If an Agile team is self-managing, then what's the manager supposed to do?

When a leader stops micro-managing, and truly empowers and trusts the team, they will have ample time to do what an Agile leader should be doing.

A high-performing Agile leader:
1. Understands and works to continually improve the system
2. Hires awesome people and then mentors and coaches them to assist them with their career goals.
3. Provides the tools, training, and environment the teams need to be successful
4. Shields the team from unnecessary outside distractions
5. Removes roadblocks

This session explains these 5 Agile Leadership responsibilities, with specific examples and concrete ways to successful carry out each one on a daily basis.
