- Current in vogue phrases and what they really mean.
One of my scruffy climbing and outdoors mates is a Scrum Master (I still don’t know what he actually does) and talks about agile delivery and uses all the bollox speak you expect from Londoners, doesn’t get out of bed for less than £800 a day, 5 bedroom detached house in Beckenham and yet he’s as ordinary modest and down to earth at home and around his pals as you could ever wish for from what on paper should be a complete city tosser. I love him for the fact hes remains exactly the same bloke he was when he was poor and thumbing lifts to get to climbing weekends in North Wales. He now makes those trips in a very ordinary car and still great friends with, by his standards, a bunch of total Northern losers.Posted 4 months agohols2Member

As described in the Scrum Guide, the Scrum Master is responsible for promoting and supporting Scrum. Scrum Masters do this by helping everyone understand Scrum theory, practices, rules, and values. This Scrum Master learning path provides a structured guide to help you understand the role of the Scrum Master with a way to continue learning on your journey as a Scrum Master.
The learning path is organized by a set of Professional Scrum Competencies which each contain a number of focus areas. Resources are laid out in a prescribed order, however it is your journey, so follow in the best way that helps you learn.bikebouySubscriber
I both like and hate AGILE. I like what it’s supposed to do, but hate that it’s pushed onto every situation by managers who don’t really understand its limitations in small teams.
Thats why we use a combination of Waterfall for the Strategic stuff and Agile for the Tactical and Dev stuff.
Agree on some PM’s not understanding the methodology. My CISO has no idea what Agile is apart from “working more flexible and multitasking”

The big company I work for has gone from waterfall to agile delivery of everything and I mean multiyear longterm investments. Quite how the hell that works is beyond me. I kid you not they are actively searching for unicorns, wtaf.
Everyone in the company has attended agile training and you need to conform or your marked as a non believer. They are trying to make a very traditional company (oil operator) more flexible but hell it’s funny. I work from home now mostly!Posted 4 months agofootflapsMember
The SW team at work is Agile, but they still seem to follow the waterfall work flow, plan something completely inappropriate, spend years working on it and then deliver a broken crock of shite which doesn’t do anything useful. They have scrum masters and everything…..Posted 4 months agosam_underhillSubscriber
All too many companies think they are doing scrum by going through the motions of the ceremonies. When you actually look at it they are still basically in a waterfall world.Posted 4 months ago
Agile needs trust and competence from both product owners and the delivery teams for it to work. As soon as you don’t have that it will fail to deliver.mogrimMember

I’ve been on a fully “agile” project since xmas, and tbh it’s great. We tell our client how much work we can realistically do in a “sprint” (4 week development+delivery period), we do it, and then we start again. Happy client with regular deliveries of software with new functionality, happy developers with realistic targets and realistic delivery dates. There’s a bit of marketing/management bull**** to live with, but the overall experience has been very positive. YMMV of course 🙂Posted 4 months agofossyMember
I’m lost and I’m a Chartered Accountant. I assume this is all techy bull, as all the consultant’s deliver is crap systems. Our place has a new super fantastic system, that doesn’t work. Farkin great, as it’s lost us a shoot load of money as it doesn’t work. Guess who has to look after the ‘losses’….Posted 4 months ago
