If a shop is small, where does self-organizing come into play. If there is only one DB Admin, one DevOps Unix Admin etc...where the manager already decided what resources are required by the company.
I see the IT manager or director already deciding what is required for particular projects in an organization, putting in the requisitions for headcount, long before scrum is in play (before even a scrum master). Does scrum come into play during hiring when the team is being recruited? i.e. Catch-22. Does it say anything about before the team exists?
