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

Scrum in regulated environemnt



Anyone has any real life experience to implement Scrum in regulated environment, to be specific in life science domain? I'm struggling to understand how we can adopt agile values where the process has to comply with FDA regulations that seemingly coming from waterfall concept?

Any link to research papers, text or personal experience will be appreciated.

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.

Stop Prefetching Stories

I am advising my clients to stop prefetching stores that they know they can’t complete in the current
sprint. They argue that they are idle anyway. I argue that they should find something else to do like read,
innovate, speed up the build, add new tests, or play ping pong. Part of the problem is their stories are too
big and we are addressing that. But I’d like some eloquence around as many supporting arguments as I can
develop. Suggestions? 

Michael

TDD for new team



Hi, I have one question about TDD for new team.


I know TDD is a great tool to have deliveries with high quality, but what should we do until everybody learns it. In your experience, how long does it takes in average for someone produce unit tests with quality?



I've got a new project with a new team, and none of them knows TDD. Basically, all of them have no experiences with any similar to unit testing. They are trying to learn it, for real, but so far unit testing they are doing is quite poor. 


There are some points they test to much, other points they forget. To make it harder, contract demands a test coverage percentage and it's been quite hard for them to focus on quality, not just quantity.


thanks, Daniel

TDD effectiveness



HI,

In one of the recent projects, it was found that many of the defects were related to inadequate unit testing though the code coverage goal was getting met. As an improvement initiative the team is thinking of using TDD. But before making that decision, would like to know if there are any case studies that suggests TDD indeed helps in reducing UT defects. 


Thanks,

Pooja

Activity Based Workplaces (ABW) and Scrum



Hi All,

I'm interested in hearing if anyone here has any experience with Activity Based Workplaces (ABW) in general and in combination with agile software development and Scrum in particular? I know of teams that work well distributed but my snap response to not having a common work area for a Scrum-team is that we're making it harder for them to succeed, even if they're still on the same floor. So what could the possible gains form working in an ABW environment be and what are the drawbacks? What would be absolutely necessary to make it work for an organization doing Scrum or should they refrain from it completely?

Cheers!

/Morgan
