ceca9711-ed3d-419e-9729-8a3d658a6c14 A few weeks ago, I stumbled across a great example of relative sizing that has stuck with me. 2017-10-31T09:42:36.000-05:00 77d82fb2-a827-4466-8a6a-cc045a2d4de7 We adopted the Agile method for one of our core banking software implementation projects, and we focused on Agile principles. Here is how we adopted Scrum against the backdrop of each Agile principle. 2017-10-30T05:35:29.000-05:00 08994602-fc8f-4607-af53-941d46fc3d3f This article is about using the power of association to link Scrum with gamification. 2017-10-25T06:37:39.000-05:00 d599f35b-c6c8-4bab-af2c-f75bf2d92057 Based on my experience working with teams and stakeholders on multiple infrastructure projects, here are some of the challenges our Agile teams have faced, along with ways to overcome them. 2017-10-24T13:19:48.000-05:00 ac89bd39-3111-466e-8e14-4a3ca584d312 Open communication assumes trust in the decision making of the entire group, and not that of just a select group. In a Lean and Agile environment, we trust that the group can make good choices, and we try to give them as much information as possible to do so. 2017-10-24T10:19:53.000-05:00 f01d590a-03f8-4c0e-8b11-970e13c4d5f9 If a team is to be empowered correctly, it must also be accountable. 2017-10-17T11:21:32.000-05:00 e1bdc596-d04d-46c2-a3fc-dfa72bd7f840 We found an activity that proved to be an engaging and memorable way for participants to internalize what the Agile Principles really mean. 2017-10-16T14:32:07.000-05:00 f66e67f6-71f5-40ca-80aa-983036d36c1b This is a discussion of large-scale enterprise Agile transformation. 2017-10-16T00:43:45.000-05:00;&19994;&22823;&35268;&27169;&25935;&25463;&36716;&22411;&25506;&32034;&19982;&23454;&36341;?feed=articles 0459db83-c2dc-4e82-89bf-cb9fbccb0581 I have experienced, through my ScrumMaster role, some ways in which that role is a differentiating factor in what makes Agile more motivating for a team than Waterfall. 2017-10-15T20:34:49.000-05:00 21be91c7-e532-4c4a-b636-ed65a2b0f51d Why do so many companies struggle with using the Scrum framework? Here are the top 10 challenges, based on my experience. 2017-10-13T07:19:08.000-05:00 63329f98-fd1f-4143-b70d-c87096d219fc 2017-10-12T12:23:46.000-05:00 c9cff666-3d83-4bd5-8ac2-d89718b2a03a I asked my Scrum Team to estimate user story A, and after a good game of Planning Poker, they came up with a number that was accurate and achieved. It felt like a great success — and that was when I woke up. 2017-10-11T09:36:20.000-05:00 c02762d6-8849-4ebc-b0ba-2e757eec6d57 Traditionally, release planning is done based on effort estimations of the requirements. But in projects for which the requirements are at a high level without enough details, it becomes difficult to create a high-level release plan. 2017-10-11T00:47:16.000-05:00 eefa4f21-be84-4c07-bc0f-bc0a14702916 One of the most valuable and often overlooked tools in the ScrumMaster’s toolbox is the Agile release plan. 2017-10-10T14:05:06.000-05:00’s-Friend-The-Agile-Release-Plan?feed=articles 5fe8cce7-8169-44a4-8656-cb758deaef34 Though there is lot of bias toward increasing velocity in every iteration (release more features faster), if there is no attention to quality, the system will soon become fragile and will not be able to sustain future scope changes. 2017-10-10T12:16:32.000-05:00 01cbad62-23a5-4d79-b1a9-4abdac782719 Agile development is based on empiricism and thus does not recommend a watertight framework for practice. The learning organization disciplines provide a foundation for practicing Agile software development. We can see a strong correlation between Agile tenets and learning organization disciplines. 2017-10-10T05:53:53.000-05:00 c8f962b5-656b-444f-b496-c1bf79e0131e In this age of rapid, easily available online learning, business agility gets extra support. 2017-10-05T02:23:14.000-05:00 c528fccf-96e1-4af2-aff3-549a603905ea As an Agile coach, you are a keen observer. You have armed yourself with all the indicators of team dysfunction. You’re prepared for anything that can be wrong with a team or needs improvement. What could possibly be missing? 2017-10-05T00:19:49.000-05:00 eaeeed56-0e05-4b32-bc2c-2e4594e7506d We have probably all heard the endless debate about whether the estimation of development work should be done in story points or in hours. . . 2017-10-04T02:48:29.000-05:00 3001a57e-d1b9-47f0-be50-53fb88249038 Like most teams, our transition to Agile wasn't as smooth as we'd hoped it would be. Here are the biggest challenges we encountered, and the steps we took to solve them. 2017-10-02T12:06:37.000-05:00 17021433-09eb-419c-9bcf-4db80a4bab55 Scrum has changed the way our team works, for the better. And I can now see clear similarities and differences among Scrum, Waterfall, and the way our family operates as a team. 2017-10-01T04:42:42.000-05:00 bbcefd77-cd1c-4ed2-8a37-24c325756d26 Leaders play a key role in the success of the organizational Agile transformation. There are specific tasks they should perform before, during, and after that transformation to ensure that it lasts. 2017-09-27T23:47:37.000-05:00 a5b3fa89-c36e-4a40-b5a5-f518d8f593b1 I believe there are several distinct paradigm shifts — major changes to processes — necessary to transform an organization to Agile. 2017-09-27T11:35:00.000-05:00 95a41add-c31d-4777-b4f1-25f594f4a1e2 ScrumMasters must develop a deep understanding of what motivates each member, in order to create synergy within the team. 2017-09-26T04:36:15.000-05:00
