  • Sorry for being a bit off-topic here but I think this is an interesting discussion. The Scrum guide does not say exactly how a PBI should be expressed or that all PBIs must be expressed in the same way. There seem to be some disagreement in the scrum community whether all PBIs must have direct business value or not. Some say yes, some say no. The PO is responsible for ROI and to...

  • Great work! I like the changes in the updated guide. Is the open assessment on scrum.org updated to reflect the changes in the scrum guide? /Fredrik --- In scrumdevelopment@^$1, "kschwaber" wrote: > > Jeff and I have updated Scrum and will be releasing it by August 1.

  • Kurt, Slightly a bit off-topic but still applies I think. If I understand you correctly both the PO and the dev. team are happy with the current process which is more written than verbal communication. To convince the team to start communicating more I think you need to point to the possible negative effects that their current process has. What problems are visible with the current...

  • Dave, The Scrum Guide refers many time to "value", i.e. but do not use the specific term "business value". E.g. "...delivering products of the highest possible value". It has been revised several times since you took your course. Is it hard to decide what has the highest value? Absolutely, but that's a different question. If you are only building features, how do you ensure that...

  • Andrei, Could it be a lack of communication between the PO and the dev. team during the sprint? There should be no surprises for the PO at the sprint review and the PO must work with other stakeholders to collect and understand the requirements before they are included in a sprint, so that the PO can answer questions from the dev. team. Is there a problem that the review results in...

  • Charles, Why are you asking? Are you looking for examples of where scrum or other frameworks fail or succeed? To me waterfall, scrum or any other framework cannot fail or succeed, only the organisations trying to adopt them. You may have a higher probability of succeeding with scrum over other frameworks, but that's a different story. Fredrik --- In scrumdevelopment@^$1, Charles...

  • Charles, Thanks for the advice. I think part of the challenge is to have people think in terms of a team and not individuals. Currently when we estimate we unconsciously assign stories and tasks to individuals which limits flexibility /Fredrik --- In scrumdevelopment@^$1, Charles Bradley - Scrum Coach CSM PSM I wrote: > > Fredrik, > > Assuming you want to break down the silos... a...

  • Hi Steve, Intimidated, yes for sure, at least sometimes which I can fully understand. I mean, to admit that the same programming task would take me 4 times longer than for the more experienced developer is a little like saying "I suck and I know it". This is assuming that they both understand the work that need to be done to accomplish the task. Problem with just guessing is that...

  • I'd like your thoughts on the following. The skill level of developers in our team varies a lot. Something that would take the most experienced programmer one day to complete could very well take the less experienced developer 4 days, if not more. Further, there's a history of working in silos, where developers have been responsible for their specific parts of the product. If a new...
