  1. 1. SCALING Scrum<br />
  2. 2. My Background<br />I am Development Team Manager of Vantage Dhaka.<br />I am working with Scrum teams at Vantage for last one and half years.<br />I used to work with a number of Scrum teams at Therap prior to my current job.<br />
  3. 3. What is Scrum?<br />A proven agile process for Software Development, and other creative team work.<br />Yes, I have had my 5 minutes of glory in SQABD Lighting Talks 2 talking about it.<br />
  4. 4. What’s new since SQABD Lighting Talks 2<br />After using Scrum for more than one and half year, we feel that we are on the right track to take it to the next level by Scaling Scrum.<br />
  5. 5. Focusing on our local teams<br />Leaving the Enterprisyjibberish.<br />Focusing on our local teams, where we may typically have 3 to 10 Scrum teams in an office.<br />
  6. 6. Scaling Scrum<br />Can be easily address by havingScrum of Scrums<br />
  7. 7. In a regular daily Scrum for a team<br />We address:<br />What did you do yesterday?<br />What will you do today?<br />What obstacles are in your way or slowing you down?<br />We prefer not to have technical discussions during daily Scrums.<br />If technical discussions pop up during Scrum meetings, it is an indication for a dire need of a separate time boxed technical meeting to solve the issue.<br />
  8. 8. How SoS team forms?<br />Each team selects their representative for SoS, it is not necessarily the scrum master, and the role can rotate time to time.<br />Usually the person is technical contributor. If the number of teams is small (like three/four), each team can send two members, scrum master and a technical contributor.<br />Scrum of Scrums meeting is not necessarily to be done on a daily basis. But for distributed teams, it may be useful to do it daily.<br />
  9. 9. In SoS we address:<br />What has your team done since we last met?<br />What will your team do before we meet again?<br />Is anything slowing your team down or getting in their way?<br />Are you about to put something in another team’s way?<br />
  10. 10. SoS Backlog<br />After answering previous questions, we can address the SoS backlog which is a common context for all participating team members.<br />
  11. 11. SoS continued…<br />Generally on daily scrums we tend not to discuss technical issues, or talk about solving a problem. In SoS, if a problem is identified and the right people to address that problem are together, they should address it then and there. A problem that has risen to the attention of the scrum of scrums meeting participants is often a significant problem that could be affecting the work of up to 100 people.<br />The scrum of scrums meetings can be scaled up in a recursive manner.<br />
  12. 12. Any Questions?<br />?<br />
  13. 13. Looking for Super Stars<br />We are looking for passionate super star developers who will share similar enthusiasm with our existing teams at Vantage Dhaka.<br />If you have it in you, please contact me at: <br /><br />
