The daily standup is a key Agile practice. Since the latest Scrum Guide release, it has changed and become less rigid than before, no longer relying on the key three questions. In addition, for teams running Kanban, the daily standup can take on a different form.

An Agile Roadmap to Reduce Resistance and Accelerate Your Team’s Acceptance of Agile Transformation

Have you ever wondered why innovative organizational leaders and high-performing developers, product designers, UX specialists, etc. - who are otherwise excellent at what they do - are slow and hesitant to adopt Agile methodologies? Agile transformation is a hot topic right now, but many organizations rush the implementation process without pausing to assess and address foundational issues. The truth is, new hires or new Agile teams aren’t entirely convinced that Agile methodologies can support their expertise and simplify their day-to-day tasks. They perceive Agile transformation as “just another thing” their company is trying and are reluctant to commit. In this workshop, I’ll present a road map that will help agile practitioners and executives interested in agile transformation identify the root cause of resistance of new Agile teams and new hires. We’ll also look at the challenges Agile evangelists such as Scrum Masters, Agile Coaches, and POs face in implementing these methodologies. The goal is to get all Agile stakeholders aligned with a company’s or a product’s vision and reframe how Agile is seen and used by everyone involved. After this interactive presentation, Agile specialists, executives, and product owners will know exactly how to facilitate Agile transformations with a culture-first approach, supported by coaching, mentorship, and the right kind of accountability (avoiding micromanagement). The result? Teams who truly believe in the potential of Agile methodologies and continue to incrementally incorporate them in their work without resistance, thus accelerating their learning curve.

by Barbee Davis, MA, PHR, PMP, PMI-ACP, PMI-PBA

Question: I am going to head a team on a large, corporate project that will involve multiple teams.

The Hungry Man Parable

by Rich Mironov

In agile product development, we try to work on fewer things and stick with them until we finish. Rapid priority shifts are expensive and demoralizing. But that’s not always clear on the go-to-market side, so we need stories like the Hungry Man Parable to build better understanding.

Topic Teasers Vol. 138: How Agile and Traditional Teams Hitch Up

by Barbee Davis, MA, PHR, PMP, PMI-ACP, PMI-PBA

Question: We are starting a project that is part hardware and part software driven. The organization has asked me if we want to use a traditional approach or a more flexible version like agile. It seems to me that the production line would benefit more from one and the IT team might do better with another. What do I recommend to management about what our team wants to adopt to move forward?

What About Sprint Creep?

by Bart Gerardi

Scope creep can plague projects where timelines are established at the start, or budgets and resources are fixed. However, it should not be a problem for projects operating with agile principles. Rather than resisting change, an agile team welcomes it, and figures out how to adapt to it. Here's how.
