Re: [scrumdevelopment] Re: Daily stand ups
- Hi Brett,
Thanks! This insight was really helpful for me in advising an existing- and a potential customer. I build a blog post around it: "Digesting Change".
I think one thing to keep in mind is that there is no 800-page
playbook for Scrum or Agile [I do not have Ken Schwaber's book in
front of me to check exactly but I know Mike Cohn's books top out at
under 300-pages. ;) ])
All jokes aside, what we have are a set of principals and a set of
practices. In isolation, a given principal/practice provides certain
benefits. When combined, I think collectively we would all agree that
the whole becomes more then the sum of the individual parts.
One challenge that I have continually come across when introducing new
principals/practice s is the flow rate. To much flow and people start
to choke. To little, and they don't get to that "a-ha!" moment.
So CJ ... I think your challenge is in part to figure out the right
flow rate for your organization. It gets tricky since different flow
rates might be needed for different levels (team vs. management) and
different individuals (intellectually curious + ready to self-organize
folks vs. those who really just want to be commanded + controlled).
Good luck and let us know how it goes!
