Perhaps you need a bit more Waterfall – 8 DON’Ts in Agile Transformation

(此文章中文版『敏捷八不』發表於 Funevo)

“When the Great Tao prevails, the world is shared by all.

The worthy and capable are chosen as leaders, trust is fostered and goodwill is cultivated. Thus, people do not only regard their own parents as parents, nor do they only regard their own children as children. The old are cared for until death, the adults are gainfully employed, and the children are nurtured. Widowers, widows, orphans, childless seniors, the disabled and diseased are all taken care of. Men have their proper roles, and women have their families. While people hate to see a resource thrown away, they do not necessarily keep it for their own use.

Not contributing one’s efforts is abhorred, the same as devoting them purely for one’s own self-interests. Therefore, conspiracies do not thrive; robberies, thefts and criminal activities do not occur. And so, there is no need for doors to be shut.

This is called the Great Unity.”

And the majority (more than 80%) would answer, “a Scrum Master is a facilitator.” Probe deeper, and you’d get “…of Scrum events!” (Never let it be said that Titaners miss the obvious) Well, as with many things in life such as the tragic case of a Hawaiian pizza with only one measly slice of pineapple, that answer is 100% correct and yet, it is not the full picture. Let me share with you a brief overview of what it is exactly that Scrum Masters do in Titansoft.

Facilitate Scrum events as required

Yes, Scrum Masters facilitate the events in a sprint. Their main responsibility is to be actively “idle” – once the ball has started rolling, to know when to take a step back and let the discussion continue organically. Not all events require the presence of a Scrum Master. Without a Scrum Master, Scrum team members (such as a product developer or product owner) can proceed to take the place of facilitator in sprint planning, product backlog refinement and sprint review.
