There was some chat last night about introverts and Scrum, which may seem to favour the extroverted character. This is something I’ve worried about for a while. I self-identify as a ‘functioning introvert’ myself and I was surprised to hear other Scrum Masters say the same. Yet there was also some criticism of the ‘rock star developers’ who don’t work well with the rest of the team. They are frequently the most brilliant individuals but can drag down the performance of the whole team by making independent decisions that they don’t communicate; wasting other people’s time.
How does agility cope? Are they extreme introverts or just bad team players? How do you fix the problem? I thought it would be interesting to get opinions from devs as well as Scrum Masters.
