Question description

The following resources may be helpful when completing this assignment.

Determining how to build a high-performing agile team, while managing conflicts, is a considerable task for any agile coach. In this assignment, you are asked to explore and discuss various conflict resolution methods and determine when and how to use them as an agile coach. You must discuss the techniques in a context of an agile project team environment with various scenarios, and must also demonstrate how you can turn the high-contention situations into high-collaboration situations. For example, the project team has consistently encountered changes of scope by the product owner. The QA team also emailed the whole team on how poorly the developers have done in their coding. The developers escalated to their manager about the documentation errors done by architects. 

Write a four to five (4-5) page paper in which you:
  1. Identify and evaluate at least three (3) conflict resolution techniques that can be used by the agile coach to change the dynamics of the team in the example provided. 
  2. Summarize at least five (5) common causes of conflicts in this team and analyze why agile strategies can be applied to resolve those conflicts. 
  3. Analyze the pros and cons of conflict resolution techniques and their usefulness in at least three (3) different situations (e.g., levels of conflicts).
  4. Suggest at least three (3) strategies for an agile coach to use conflict as a catapult to achieve high performance. 
  5. Recommend at least five (5) best practices for collaboration and cooperation within agile teams. Justify your response for each best practice with an example.
  6. Use at least five (5) quality resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and similar Websites do not qualify as quality resources. You may use the resources above or others of your choosing.
