Addressing Your Agile/Scrum Challenges 

Fixing What is Broken & Maximizing What You Have Educational Workshop  (8 PDUs) 

Presented by Neil Potter

Do you have any of these symptoms:

  • Poorly defined backlog of requirements — little clarity about what the need is, what to build or test.
  • Overcommitment — each sprint is bursting at the seams with incomplete work flowing from one sprint to the next with no predictable release date.
  • Chronic technical, resource and customer surprises that consume the team.Customer and management 
  • delivery expectations not accurately set or met.
  • Chaos (a smokescreen) is used to avoid accountability.
  • Agile feels more like a sweat shop than the new cool way of developing systems.

In 2016, The Process Group polled 450 people and two-thirds were not happy with their Agile implementation. They experienced chronic chaos and quality problems. One-third were meeting deadlines with few quality problems.

There is a huge difference in the practices used by the teams that do well, and the teams that are challenged. The difference will be the subject of this seminar.
