Agile is a light weight and adaptive way of quickly delivering value to business. Value is delivered through adaptive planning, collaboration, quickly responding to change and continuous improvement by self-organizing, multi-disciplinary and cross-functional teams. Adapting the Agile culture is the primary reason why it works. Based on a study on human behavior by Dr. David McClelland backed by 5 decades of data, teams who are self-organizing are more driven to perform. When we say self-organizing we mean that they have: - Autonomy - Mastery - Purpose Based on an MIT study people who are given autonomy, mastery and purpose have higher morale and productivity. A Gallup study in 2016 shows that people with a defined meaning and purpose at work results in the following: - 3x likely to stay in the company - 1.4x more engaged at work - 1.7x higher job satisfaction Team with mastery on what they do have more confidence in delivering value to business. But companies look at Agile in terms of roles and ceremonies forgetting the most important factor of production and that are the people as Peter Drucker would put it. Collaboration, iteration, responding to change, time-boxed and delivery-focus are important. But more important is to: “Build a trusting and safe environment where problems can be raised without fear of blame, retribution, or being judged, with an emphasis of healing and problem solving.” (scrumcrazy.com) - Carlos Codina, IT Head / Agile Coach, Weserve Management & Manpower Services Inc
User Stories are one of the Primary artifacts in AGILE methodology. User Stories are short, simple and user perspective descriptions of the requirements. User stories been written in a natural language so that it can describe the type of User, what they want and why. User Stories are persona based and should comply with exit criteria. An effective user story should comply with 3 C’s and INVEST. They can vary from a Large EPIC to a small User story, which can provide value to the business upon implementation. User stories are easier to read and understand when written in active voice. - Bhaskar Wunnava, Agile Coach, TCS
A product owner in a scrum team is the link between the development team and the customers/ stakeholders. They are entrusted to maximize the business value, but they carefully balances the customer outcomes in consideration of the technical debt and team morale. It is commonly thought that Product Ownership is a straight forward role in Agile process but it is not. There are challenges that somehow needs to be resolved and overcome with. There also exists deviations on the product owner role that becomes counter productive thus, can be detrimental to the agile process. These anti-patterns are now common in most organizations implementing agile. - TeofiloTed FloresII, Principal Business System Analyst/ Agile Scrum Master, Infor
A servant leader style of project management is an important aspect of agile projects and is essential to making the teams productive and thereby successful. The project manager must strive to coach and help the team members in the agile way of working and must look to energize and inspire the team. The project manager must aspire to improve the lives of team members by facilitating empowerment and creativity - Pradeep Lokesh, Project Manager - Agile and DevOps, IBM
