Abstract:The purpose of this study was to explore the temporal nature of individual contributions to socially shared regulation. The focus was on regulatory activities and participatory roles people play out in Scrum meetings and their relationship to successful team decision making. By means of camera recordings we analyzed the regulation activities and roles team members play out in five Scrum teams. Chi-square tests and a process mining method called 'Fuzzy Mining' were used to interpret the data. Results show that team members often follow up on each other's regulation activities and only seldom change activities within a discussion. Less change in regulation activity is found in effective decision making than in ineffective decision making. However, effective decision making is accompanied by a more varied distribution of participatory roles than ineffective decision making. Further, the distribution of roles varies among regulation activities and decision making instances.
