Atlanta Scrum Users Group Message Board › Outstanding Iteration Managers needed
I also posted this in the Agile Atlanta group. I apologize for the duplication, but I want to ensure I cover the territory.
Tired of Scrumerfall? Scrum-but?
“Doing” agile but not “being” agile?
Banging your head against the wall in adapting agile within a waterfall ecosystem?
My team is agile through-and-through – from project management to engineering practices. We own our ecosystem.
We’re in need of a couple of strong iteration managers.
+ Well-funded start-up
+ Ruby/IOS technical environment
+ Agile done right (not scrum or XP, but generic agile)
+ Co-located just north of the Perimeter
+ Great leadership
+ Comfortable with ambiguity
+ Not dogmatic about methodology
+ A servant leader mindset
+ A deep belief in individuals and interactions over processes and tools
+ Outstanding facilitation and collaboration skills
+ Ability to deal with conflict
+ Kanban/Lean exposure
+ a preference for inspect/adapt and small experiments
+ agile experience in multiple environments (e.g. domains, approaches, stacks)
+ a list of failed as well as successful experiments and some insight into why
+ passion for your craft
+ a sense of humor and a desire to build a great team
Things I might hear to indicate this might not be a good fit:
- “the only way to manage an iteration is to break stories into tasks and estimate them in hours”
- “a product owner is not allowed to add a story to an iteration”
- “the difference between a burn-up and a burn-down is that the former goes up and the latter goes down”
- “A [CSM certificate|college degree|MBA|PMP] is proof that I am qualified to do this job”
- “There is no place for a project manager in an agile environment”
- “Is my tie straight?”
- “Do you think I should have used a different font for my ‘SCRUM’ tattoo?”
