Episode 127: YDS - How Do You Facilitate the Daily Scrum without the 3 Questions?

Today's question is from Jodie who wants to know about alternatives to the 3 questions when facilitating the Daily Scrum. We are always happy to take questions about the Scrum Events. Todd and Ryan discuss the lean metric "item aging" and how it can be used to help a Scrum Team gain insights into the progress of their work. What is your favorite way to facilitate the Daily Scrum? Let us know in the comments! And don't forget, it's not the daily standup or the daily standup meeting...it's the Daily Scrum! // Want to learn more about Scrum?

Episode 126: YDS - Why Won't the Developers Attend the Daily Scrum?

A past student left us a comment in our Slack channel asking how to get the Developers on their Scrum Team to attend the Daily Scrum. This is a common issue that many Scrum Master's face. Fortunately, it is an easy problem to solve. Watch as Todd and Ryan break down this situation and expose many of the common reasons that Developers do not attend the Daily Scrum. One common reason is that the Scrum Team had allowed the Daily Scrum to become a status meeting. Status meetings are boring. We'd skip them too! // Want to learn more about Scrum?

Episode 125: YDS - Sprint Backlog vs Product Backlog - What is the Difference?

A recent student asked Ryan and Todd to talk about the differences between a Sprint Backlog and a Product Backlog.

The Sprint Backlog is a representation of present work while the Product Backlog represents future work. Check out the video to learn even more ways the Sprint Backlog and Product Backlog are different. // Want to learn more about Scrum?

Episode 122: YDS - Who Attends Product Backlog Refinement in Scrum?

97: PSM II An Advanced Scrum Master Course

Dave West (@davidjwest) joined Ryan Ripley (@ryanripley) to discuss scrum.org’s new offering:  PSM-II – An Advanced Scrum Master Course.

[featured-image single_newwindow=”false”]Dave West CEO of Scrum.org[/featured-image]

Dave is the CEO/product owner at Scrum.org. He is a frequent speaker and widely published author of articles and his acclaimed book, Head First Object-Oriented Analysis and Design. He led the development of the Rational Unified Process (RUP) and worked with Ivar Jacobson to run the North American business for IJI. Dave managed the software delivery practice at Forrester research where he was VP and research director. Prior to joining Scrum.org, Dave was chief product officer at Tasktop, where he was responsible for product management, engineering, and architecture.

Professional Scrum Master II (PSM II) is an advanced course helping students to understand the stances that characterize an effective Scrum Master and servant-leader while diving deep into how they serve the Scrum Team, Product Owner, and organization. The class then teaches students about related practices and skills to enable them to have the right types of conversations and how to apply them to become better Scrum Masters.

I’m personally excited about this course. PSM-II is a mind changer and is what?s needed for the world to get to the next level. I am excited for how much I will learn by teaching this course and for the immense impact it will have on improving the profession of software delivery.

I (Ryan Ripley) am teaming up with fellow Professional Scrum Trainer, Todd Miller to teach the PSM-II this year:

[callout]After decades of research, world-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol S. Dweck, Ph.D., discovered a simple but groundbreaking idea: the power of mindset. In this brilliant book, she shows how success in school, work, sports, the arts, and almost every area of human endeavor can be dramatically influenced by how we think about our talents and abilities. People with a fixed mindset?those who believe that abilities are fixed?are less likely to flourish than those with a growth mindset?those who believe that abilities can be developed. Mindset reveals how great parents, teachers, managers, and athletes can put this idea to use to foster outstanding accomplishment.

[callout]Accountability. Transparency. Responsibility. These are not words that are often applied to software development.

In this completely revised introduction to Extreme Programming (XP), Kent Beck describes how to improve your software development by integrating these highly desirable concepts into your daily development process.

The first edition of Extreme Programming Explained is a classic. It won awards for its then-radical ideas for improving small-team development, such as having developers write automated tests for their own code and having the whole team plan weekly. Much has changed in five years. This completely rewritten second edition expands the scope of XP to teams of any size by suggesting a program of continuous improvement.

84: Ryan Ripley on the Scrum Master Toolbox Podcast

Ryan Ripley (@ryanripley) recently joined Vasco Duarte (@duarte_vasco) on the Scrum Master Toolbox Podcast to discuss Agile Coaching and working with teams.

[featured-image single_newwindow=”false”]Vasco Duarte – Scrum Master Toolbox Podcast[/featured-image]

I had a lot of fun recording this episode with Vasco. We covered the very broad topic of agile coaching. I really liked that we were able to deep dive agile coaching and discuss how it ties back to Scrum Masters and their role on Scrum Teams. I really wanted to make the point that coaching is a career path and a difficult one at that. Ultimately, we are here to reveal insights about the systems of work without resolving them. To me, this is the highest form of coaching. I hope you enjoy this episode and give Vasco’s podcast a try.
