We know that the Agile Project Manager’s role is important here. The Agile PM needs to motivate teams rather than individuals. He or she also need to change the Performance measurement criteria so that it compliments rather than contradict Agile values. For this to happen the Agile Project Manager shall need to trust and empower the teams’s self organization and also work with the team to determine metrics for team evaluation. The focus should always be on team rewards rather than individual rewards.

Have a great day.
