Establishing a "Common Language" on a Scrum Team

January 6, 2022
Words matter, especially when working in any team setting. Words that are spoken or written by one person can have different meanings when read or heard by another. Scrum Teams have multiple members, which means the interpretation of words used in the team setting increases with each member. The chances of misinterpretation also increases. Shared understanding among members is needed to reduce complexity and provide greater clarity. So the need for a "common language" becomes critical to produce value every Sprint. Create your own playbook to help your teams and organization develop their "common language". In this Scrum Pulse webinar, Professional Scrum Trainer John Riley  demonstrates some theory and components behind a "common language". Words and phrases become less about jargon and more about shared understanding. You will also see some techniques to use in developing a team's common language, and how this language helps a team create artifacts. Some of these artifacts include Product Goals, team agreements, and Product Backlog Items.

Using Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) in Scrum

September 1, 2021
Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) act as goal-setting framework for defining and tracking objectives and their outcomes. OKRs are often misunderstood and are a powerful practice to create razor sharp organisational focus. Isn’t Scrum about goals and focus as well? There is the Vision, the Product Goal, the Sprint Goal as well as the Sprint Review. These elements of Scrum can be very well combined with OKRs. Actually, you might want to turn it around, start with OKRs and map your Scrum implementation to them. In this Scrum Pulse webinar Professional Scrum Trainer Ralph Jocham with Agile Actors #learning  gives a quick intro to OKRs, and you then you will learn how Scrum can benefit from using OKRs to create a network of responsibility from the vision down to individual Sprint Goals. This responsibility network offers a transparency most corporations long for.

Should A Project Manager Become A Scrum Master?

June 22, 2021
This question comes up often: “I am a project manager and our company is moving to agile or Scrum, does that mean I will now become a Scrum Master?” In response, we hesitate and then give the unwelcomed answer of “It depends.” And it really does depend. The Scrum Master role is deep and wide. Scrum Masters need to support their teams while working with the rest of the people in their organizations to build awareness and enable greater agility. A Scrum Master’s job is not to manage a project or deliver status reports — duties that people associate with the role of a traditional project manager. As a matter of fact, Scrum Masters may not get involved in status reports at all. In this webinar, Eric Naiburg, COO, Scrum.org, will discuss the potential move to an agile way of working, the role of the Scrum Master, and what that means for people currently in the role of Project Manager.

The Power of Stories

April 20, 2021
Stories have a powerful impact on humans. Most of us have a favorite story. This can be a book, a movie, a play, an opera, or something else. We can remember details from stories that surpass most of the facts we can otherwise keep in our mind. And yet in a professional setting we often use facts to transport information and learning instead of stories. In this webinar, Professional Scrum Trainer Peter Götz discusses why this is wrong and how it can be improved. He will share where he is using stories and what effects can be achieved when we tell each other stories instead of facts.
