Scrum Team Tune Up

Scrum Tune Up Workshop

Many companies or teams say they have adopted Agile methodologies or are doing Scrum and may think they are doing an efficient job, however, when we analyze their performance we can see there are deficiencies in their process and areas of improvement. On the other hand, some teams know they are underperforming when it comes to implementing Agile processes, but they don’t know why or where the roadblocks are occurring. The Scrum Tune Up workshop is designed to be hands on workshop where our Agile coaches will assess your team’s work and performance and find the specific processes that are causing roadblocks in the entire Scrum cycle. Our coaches can help your team fine tune the Scrum processes that they are lacking skill in. Common roadblocks include requirements development, story mapping, estimation, backlog grooming, writing user stories, release planning, task breakdown, or distributed team collaboration. Many times we find that the roadblocks come from a misunderstanding or lack of skill and knowledge of certain scrum roles such as Scrum Master or Product Owner who may not be entirely comfortable with his/her tasks.
