Fear-Driven Impediments: Ralph Miarka, Marc Bless

In many cases fear is a reason for impediments of an agile team and can cause many effects: resistance to organizational change, procrastination of decisions, inability to surface the real issues in retrospectives. To successfully remove such impediments, the fears of all involved individuals must be understood. If fear is a reason to fail, it should be dealt with as fast as possible. Examples: I must not use TDD, my boss forbid it. I will be fired or removed from the team if I say ‘no’. We can’t change this specific part of the organization because team X would get unhappy.
