Moving the mastodont

More and more I see companies who want to work with frameworks like Scrum but fail in getting it right. The more I look at why this happens the more obvious it becomes for me that the larger the company the more the challenge. And sometimes it is even impossible to get it to work. …

You need to have a SIT

So how do you get things to move within a larger organization? As I mentioned before just hiring an Agile Coach doesn’t do the trick. He or she can only bring change on those parts where people are willing to change. But it is just like a Chinese plate spinner. Once you have the first …

Be the change

People hire me as a Scrum coach to help them to make changes. Often these people work at companies that want to work with an Agile Framework, often Scrum. In many cases when I have the first talks about the how’s and why’s. I get most of the information I need as a coach to …

Have fun with Lego

It’s not the first time I write about this. Maybe I’m very enthusiastic about this. Maybe I just want to tell you about this because it is plain and simple fun but very effective. Doing your meeting with Lego. As a coach I help people to see things how they are, either good or bad. …

Agile Scrum. What else?

Probably the first indicator that lets me know as an Agile Coach that people don’t really know about the Scrum Framework or the Agile mindset is the way they describe what they are doing. “Yes we do Agile Scrum”. Every time someone tells me that they are doing Agile Scrum the small hairs at the …

To Scrum or not to Scrum

A good colleague of mine came up with a good idea. Or better said, a good mindset. For a while now in Scrum there is something known as Scrumbut. It’s like the Pino in Prince2 (Prince in name only). We Scrum….but.. and then the excuse why you are not fully doing Scrum.  “We are doing …

The myth of estimation

One of the trickiest parts in Scrum is estimating the entire Product Backlog. Often I’m asked to do this or to help Product Owners to do so. In almost every case management, the CEO or the customer demands it. Why would they want this? They want to know when everything is finished. And by estimating …

A dog will guide you

We probably all know a little about the term DevOps. It is said to be the next best thing. Where Scrum doesn’t provide, DevOps does. Basically it’s nothing new. The goal is to maximize the predictability, efficiency, security and maintainability of operational processes. And this objective is very often supported by automation. Now Scrum does …

Shit Bad Scrum Masters say

I know we can laugh about this but you might be surprised what I encounter sometimes in real company situations. The truth is sometime more horrifying than you might see in this classy video. If you have seen it, have another laugh, if you haven’t. Watch and learn and really think if you see something …

Think universal

We people need an end to things. We like to see where we are going, and we want to round things up. Yet we like to talk about continues integration and delivering software as a service and not as a product, at least when your mind is set to agile thinking and collaborating. Every year …
