Habits of highly effective scrum masters and product owners #3 Conformance to the Organizational velocity

Like the sprints have velocity, organizations also have velocity. Removing impediments highlighted by the teams must be resolved as fast as possible, else the sprints can fail. For resolving these issues, one has to work through different stakeholders on whom the scum master, product owner do not have direct control. Sometimes they become bottlenecks and sprints fail, if the organizational decision making velocity is low. If we go faster than the rest of the organization, we may go and hit someone who is going slower than you. It is more like travelling in a traffic jam. One may like to speed up, and if the speed is more than the vehicle before, an accident is almost certain. So, is the case with organizations and teams.
