Each person took turns placing a sticky note on the appropriate place on the diagram and explained why they chose that spot. The next person could place their sticky note, or move a note if they thought it was incorrectly placed.
Some things we discussed:
3 scrum roles:
- Product Owner- owns Product Backlog and responsible for ROI
- Scrum Master
- Development Team
- Stakeholders-provide input to the PO
- The Sprint is an event (FKA ceremony). So is sprint planning.
- The Definition of Done is set by the development organization or team. It's the standard of quality.
- You don't have to use user stories in Scrum!
- Another event is the daily scrum stand up. It's the opportunity to inspect and adapt on the sprint goal.
- Acceptance criteria is from the business perspective. The Definition of Done is from the technical perspective.
- The 3 pillars of the empirical process are transparency, adaptation, and inspection. Scrum is built on the empirical process.
Ideas for Action/Next Steps:
- This is a good exercise for established teams to reiterate principles.
