Looking for Change [1 Attachment]

[Attachment(s) from Rakesh Pandey included below]

Hi Friends,

I have started looking for change, so reaching out to your all, who know me and can vouch for me.  I am looking for opportunities and Project / Product / Program / Portfolio Management or as Business SME, in IT Software / ERP / CRM areas.

I’ve progressed through my career, excelling in every phase of my career and wore a lot of different hats throughout my career including Leading India Software Delivery Center, Product Manager, Project Manager, Business SME, Business and System Analyst, Trainer, Coach, Mentor, Developer, etc.  I had been recognized for exceptional dedication and contribution towards work on several occasions at various organizations I had worked.  I hold recommendations from my Directors, Managers, Colleagues and Customers, who made me feel proud by vouching my achievements.

I’m looking for a position where my contributions count and my efforts make the difference – and hopefully a long-term commitment. I would welcome the chance to discuss my experience with you in greater detail.

Please refer to me for suitable opening and positions and feel free to reach out to me for any questions.  You may reply to me on this email (reply to me and not to the group),  and call me on +91-9810112234.  Attaching my resume if you need to go through my Experience and other details.

Regards

More critical views on SAFe




I'd like to highlight a couple of recent additions to the (moderately to mostly critical) views on SAFe:

http://xprogramming.com/articles/safe-good-but-not-good-enough/
http://danielgullo.tumblr.com/post/80172140950/safe-spc-training-a-reflection
http://cognitive-edge.com/blog/entry/6238/safe-the-infantilism-of-management/
http://www.innovel.net/?p=451

I want to give a public thanks to Ron, Daniel, and Dave Snowden for their recent reviews.  They are all excellent!  As many of you know, I don't think SAFe is Agile and don't feel like it has a net positive benefit to the industry in the long term.  Full disclosure of my bias!  If anyone else has similar reviews, feel free to let me know.  I'm collecting them on my web site.

My full list on my site:

Handling small change requests



We're maintaining a website.  Our releases are comprised of 1 week sprints.  It used to be 2 weeks but the amount of work required is frequently small enough that a release can be done in a single 1 week sprint.


During the UAT phase, we often get requests from the client to make a small tweak then release to production.  At this point we've closed out our sprint(s) and are sometimes on to the next release.  It seems silly to plan another sprint of 1 day, but at the same time, I don't want to revert to making ad hoc changes.

What's the best way to handle this situation in agile development?

Matt

Should user story AC include validation of stated benefit?



What is your opinion on acceptance criteria for stories including some means of validating that the functionality achieves the stated benefit? For example, in the story "As a commenter, I want a larger textarea, so that I can see the entire comment at once before posting", should the AC include some validation of that benefit?  Some folks on my team want to limit the AC to things like "textarea is 20% larger", or "textarea is sizeable", saying that any validation of the actual benefit (e.g., AC: <commenter> can see as much of his comment as will fit on the screen) would make the story unsizeable due to subjective evaluation.

thanks,

Peter

Re: Design Thinking and Scrum

In context with this discussion. I have a question to the group. 

We have two stories which are ready for UAT and it is part of the definition of done. The person who does UAT is
our product owner. In her absence how can we get the credit for these stories? 

Any thoughts?

Thank you,
Phani.

Tools for Drawing Software Development Process



Hi,

I would like to draw the process my team currently follows from identifying a business need through to deployment of working software.

My goal is to identify bottlenecks with the team, and resolve these problems in the spirit of continuous improvement, perhaps even getting so far as to bear some passing resemblance to Scrum.

I believe visualising the process we follow may help this.

Does anyone have any recommendations for tools that can be used to draw a business process?  I can draw on a whiteboard, but it'd be nice to see where we came from, and the steps we took.

Many thanks,

Dave

P.S. any other comments, including that I'm barking up the wrong tree, are welcome!

Reference story for estimation



Hi,

 

We use reference story for estimation using story points. So its basically relative estimation in story points.

But is it a good idea to change reference story for each sprint?

Do we keep on changing reference like this?

 

Regds,

Sharmila
