We offer you with a pragmatic consulting in Scrum and agile program management. Pragmatic because it is important for us to understand your unique needs and challenges and coming up with the best way to be agile. Consulting and Coaching go hand in hand. Along with hands on facilitation and program management we also bring coaching into your journey.
While coaching teams, we start with understanding their unique story. Individuals and organizations are all different and one size fits all does not work in dynamic organizations. Some teams have the experience of working together for long while some other teams are fairly new. Some organizations have a commitment to being Agile, Some are not there yet. Some Scrum Masters are Passionate, but for some it is just another Job. The challenges can be different, but the bottom line does not change; Building High Quality Software that is released frequently.
We understand that there are debates around agile; But for us agile is about building products and not winning debates. it is about continuous improvement. We should be pragmatic in order to Be agile.
We think it is OK for teams to have their own version of being agile as long as they adhere to the core principles and Value Propositions of being agile and if it works for you in delivering high quality product Increments frequently.
The question how ever is how are you improving continuously. If your focus is to release workable software more frequently out of the door then rest of the process debates can be worked on.
And there will always never ending debates and questions on how to estimate, or if you need an estimate, how to size a story, what is an Epic, How do you manage releases, Should Product Owner attend a meeting, Can a PM be a Scrum Master and on and on and on.
Bottom line however is, Are you able to ship high quality workable software out of the door frequently?, that’s what matters in the end. If you are not, then that is from where you should start and build up.
Agile Scrum is a simple framework but very tough to Master. At PenPositive we coach you by joining in your journey and building your definition of being agile. Send us a note…
