    It would make the slide easier to read if:
    1. X and O are defined (Legend) or
    2. Only mark where the person is responsible and leave other blank.

  • On occasion the truth may be too much to handle. The team needs to deliver the truth first and always in order to maintain high visibility and to become trusted amongst management. \nWork should never be assigned or delegated. The team may have a subject matter expert on the particular story at hand, but cross pollination is encouraged. Teams should take advantage of every opportunity to learn and educate each other. Over time the team’s velocity will increase as a result. \nThe worst decision that can be made is no decision at all. Make and embrace decisions. Your leaders will thank you for it. \nTeams really should be having items signed off on throughout the iteration. When a great product owner or manager makes themselves available to you for questions etc., make certain you set aside time to regularly demo what you have internally to prepare for the external release. \nNo team can be successful without a champion to remove the impediments and assist the team in running interference. This leader should be both a champion of the cause and a great facilitator. \nRegular short meetings have proven time and time again that they are far more effective than the once weekly status updates. Keeping on top of the information daily provides for crisper communication and increased visibility.\nAll committed parties should attend every team meeting. The meetings should be short, time boxed, and to the point. (This includes the retrospective)\nThe team should set rules, define done, and make & take commitments seriously. \n

    • 11. ScrumMaster: ✤ Should be a full time role ✤ Could be a delivery team member in a pinch ✤ Used to be called project manager but: ✤ No longer has delivery responsibility ✤ Does not commit to dates, budgets, profits, etc. ✤ Is primarily a facilitator and servant leader. ✤ You will have to deal with: ✤ The era of opacity ✤ The tyranny of command & control ✤ Must be able to multi-task - run multiple sprints at the same time. ✤ Should use spare time to assist the Product Owner in maintaining and grooming the product backlog.
