Agile.vs.something or the other.
On second thoughts, let's not call it a "cookbook" but
And now have "risk mgmt", perhaps we can use it in the
context of Scrum?
This is situation that I've been through sometime ago.
I was a coach for a team (six good men) implementing
Scrum for the first time. We planned the first sprint
(4 week), and things went well for about a week. It
was important to show good progress to the higher
After about a week, the PO pushed off on leave
(holiday) for 2 weeks. Then just before he returned
the Scrum master took a week off, and so did another
team member a bit earlier. Ofcourse this impacted the
performance of the team for the sprint. They did quite
OK. However these exptended holidays of 3 people
during the same sprint was a nasty surprise. Actually
these people knew they were off on leave, jsut no one
thought it important enought to announce! (I know
amazing) These leaves were not taken into account
during the sprint planning. I think had we done a
quick risk assessment (ie rsk mgmt) we would have
Now I am writing a small (one or two pager) Scrum
implemnetation guide for the company, so they can
think of things to cover while they run their sprint.
Like, all team member udate on significant leaves to
they are about to be taken that month. I am calling
this a "Scrum-running Guide"
What's your opinion on this. Should I circulate such a
guide for the benifit of the company. To a wider
public, or is it not such a good idea? Will this make
Scrum more codified/prescriprive/"cookbookish"!?!
yours in doubt
