I always think being a Scrum Master is like being a legend , a Scrum Master helps the Team to understand Scrum and Agile, supports the Team to level-up technical practices, guides the Team to be self-organizing, removes impediments to the Team’s progress, etc. And to make the job even more complicated, Scrum Master does not have authority over the Team, the Team does not listen to Scrum Master (Unless Team choose to)!
If you look at all these responsibilities individually they seem achievable, but when you put them together it is very challenging for one person to execute. And the one responsibility that confused me the most was that the Scrum Master needs to “Facilitate”, and I had no idea what it meant back in 2014. Continue reading

Similar to the idea of continuous improvement in Agile Development, we believe that we constantly need to broaden our Agile knowledge. These 12 Agile blogs are the ones that I personally follow and read frequently (with no particular order).

2015 celebrates Titansoft’s 10th anniversary.

Have you ever truly considered a company’s motto and wondered how it is applied within the company?
Back when I was in school, I looked at my school’s motto at thought to myself: ‘That is some standard PR stuff. No one really bothers with it do they?’ I mean, nearly all mottoes that I have come across all state pretty much the same thing and they just lose their meaning eventually when you figure it is just common sense… right?
Coming into Titansoft, I realize that the motto matters (try saying that ten times… fast!). For you see, ‘Never Stop Improving‘ is strangely applicable into the work that I do. As an employee in Titansoft, I have experienced this firsthand… and I am not used to it.
How often do we start something with fervor but neglect to monitor the progress or even feel baffled when the project fails? We have built up a few Communities of Practice (CoP) like TiQuality and other technical communities. But how well are we doing? Getting up close with Bas Vodde, creator of LeSS framework during the Agile Tour 2015 brought us some insights on how we can improve our CoPs.

Today, I will introduce a new tool – Charter to you. Which helped me a lot to generate ET ideas in past years. (Charter concept is come from Session-based testing management)
