Good day, everyone!
My physical therapy session got rescheduled to today, so I couldn't be as productive. However, I did find this really nice resource for Scrum!
I found these Scrum Comics talking about how pretending to follow Scrum is not going to make a company Agile. It was really an interesting read, and I learned a lot about common mistakes of Product Owner role assignment as well as inefficient structures of larger companies that failed to implement Scrum.
Anyway, moving on to my daily report!
I learned about case scenarios user stories are not suitable for. I also reviewed about what happens when a Sprint is canceled as well as the three pillars of Scrum.
Here are the things I learned and worked on today:
- I read Why Scrum Isn't Making Your Company Very Agile.
- a Product Owner is different from a "Team Output Owner."
- a Product Owner should be more like an entrepreneur that is focused on business objectives rather than just one team's objectives.
- it is best for businesses to only have one Product Owner for a product so that the PO has authority over the entire Product Backlog.
- a single Product Owner also increases the transparency of the Product Backlog and promotes empiricism.
- in larger businesses that are not Agile, developer teams are not in touch with clients.
- finished my practice flashcards for Scrum (need to switch to another resource).
I wish everyone the best!
