    1. 1. Luke is a young developer set out to change the IT galaxy one Agile Transformation at a time. As our hero, the apprentice Scrum Master is going out facing the trials and ordeals, his first step towards his destiny puts him in front of The Empire, a Global Investment Bank. The Empire was traditionally run in Waterfall and they are now looking to achieve greatness through Agile. Luke’s 3 teams, Gold, Blue and Rogue squadrons are lined up to assist in the Agile Transformation and Delivery. Now Luke is facing Darth, the Product Owner. Darth led The Empire’s product development since ages past, being considered one of their best Business Project Managers. Follow our hero in his daily clashes with his nemesis. Will the Force, Agile, help him overcome Darth’s strong Waterfall roots, forced persuasion skills and bullied commitment goals? Is Luke prepared to help him? The young padawan himself is still on the journey towards Agile mastery.

    4. 4. 5 Role Play Transcript - D: I thought UC Definition workshop went well, you have what you need for the Plan - L: good BL Discovery Session, we have clarity over High Level Epics - D: given these clear details, give me the deadline for this phase - L: the backlog is not clear, US not ready, more Acceptance Crit, split epics - D: AC don’t concern me, in the last phase you gave me a plan the next day - L: we had good BL, existing arch, now new module, tech solution not chosen, 3 options - D: unacceptable, my Tech Lead says specs ok, should be 5-6 sprints - L: I need team estimation session, this won’t work without more detail - D: no PokerPlan talk, I need the deadline for budget approval tollgate - L: hmm, ok, I get it, in this case… about… maybe… 9 sprints?
    5. 5. SM failed to transmit and enact the Agile Planning concepts PO ignores the lack of clarity of Backlog items Ignores Tech Solution is not chosen PO focused on getting a deadline by any means (bullying, anchoring) SM committed to a release date without clarity of Backlog or team buy in Methodology mix, terminology misalignment (use cases, project plan, deadline vs user stories, release plan)
    6. 6. SM to coach and help PO to understand Agile Planning principles Choosing and clearly formulating the delivery framework. SCRUM potentially Release Planning to factor in Backlog uncertainty Focus to identify Backlog items at risk due to uncertainty or complexity Avoid commitment based on uncertain Backlog items and without input from the team

    8. 8. 9 Role Play Transcript - L: trying to reach you, can you talk - D: was heading home, but yes - L: eager to give good news, I’ve clarified the backlog: Epics split, ready US, InVeST - D: yes, interesting, looks at watch - L: I’ve clarified the tech solution: prototype the 3 options, with your Tech Leads, looked at all implications, now technical US in BL - D: yes, interesting, looks at watch - L: with refined BL, we sized, I can now give an updated accurate plan - D: wait, 3 sprints after deadline commit you are changing the plan? - L: now with BL sizing and average velocity, RD between 16-18 sprints - D: unacceptable, 6 wks ago you commit to 9 sprints, with best practice10% contingency I budgeted for 10 sprints - L: but only now I have what I need and can project the Cone of Uncertainty and give realistic RD - D: agile mambo jumbo again, ConeU does not concern me, you failed me for last time, does death grip and kills him
    9. 9. PO does not understand the progress or what the team is working on Different interpretation of Commitment vs Release Plan and their accuracy Methodology mix, terminology misalignment (contingency, plan, budgeting cycle vs cone of uncertainty, average velocity) Expectations misalignment. Contract terminated? SM worked in isolation to clarify the Backlog and to update the Release Plan
    10. 10. Agile information radiators to support a constantly shared view over work and plan Inspect and Adapt agile pillars adopted via Planning, Review and Retrospectives Introduce Release Planning via Cone of Uncertainty and synchronize with Budgeting cycle Expectations alignment and management
