  3. 3. ABOUT US 3
  4. 4. WHAT HAVE WE LEARNED ABOUT REMOTE MEETINGS? 4
  5. 5. PRACTICAL MEETINGS EVENTS 5 REMOTE Checklist to determine if you need to meet: Do you know what you need to move forward? If so, proceed, if not, figure out exactly what you need before proceeding. Do you need others to make progress? If so, proceed, if not, plan your next steps and get to work. Do you know who will provide what you need? If so, proceed, if not, decide who must be engaged and who should be kept in the loop before proceeding. Is a meeting the right format? Do you need real-time interaction and synergy? If so, proceed, if not, try using an alternative form of collaboration such as email, chat, or a shared document. Thoughtfully prepare for the meeting. Reasons to Meet: Decide. Make a decision so that work can move forward. Ideate. Brainstorm a list of potential ideas, solutions, or questions for further exploration. Produce. Collaborate to accomplish a specific output. Plan. Strategize or outline steps to achieve a result. Align. Generate shared understanding of complex information. Connect. Build stronger relationships among participants. Determine the reason(s) to meet, and state the desired outcome, and goal for that outcome. Source: https://www.meeteor.com/momentum Suggested outline for remote events: Allow 5 minutes for set-up and banter. Consider doing a quick grounding exercise, e.g. box-breathing. State objective, intended outcome, and timebox. Explain agenda, chosen approach, and rules for the event. Establish pace and rhythm. Get after it! Send out notes and action items right after the event. Rules for remote events: Everyone joins from a quiet place with headphones and video on with audio muted and system set to gallery view. Only unmute and talk when called upon by the host. Signal you want to talk by raising your hand. Agree on a signal to use when you want the event to move on. Be present, or don’t be there, and agree on a mechanism to tune out temporarily if necessary. No multi-tasking! Keep focus and pace through collaborative moderation. At regular intervals, do something to (re)engage/energize all participants. Set a timer to ensure this happens. Practice Radical Candor to get, give, and encourage guidance and feedback on the event as it unfolds. Pro-tip: Remind participants a day before, on the day of, and 15 minutes before the event that it is happening and how to prepare for it in terms of tech and input.
  6. 6. WHAT HAVE WE LEARNED ABOUT REMOTE SPRINT PLANNING? 6
  7. 7. SPRINT PLANNING OBJECTIVE Determine what can be delivered in the Increment resulting from the upcoming Sprint and how the work needed to deliver the Increment can be achieved. Read more… INSPECT • Product Backlog, DoD, Velocity, Capacity, Retrospective Commitments. OPTION 1 • Keep It Sweet & Simple: Video call with all people visible, and the entire team collaborating on understanding the work of the Sprint. • Determine the Sprint Goal and the Product Backlog Items that would help achieve it. • Forecast the functionality that will be developed in the Sprint. • Craft a Sprint Backlog by discussing options for how to create a done product Increment during the Sprint. • Use Liberating Structures to maximize inclusion and engagement, e.g. Purpose to Practice, Wicked Questions, and Triz. OPTION 2 • Draw a Sprint Planning board in an online whiteboard tool such as MS Whiteboard, Google Canvas, Mural, Miro or IdeaFlip. • Have the Product Owner populate the board with Product Backlog Items that would help achieve the Sprint Goal. • Share the board with all team members and set it to allow editing by all. • The team member who knows most about an item facilitates the discussion about it. • After an item is discussed, evaluate shortly if the next item might still fit in the upcoming Sprint. Adjust the Sprint Goal accordingly. OPTION 3 – ASYNCHRONOUS • Sprint Planning by collaboratively crafting a Story Map in FeatureMap, or any other tool that allows for asynchronous communication. • Send out email prompts to make sure everyone gets to contribute. • Promote video updates in addition to text. TOOLS • Slack, MS Teams, Zoom, Google Meet or any other tool with videoconferencing. • Pointingpoker or scrumpoker. Free. • FeatureMap. €50 per user/year. • StoriesOnBoard. $228 per user/year. • Use the tools you already have! ADAPT • Sprint Goal, Forecast, Sprint Backlog. 7 REMOTE ≤ 8 HOURS
  8. 8. WHAT HAVE WE LEARNED ABOUT REMOTE DAILY SCRUM? 8
  9. 9. DAILY SCRUM 9 REMOTE ≤ 15 MINUTES OBJECTIVE Create a plan for the next 24h and identify impediments to development for removal. Read more… INSPECT • Progress toward Sprint Goal. OPTION 1 • Keep It Sweet & Simple: Video call with all people visible, answering the regular Daily Scrum questions in a disciplined, one person at a time talking, fashion. • What did we do yesterday that helped us meet the Sprint Goal? • What will we do today to help us meet the Sprint Goal? • Do we see any impediment that prevents us from meeting the Sprint Goal? • Do we need or want any help to accelerate our progress toward the Sprint Goal? • Is there anything we can do to accomplish the Sprint Goal today? • Use Liberating Structures to maximize inclusion and engagement, e.g. Troika Consulting or 15% solutions. OPTION 2 • Daily Cafe or Weekly Huddle, combine a daily event with a social call. • Start your weekly huddle with a grounding exercise, e.g. box-breathing. • High-fives all around.

The timekeeper holds up three fingers when there are 30 seconds remaining. • Ask who wants to go first in checking-in and answering the question of the week. After doing so, that person selects who is next. Check-in by telling how you’re doing and feeling. Then, answer the question of the week.

OPTION 2 • Soapbox Sprint Review: Ask all stakeholders to record a video of them using the Increment and provide feedback while doing so, e.g. with Soapbox. • Collect all videos and host a watch party with the team. • As the team watches the videos, they take notes and compare and contrast what they see and hear with their personal experience with the Increment. • The Soapbox Sprint Review can be combined and augmented with the Sprint Review Bazaar with several team members per stall in virtual breakout rooms. • After the watch party, discuss insights and adapt the Product Backlog to reflect this.

  14. 14. WHAT IS ACTUALLY NEW HERE? AND WHAT IS WORTH KEEPING? 14
  15. 15. Scrum, Beyond The Lockdown The Good, The Bad, The Ugly, and The Awesome: GOOD: Working from home is not just possible, but in most cases preferable. BAD: We tend to loose touch with each other on an emotional level when we work from home. UGLY: We tend to overwork ourselves on a regular basis when we work from home. AWESOME: The office is no longer for getting work done, but a meeting place to interact with your coworkers and to get to know them better on a deeply human level. 15
