In Agile methodologies, the features represent a chunk of functionality that delivers considerable business value and fulfills a stakeholder need. Features are a collection of user stories.
“A Feature is a service that fulfills a stakeholder need. Each feature includes a benefit hypothesis and acceptance criteria.” source: © Scaled Agile, Inc. https://www.scaledagileframework.com/features-and-capabilities/
The Scrum Guide doesn’t provide any reference to Features. As the products became more and more complex and more and more teams adopt Agile methodologies, there are indications of who defines the Features.
In the Scaled Agile Framework, the Product Manager owns the Features. That doesn’t mean that…
By having a manager position, people think I’m super effective, get everything done, I never forget anything, and my workday is perfectly organized. But the reality is that I’m struggling a lot with keeping myself focused and achieving my daily goals. My solution is to rely on the Orli ToDo bot for Discord to get my work done.
Do you feel like you have many things to do? The day passes, you work hard.
But at the end of the day, you don’t feel like you achieved a lot.
You still feel stuck, lost, with a mountain of things to…
A product owner is the one that leads the product development. A Product Owner needs the perfect mix of vision, excellent execution skills, technical understanding, and client management.
The Product Owner or PO is responsible for the definition and design of a product. As an agile methodology expert, he/she links the business part (good business vision) and the project’s technical aspect. He must carry the vision of the product. He is the interface between the user, the Scrum Master, and the development teams.
We live in the digital era. In this era, technology advances at the speed of light. The…
As agile is getting more and more popular, many non-development teams want to give it a try. This article will guide you step by step how to get started.
One of the mistakes I often see teams doing is assuming they need to start with Scrum and sprints.
Another mistake I see is that teams take their existing way of working and simply add a daily meeting and a planning in the best case.
But the real power of Agile is in rethinking the work in way that put business value first and manage to deliver usable benefits early and…
One of the main things you need to get to grips with when working remotely compared to onsite is being much more detailed than you ever were previously. You can leave no room for reading between the lines, or just assume that someone will get what you mean by what is implied. You need to have everything nailed down and written to the last letter. You cannot expect someone to act on something that has not been precisely defined. Writing everything down is the only way to ensure everything can be tracked at any given time towards completion.
The Product backlog represents the prioritized worklist that the Agile team will do.
In Agile, we deliver incrementally. At every increment, we must see progress. When we define the Backlog, we’ll keep that in mind.
Half a baked cake may not be enough to feed a wedding party, but it’s enough to taste and leave everyone looking forward to the rest of the cake. — Jeff Patton in User Story Mapping: Discover the Whole Story, Build the Right Product.
It might be hard to get started with your first Agile Backlog, and here’s what you need to know:
If you are in the position of having more demand than you can deliver continuously, then that’s a sign that you must scale your agile teams in your business.
The first step in scaling your Agile teams in the company is that everyone in a management position spends at least 20% of his/her time in strategy.
How do I find time for business strategy to Agile Agile?
You got a successful product, but you would like to have more time for taking it to the next level of its growth.
How do I scale my agile teams?
The right question…
Once upon a time, there was a manager — Mike. Mike has excellent technical and business understanding. He knows very well his team, what to do, how to define tasks, and how to split the work. He’s the most senior person in the room, and everyone listens to him.
Here comes me, the person who’s been coaching teams to achieve impossible project objectives for more than ten years. I worked with many managers and teams worldwide, and I’ve seen a lot of leadership styles.
When I first start to work with a team, my first objective is to get them…
Comme l’agilité est de plus en plus populaire, de nombreuses équipes de non-développement se demandent ce que l’on peut essayer. Cet article vous guidera pas à pas dans vos premiers pas.
Une des erreurs que je vois souvent commettre les équipes est de supposer qu’elles doivent commencer par Scrum et les sprints.
Une autre erreur que je constate est que les équipes prennent leur mode de fonctionnement actuel et ajoutent simplement une réunion quotidienne et un planning dans le meilleur des cas.
Mais le véritable pouvoir de la méthode Agile est de repenser le monde du travail de manière à…
