Agile Talks #38 - SCRUM Anti-patterns -The obsession over team velocity

Hi,

If you’ve been on an agile team that uses velocity as a key metric, you’ve probably experienced or at least witnessed some pretty strange behavior.

Let’s meet at Timisoara Agile Talks meet-up and I’ll help you understand the biggest Scrum anti pattern the obsession over team velocity, why companies should stop their obsession over velocity and stop using them as a measure of team performance. Velocity is one of the most misused Agile metrics, let’s find out how to use velocity in your scrum team and what is its purpose?

To understand velocity/story points, it’s necessary to know the purpose of why we estimate? And how? I'll take you through a deep dive on estimation and grooming. If you wonder ! Santosh! so how do we measure performance of a scrum team? Do not worry I got you covered. I’ll provide you some tips and best practices.

If you have any other questions about the Agile/scrum or if you are an agile practitioner and learner? A Problem-Solver, Scrum Master, Product Owner, Developer, Agile Coach, or an awesome Manager? I invite you to Agile talks Timisoara to learn together. Bring your challenge, opportunity, or problem! Anything you want to share, practice, or learn about!
