Impediments - From the Charlotte Class in Sept.

Here are some impediments identified in an exercise by the Charlotte CSM Class in September.

Some duplicates (or very close to), some overlaps.

May this list make your Team more creative about identifying impediments. May it lead to your Team fixing the highest priority impediment first.  Which might be: making a public impediment list.  And then working on the top item each day.

The List:
  • Personal Agenda
  • Hierarchical approach
  • Understand tasks (tasks not understood, I think)
  • Structure (too much)
  • Micro Mgmt
  • Pressure & Stress (too much)
  • Over-communication

  • Synergy issues (dysfunctional team)
  • Skill sets (Engineers & DBAs)
  • Focus
  • Resource Constraint
  • Customer Sat.
