Anti-Pattern:Controlling Facilitator

Also Known As:
Warning! Patterns are not a concrete methodology, and using only documented patterns is a sure fire way to destroy creativity and innovation. More here.

Pattern Summary:

  • A facilitator controls the meeting very tightly
    • Might call out the name of each person before they talk
    • Might quiz the person several levels deep to go further on “what is holding them up”
  • Controlling Facilitator can be a Scrum Team member OR a Non Scrum Team member.

Possibly Good For:

  • No contexts are currently documented for when this anti-pattern might be possibly good for a Scrum implementation.

Possibly Bad For:
