6 Reasons Why Self-Organizing Teams at Bridge Stay Unique And how they help you win!!!
‘Self-organization’ is not just a trendy term for us in Bridge Global. Being an extremely Agile organization, the self-organizing attitude runs in our lifeblood!
Bridge Global believes that all the Bridgys should have a greater sense of purpose and a higher degree of self-actualization. This objective is achieved in the best possible way by promoting self-organizing teams. The empowered team structure has helped Bridge in having the following traits:
• High client satisfaction
• Superior output
• Improved morale
• More socially responsible attitude
• Enhanced collaboration and unity
• Better overall performance
The existence of our self-organizing teams has indeed made the transition towards flat organizational structure a smooth affair for Bridge.
What Makes Our Self-Organizing Teams Unique?
1. Spontaneously-Evolved Teams
The self-organizing teams at Bridge are the result of a gradual evolution. They did not happen through any deliberate decision on a fine morning.
Bridge wants the client-dedicated project teams to keep abreast of client’s requirements in a very precise way. It also wants the clients to fall in love with Bridge by offering early and continuous delivery of valuable software.
It is a known fact that self-directed teams will be highly attentive to client needs. Therefore, these teams have evolved out spontaneously as a means to be client-friendly and customer-oriented.
Our Scrum Masters do an incredible job in educating every Bridgy about the significance of collaboration and self-organization.
2. Independent Teams
“Knowledge workers have to manage themselves. They have to have autonomy”. Bridge ardently endorses this statement by Peter F. Drucker, Father of Modern Management.
The self-organizing teams at Bridge are autonomous/independent teams. These teams facilitate an evenly-distributed decision making process. They stay true to the Agile idea that “self-organising teams choose how best to accomplish their work”.
Team members with the relevant skills and expertise know how to organize themselves to complete the work items in the most effective manner. With adequate exposure to client needs, they are better informed and qualified to find the best software solutions.
3. Need-Based Teams
Besides client-dedicated project teams, Bridge has a variety of teams according to different requirements. After the fulfilment of each mission, the respective teams automatically cease to exist. If the mission is of long-term nature, new interested Brdigys can join the teams voluntarily.
The first self-organizing team known as the BIP Team (Bridge Improvement Plan Team) originated out of the need to make Bridge an employee-friendly and transparent entity. The go-getter Bridgys contribute their ideas, time and energy in making Bridge a highly proactive organization.
4. Flexible Teams
The independent and self-organizing teams at Bridge are highly flexible in nature. Teams are formed around motivated individuals. Team members are nourished with the right environment, support and trust. This enables each of the Bridgy to think and act in terms of the overall benefit of the organization, rather than their personal achievements.
5. Cross-Functional Teams
Being a firm adherent of Agile Scrum practices, the self-organized teams at Bridge are cross-functional in nature. Instead of having teams of testers, teams of developers, teams of analysts etc., our self-organizing teams comprise collective skills or cross-skilled individuals. Each of the team has all the skills required to turn Product Backlog Items into a potentially releasable increment.
Constant collaboration and cross-functional trainings promote formal and informal exchanges between departments and functions. Our teams disrupt typical silos of traditional disciplines.
The cross-functional teams at Bridge are able to deliver working software regularly. They easily fine-tune and improve their process based on client feedback.
6. Teams Equipped with Adequate Mentoring
Our teams are self-organized with the best possible mentoring and support from Bridge. The teams know the best ways to accomplish their work within the set of constraints. They are self-sufficient and are not essentially in need of directions or supervisions by others outside the team. The Scrum Masters give adequate coaching on self-organization and cross-functionality. The organization empowers the teams and removes obstructions standing in the way of self-organization.
Principle 11 of the Agile Manifesto declares, “The best architectures, requirements, and designs emerge from self-organizing teams.”
Yes, we at Bridge abide by this golden rule and promote our self-organizing teams to give our clients the best software solutions.
