, team members will expend time and energy protecting, checking, and inspecting one another, as opposed to collaborating to provide value-added ideas.
