At the peak of sprint planning the team pledges "We commit to achieve these stories, no matter what it takes". It's a deal with the Product Owner (PO) and the team.

So why do teams commit?

The commitment is only valuable if the team thinks it can actually achieve it. Since the team is invited to pull the right amount of stories from the backlog, the PO trusts that the team makes reliable commitments based on their current capabilities and expected flow. This way the self-organizing team is challenged to constantly improve estimates, deliver value, as well as contribute ...

This evening the Berlin Scrumtisch took place in Friedrichshain. More than thirty participants followed Marion's invitation for discussions on Scrum, wine and pizza at Vecchia Trattoria.

As there were several new participants, Felix started out with a very brief summary of the very core concepts of Scrum itself: Most important to know is the basic assumption of Scrum, that is planning ahead of time in a very detailed way is impossible. Defining goals and letting those who do the actual work take the decisions on how to reach that goal is way easier and more promising. The whole process ...

Team Estimation Game

  • Start with a stack of ranked story cards. The team will arrange the cards so the smallest size items are on the left and the largest items on the right. Items with the same or similar size should grouped together in vertical columns (the same place in the left-right direction).
  • Place the first (highest ranked) story card in the middle of the table (or in the middle of the board or wall)
  • Team members take turns estimating in a round-robin manner. On each turn, the player has two options, as shown below. With both options, the player ...

Good day everybody,

I hope you are all fine and nobody is still stucked somewhere because of the vulcano (I can spell the name ;-))

Please find below date and time of the next Scrumtisch.

One Topic
I had a nice talk with Martin and Friedemann, who are working for Ableton and who are implenting Scrum right now in their teams. They agreed, to give us an overview on how they started, challanges, good and bad experiences and answering questions.

Please let me know -as usual- if you are coming.

All the Best Marion

This evening Marion organised another successful Scrumtisch: Usually we either meet for timeboxed discussions on Scrum and agile development questions or a speaker is invited to present his favourite Scrum or Lean or Agile topic.

Today Markus Frick gave a presentation of how Scrum was introduced at SAP, a German software company. They started implementing Scrum in a “small” team of about 60 people, organised in about six to seven teams. The idea was to get people together who are already sort of familiar with agile technologies and let them evaluate what works in the companies context at what doesn ...

It seems, that the guys from http://www.userstories.com are not really good in SEO ;-) But anyway the list of Scrum Tools provided on this website is the most comprehensive one.

Of course you find also our Scrum Tool Agilo there and we would be pleased if you could write a good reference for us :-)

Thanks and have fun
Marion
