Agile teams invest heavily in automated functional tests. When done well, this investment is paid back with fast feedback enabling teams to release software quickly and often. By structuring tests in the right way, teams can further leverage this investment by using these tests as a platform for exploratory testing that could find issues a regression test suite won’t.

Agile coaches need to be able to teach the agile framework their teams will use in 10 minutes or less. No joking. Why? Because they will have to teach it hundreds of times. Every time a new team member joins. Every time a manager stands in the team’s way. And many more times besides. This video shows how Lyssa Adkins teaches the Scrum framework. Use her example as a starting point and get good at delivering your own version. Lyssa is the author of Coaching Agile Teams, a book created for agile coaches who are ready help their teams to go beyond the mechanics of agile to produce astonishing results.

This experience reports focuses on the major scrum–related technical challenges that arose during a 120 000 hour scrum controlled project. For each of them, we try to identify the cause and the consequence, and then follow up with any solutions we tried. Finally we sum up and assess whether the problem was successfully solved or not.keep looking »
