Technical and Marketing teams towards building customer-centric products faster
with a possibility to refine the product scope based on the market conditions.
Hi everyone, first I would like to thank you for this wonderful platform which is super rich with information.
I would like to ask a question, I was working for almost 2 years as a scrum master for an IT team and I changed my job lately and my goal is to become an Agile Consultant for different projects in my current company; I would like to know what should I do / learn to be more powerfull in this side. Of course experience will bring a lot with time and my experience is already enough for this position but I want to be a master on this side. Are there any good trainings that I can perform which will help me on this side ? I please ask you to answer my question and give me more info on how to improve ! Thank you in advance I really appreciate :)
I have just taken over responsibility as a a scrum master and although i have worked under a scrum team before for a year but i always had difficulty in estimating according to story points. So in my first prokject as a scrum master, I took a risk and though to map story points against hours and it went very well. Here is how i mapped:
Points - Hours
When i gave them a range the team was very comfortable so what i did estimated it according to the table above and in the end they all had a rough time frame then when and how they are going to complete it. I need to know that if it is feasible in long run?
I'm desperately looking for a bit of help! We are a small scrum team who recently turned agile (yay). The previous pm manager preferred using time estimations which was easy for pm's, not the agile-loving dev team. I want to teach my team how to switch to story point estimation and the major concerns of the team are - How do we explain cost to clients per sprint using points? Do we just take the budget total, divide into sprints (based on hours in a sprint) and cost this for a big project?
I have a very reluctant team so any help would be greatfuly appreciated!
Is self-assignment a purely self-directed practice or is a mix of self-directed with assistance from others?Assistance here could be from other team members or Product Owner/Manager/Team Lead/Client/Customer?
I'm currently in a situation where my organization wants to transition to using Scrum for software development and enhancements but we don't have a clear idea as to who will assume which role. Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks!
Previous conferences of Star West and the agile methodology in general have accepted the concept that testers and programmers are both subsets of the developer category. Is this still the accepted definition or are programmers the only team members that are considered developers.
