DOES THE TEAM NEED TRAINING WHEELS?

US
It has been more than a decade, but I vividly remember when I got my son his first bicycle. I spent more than an hour in the store trying to make sure it was exactly what he wanted. I zeroed in on a silver-framed, single-speed BMX-styled bike with a hand brake for the rear tire. I also walked out the door with a matching helmet and a new set of training wheels. It was a week before his birthday, so I had to keep it hidden until the big reveal with the family.

The ScrumMaster Personalities

The ScrumMaster role is a complex one. When personalities are at stake, there’s no right or wrong personality generally — but there can be a right or wrong one for the situation. Sometimes a personality rises to better help the team. But be careful: Too many different personalities originating from the same person may confuse the team. Tricky, isn’t it? Let’s examine some personalities that we may find mastering Scrum Teams.

The Importance of the Sprint Goal for the Success of Scrum

I have often seen Scrum Teams struggling to come up with a sprint goal during the sprint planning meeting, or they underestimate the importance of having a sprint goal at all. This happens more with teams that are new to Scrum, but it is also the case with experienced Scrum Teams. Multiple factors are behind this anomaly, which is also an antipattern for Scrum Teams.

Managing project managers when adopting Scrum

For the past few years, I’ve being working with a great group of people to implement an Agile project in a non-Agile organization. After much struggle, we secured the sponsorship needed to work as an Agile team that follows the Scrum framework. It is a fantastic journey, full of challenges, victories, and defeats. And it is all worth it.
