Motivation is often cited as the issue #1 when it comes to failing projects and similarly often taken as a given in agile projects. What can you do if you feel that your team isn’t entirely motivated?
I’m Barbara Dravec and here’s my journey with an agile project team that very early on pointed out that they fear “some project team members” lack the motivation and drive to complete the project.
Motivation is a multilayer concept. Since Daniel Pink’s fantastic compilation “Drive” that lays out the vast field of motivational research and related topics it’s possible to navigate the topic for a non-psychologist agile coach like myself. I’ll provide some helpful tips and tricks, methods and concepts how you could go about dealing, improving and solving motivational issues with agile teams.
