Agile Coaching

Agile Coaching using Scrum in Serbia

There is software development department in your organization, or even more you are Software Development Company.

Certified Scrum Masters and Scrum Product Owners are employed because your organization applied Scrum in order to achieve agile software development and increase business value.

Your software development teams are familiar with the Scrum and other agile methodologies. Everything sounds good.

But… The truth is that Scrum is easy to learn, but difficult to master and adopt in its entirety.

Are you still faced with Scrum Anti-patterns like:

  • Product Owner & Team reach sprint planning without any preparation
  • There is no agreement between the PO and the Team about scope for sprint
  • Planning is based on tasks & not what to build (US & acceptance criteria)
  • Activities are monitored instead of features
  • Team does not commit to a clear set of sprint goals
  • Team continuously overcommit
  • Developers do not work collaboratively on user stories
  • Team integrates and tests stories only at sprint end
  • Product owner not actively involved in DBT-cycles
  • Scrum Master assigns tasks and that way destroys the self-organized team.
  • Team extends sprint when something isn’t finished, delaying demo or not having review meeting
  • Story reported but not demonstrated (non-UI, spikes, etc.)
  • Idea gathering instead of focus on near term, incremental improvements
  • No retrospectives or badly done
  • And so on…?

You are on a good way to become really agile!
