Failure is always a chance for learning, right?
I recently joined a team that's been going through a lot of change: changing team members, skills, objectives, and as a result it wasn't clear who was responsible for what going forward.
I thought running the Roles and Responsibilities play would help clarify what 3 of us on the team would be responsible for.
We got started listing the roles on the team, like Product Owner and Product Marketing Manager, and after going through the play we realized we were rather aligned with the tasks.
Except what what we all thought of as the responsibilities for the roles did not match what people thought THEY were responsible for (or had the time/capacity to be responsible for).
So we had some very nice job descriptions that didn't match the actual roles within the team. 🤦♀️
Retrospectively for our team it would have been more useful to start out putting people's names and not their roles to list out the responsibilities, but that's against the recommendation of the play.
Here are my asks:
Bonus points if anyone has a team play fail they're willing to share 😉
