  • 9. Team (4)
    • Guideline 7:

    • the product owner guessing about what
    • will be delivered.
  • 10. Team (4)
    • Guideline 8:
    • Do not create cross-functional teams.
    • Put all the testers on one team, all the
    • programmers on another, and so on.
  • 11. Team (4)
    • Guideline 9:
    • Large projects need large teams. Ignore
    • studies that show productivity
    • decreases with large teams due to
    • increased communication overhead.
    • Since everyone needs to know everything,
    • invite all fifty people to the daily standup.
  • 12. Product Owner (4)
    • Guideline 10:
    • Don’t communicate a vision for the
    • product to the team or to the other
    • stakeholders.
  • 13. Product Owner (4)
    • Guideline 11:
    • Don’t pay attention to the progress of
    • each iteration and objectively evaluate
    • the value of that progress.
  • 14. Product Owner (4)
    • Guideline 12:
    • Replace a plan document with a plan “in
    • your head” that only you know.
  • 15. Product Owner (4)
    • Guideline 13:
    • Have one person share the roles of
    • ScrumMaster (agile coach) and product
    • owner. In fact, have this person also be
    • an individual contributor on the team.
  • 16. Process (7)
    • Guideline 14:
    • Start customizing an agile process
    • before you’ve done it by the book.
  • 17. Process (7)
    • Guideline 15:
    • Drop and customize important agile
    • practices before fully understanding
    • them.
  • 18. Process (7)
    • Guideline 16:
    • Slavishly follow agile practices without
    • understanding their underlying
    • principles.
  • 19. Process (7)
    • Guideline 17:
    • Don’t continually improve.
  • 20. Process (7)
    • Guideline 18:
    • Don’t change the technical practices.
  • 21. Process (7)
    • Guideline 19:
    • Rather than align pay, incentives, job
    • titles, promotions, and recognition with
    • agile, create incentives for individuals to
    • undermine teamwork and shared
    • responsibility.
  • 22. Process (7)
    • Guideline 20:
    • Convince yourself that you’ll be able to
    • do all requested work, so the order of
    • your work doesn’t matter.
  • 23. The checklist
  • 24. Q/A
