The Team Onion

The Team Onion is a model to keep teams small, break down silos and create shared responsibility across team boundaries.

The Team Onion describes the benefits of working in small teams and the challenges in large organisations with many functions that need to collaborate. The model is a way of helping collaboration between small teams and the rest of your organisation to lead to successful delivery. 

The model was first introduced on Emily’s blog as the Agile Team Onion in May 2016.
