Conflict within a Scrum Team can happen. Lyssa Atkins describes in her book ‚Coaching agile teams‘ five levels of seriousness of the conflict:
- Level 1: Problem to solve
- Level 2: Disagreement
- Level 3: Contest
- Level 4: Crusade
- Level 5: World War
She recaps Speed Lea’s framework which helps to become more objective. Lyssa also says that determining the level of conflict present on a team is no rocket science. It’s observation, conversation and intuition.
What makes is so fascinating that team member is experiencing the conflict from different levels.
What are your experiences ? Is it like Lyssa describes ? Is it helpful to categorize it in the way like Speed Lea did ?
