Most agile journey teams I've worked with seem to have trouble integrating web authors. From what I've seen, they don't really fit into the major 'buckets' (dev, qa, design/ux) and can be unintentionally overlooked or marginalized. Anyone have experience here? What did or didn't work?
Some issues I've seen include:
authoring stories squashed into last few days of sprint due to dev time
lack of communication in hand-off from dev to authoring
lack of clarity whether defects are for dev or authoring
inconsistent amount authoring work
authors attached to multiple agile teams at the same time
Can anyone recommend the best next steps(sites/ blogs etc) to build my knowledge? I find agile rather confusing but the video above has cleared up some the basics (I have a traditional Project management background and want to get into software development)
I just started a new job, where they use Version One. My previous jobs have all used TFS. One thing I noticed at my new job, is they have some confusion on what stories have been approved by the business. Currently they will shoot out an email and get approval replies back.
My question is this: is there a way to set a new field to have a SME name and a field to approve? I know we were able to do this is TFS (choose a SME with a drop down if the requirement is approved or not) and I'm hoping I can help stream line their process a little bit.
we have created bttr an app to make retrospectives simpler.
Features - Teams - Sprints - Cards - Grouping Cards - Voting cards - Sprint rating - Cards are anonymous - Actionable items on cards - Private mode. You can only see your cards until it's turned off. - Cards view is real time - The app is a PWA so you can add it to home screen on iOS and Android.
We would like to get some feedback from you. If any of you wants a trial account don't hesitate to contact me through DM.
During the retrospective event, Tony, a developer expresses concern about interferences from VP with the new work in the middle of the Sprint. Vignesh, another developer sends MOM after the meeting to everyone mentioning Tonys concerns copying VP. As a Scrum Master, what actions do you take?
A. This may lead to an absence of trust causing dysfunctions. As a Scrum Master, work with the team to craft working agreements on what to be shared and what not to be shared to create psychological safety to foster openness.
B. Actively do nothing. Team decides how they work together. It's upto them what to share and what not share.
C. Talk to Tony about his concerns and take it up with VP
D. Pull up Vignesh for sending emails to everyone mentioning internal discussion and coach him not to do it next time.
F. Facilitate scrum team to decide how to deal with such interferences in future
There are some drawbacks of enterprise configuration management which are listed here. Test Environment Management is a process which is required in every software testing platform. All these problems, issues are temporary.
