In this presentation, I explore many common Agile transformation issues and what you can do about them. I cover challenges with customers, technical process, organizational hurdles, prioritization, agile requirements, etc. Some of the topics include:
o No single Product Owner in Scrum.
o No on-site customer for Extreme Programming.
o The user stories are too big.
o The user stories are too vague.
o Bug count is going up or not going down.
o Customer/Stakeholders/PO never choose technical stories for next iteration/sprint.
o Customer/Stakeholders/PO won't take the time to prioritize their backlog.
o Even though story points match prior velocity, there seems to be too much work.
o Stand-up or Scrum meetings take forever.
o Stand-up or Scrum meetings are short, but no one talks about real problems.
o Management doesn't value removing impediments quickly.
o Velocity seems to be slowing down.
o So many hoops to jump through that it takes forever to get anything done.
