Newbies’ Guide to Scrum Project Management 101

Scrum” is a phenomenal subject – i.e. if you are familiar with it. As an Agile project manager, I have seen my fair share of so-called “Scrum Masters” and “Agile Experts” claiming to be masters of their craft. The truth, however, is that they don’t know a lot of things about Scrum and Agile. In fact, I was surprised that some of the “experts” didn’t even know that Scrum Master and Product Owner are not the same individual. Introduction – Why Scrum?

Questioning Agile Dogma

How can the same principle be a good idea in 2002 and a bad idea in 2019? Zombie Scrum describes the impact on delivery teams. To prevent the Zombie Scrum or Delivery Trap phenomenon, our operational model keeps planning, execution, and tracking coordinated horizontally across dependent Delivery Teams and vertically through the Portfolio, Program, and Delivery levels. One of the roles or functions of the Product Manager is that of Product Owner, in the Scrum sense.

Half Agile Isn’t Real Transformation

Leading Agile

For example, a Basecamp 2 organization serves a market that can absorb change every few months, with a product line that is relatively predictable and stable, while a Basecamp 5 organization operates much like a lean startup, running experiments in the market and requiring the ability to turn changes around in a matter of days or, in some cases, even minutes. Tech Infrastructure != A Metaphorical Journey.

Slack, Flow, and Continuous Improvement

Leading Agile

In Lean terms, what you’re experiencing in those games (and possibly in your real work, too) is a high level of work-in-process or WIP. When we’re deeply involved in our work, we get into a state of flow; not Lean-style flow , but Czikszentmihalyi-style flow. Of course, that will affect Lean-style flow, too. That’s defined as a form of “waste” in Lean Thinking. In Lean Thinking, this is called “buffer management.”

Skill Sets, Flow, and Transformation

Leading Agile

This corresponds in a general way with the Lean notion of focusing on flow. Are there aspects of the canonical Scrum model that work very well at Basecamp 2, but that interfere with flow once we try to operate at the Basecamp 3 level? You’ve become proficient with novice-level Scrum, running two-week Sprints and delivering predictably against your Product Backlog. “Doing Scrum well” could be a starting point, but it isn’t the end game.

So if you’re new to this or perhaps you’ve kind of been using it in a couple of different veins, maybe you’ve been part of a scrum team or you’ve watched it happen around you, or maybe you’ve seen a horrific implementation of an agile process, it isn’t necessarily the methodology, but sometimes you have to think about your culture, the environment, and what you’re trying to do.

DDSTOP The Saga Continues

I worked a program , as VP Program Management, that had a simple goal - remove all the nuclear waste from a weapons production plant and send it to secure storage, clean up all the normal hazards and send them to their assigned disposal sites, uninstall all the infrastructure (heating ventilating, communications, and security) while 5,000 people were still working there and no one died along the way. It can be a complex as a scrum or scrums strategy map in SAFe 4.2
