Is your Scrum team developing a solid set of goals for each sprint? If you are doing so how well is the team meeting the commitment?
Sprint goals are the most important first step in planning any sprint in Scrum. The Scrum team must come up with a set of goals to aspire to during the sprint. Without defined goals, the focus will land on simply achievement of completing the stories planned or a number of story points (or sizes of t-shirts or animals, whatever).
Are you misleading people about Agile, Scrum and the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe)?
This past week (and for years) I have experienced several people and even a fairly well known “agile tool space” vendor passing misinformation around about Agile, Scrum and the Scaled Agile Framework for the Enterprise (SAFe). The offending parties, in the context of their misrepresentations, are attacking the Scrum framework and the SAFe. Labeling them as processes!
To what end?
