Scaling Scrum



Jeff Sutherland and I are concerned. Many organizations are now trying to scale Scrum to larger projects and to entire organizational units, reaping the benefits they have seen in smaller Scrum initiatives. 


Unfortunately, there isn't a lot of guidance on how to do this. This has given rise to IBM's methodological response to DevOps, and to commercial one-size-fits all methodologies like SAFe and DAD. 


To read more about how we intend to fill this need in a manner consonant with the Agile Manifesto and the principles of Scrum, I refer you to a blog I wrote at Scaling Scrum. span>

[ANN] CfP Agile Spain 2014 -- 4-5 December 2014, Barcelona, Spain



Hello,

I'm sending you this email on behalf of the organisation of Conferencia Agile Spain 2014 (CAS2014). CAS is the main agile conference in Spain. This is the 5th edition of the conference and we would like to make this edition memorable. 

Historically, the target of CAS was mainly spanish people with a technical background and had around 300 atendees. This year we would like not only to make it more international by inviting people from other european communities, but also to double the number of attendees. 

Furthermore, we'd like to also reach the management layers from traditional IT spanish companies, so that we might help them change their minds and start thinking that Agile might be a good way to be more successful and humane companies.

In order to achieve these goals we are trying to bring the best speakers we can. Right now Jurgen Appelo, Bjarne Bogsnes and Sandro Mancuso have confirmed their participation. We also have proposals coming from other very well known people from Spain and abroad. But we'd like to raise the bar even more by bringing more awesome people to the conference, both as speakers and as attendants.

That is why we are asking for your help. 

It would be an honor to have you in our conference and it would be even better to have you as a speaker.

You can find more information about the conference here: http://cas2014.agile-spain.org/en/

Thank you very much for your help.

Best regards,
CAS2014 Team

[ANN] ACCU Conference - 21- 25th April 2015, Bristol, UK



Hi all,

I'm sending this on behalf of Jon Jagger, the Conference Chair (and I truly recommend the conference).

We invite you to propose a session for this leading
software development conference.

We have a long tradition of high quality sessions covering many
aspects of software development, from programming languages
(e.g., C, C++, C#, Clojure, Erlang, Groovy, Haskell, Java,
Javascript, Python, Ruby, etc.), and technologies (libraries, frameworks,
databases, etc.) to subjects about the wider development environment
such as testing, architecture and design, development process,
analysis, patterns, project management, and softer aspects such as
team building, communication and leadership.

Sessions are usually tutorial-based, presentations of case
studies, or interactive workshops, but we are always open
to novel formats.

Pre-conference workshops are all day.
Main conference sessions are 90 minutes.
This year there will also be 15 minute sessions
(ideal for less experienced speakers).

Proposals about specific products and technologies will be taken
under consideration only if they are open source and available
for free (at least for non-commercial use). If you are interested in
talking about a proprietary technology, there is the possibility of
"sponsored sessions" which are presented outside the standard conference
schedule. Please, email conference <at> accu.org for more information.

Financial assistance is available to all 90 minute speakers.
Details are available on request.

To propose a session please email conference <at> accu.org the following information.
* Title (a working title if necessary)<br>
* Type (tutorial, case-study, workshop, etc.)<br>
* Duration (day/90/15 min)<br>
* Speaker name(s)<br>
* Speaker biography (max 150 words)<br>
* Location (where you live)<br>
* Description (approx 250 words)

* All submissions will be acknowledged by email within 24 hours.
* The Call for Papers lasts 5 weeks and will close at midnight
  Wednesday 5th November 2014. Remember, remember, the 5th of November...
* Acceptance/rejection emails will go out on Wednesday 17th December 2014.
* The full conference schedule will be announced Thursday 1st Jan 2015.

The conference has always benefited from the strength of its programme.
Please help us make 2015 another successful event.
Thank you!

Too few ScrumMasters



Hi,

 

We have run a number of Scrum teams for a few years and have been expanding. To help support this we had plans to increase the number of ScrumMasters in order to keep the number of teams per ScrumMaster to three or below.

 

Unfortunately, a couple of ScrumMasters have now left and we find ourselves seriously short. We remain committed to Scrum and will recruit to fill positions but are looking at our options over the next three months. Some of these might be:

 

-          Ask teams to choose a temporary ScrumMaster from their ranks and ensure those chosen create enough time

-          Keep existing structures but exercise extremely light touch ScrumMaster-ing (one ScrumMaster responsible for six + teams )

-           Have the most experienced developer in the team become an XP style coach

 

I’d be interested in any experience / suggestions you might have to share.

 

Thanks, Mark

Agile Accounting - we like to interview you



Terry Quan (a friend of mine who is an expert at Accounting) and  I are writing a white paper on Agile Accounting. If you are working with your Finance department to capitalize your (Agile and non-Agile) Projects, we would like to talk with you. Specifically, we would like to talk to those that have to propose projects to corporate accountants and finance people. We would like to ask them the process of proposing  projects, and the impact of capitalization on their proposals, and what pressures they experience on this issue throughout the project.

We will maintain confidentiality. If you are willing to share your story, please get in touch with us.

Thanks,
Terry and Ram

Proud Moment

" <SCRUMDEVELOPMENT <at> yahoogroups.com>
X-Mailer: iPhone Mail (11D257)

It was a wonderful moment right in the middle of training week, applying theory to a real situation. The team
was being shown a story they thought was too big during a look ahead meeting. The Architect, who in this
client's universe is part of the PO team, argued it couldn't be split. One of the most junior people on the
team simply asked, "Let's look at the acceptance criteria," and sure enough, there was a natural vertical
split available. Love love love. 

Anything is possible with an empowered team.
