This chapter links the principles of servant leadership to Agile and Scrum practices, which value collaboration and equality in teamwork, to show faculty members how to lead effective and productive committees. The chapter covers how to select appropriate committee members to make well-formed cross-functional teams who have the skills and interest needed to address the committee charge. It offers advice for convening the committee for the first time, including suggestions for a committee retreat, team building activities, and a committee charter. Readers will learn strategies to help committees set shared goals, create a committee backlog, and organize the committee work using sprints. The chapter also covers specific strategies for facilitating committee meetings, including setting meeting agendas, coordinating discussions, and managing conflict and consensus.
