Recently I facilitated a workshop between multiple Scrum teams in which we discussed the area of backlog management. The main purpose was to gather some best practices for managing the product backlog. With this blog post I will share the outcome of the session, hopefully they are useful to you, otherwise I gladly receive other best practices you might know.

Implementing Scrum does not stop with implementing practices. Sometimes we underestimate that an Agile transition is a real organizational and cultural change which has a big impact on the employees of the company. What you see is that we expect from the people within the organization that they will also change alongside the organizational change. But it will not happen overnight.
A while back I was confronted with a movie from a speech from professor Sumantra Ghoshal called ‘The Smell of the Place’. In this speech he explains that the context in which he is in has a huge impact on his behavior. He uses the example that when he is in downtown Calcutta in summer he is always tired and lazy but when he walks in Fontainebleau forest in springtime he is energized and feels like running.

"Gefeliciteerd met het behalen van het Professional Scrum Master Assessment! U heeft gedemonstreerd te beschikken over de fundamentele kennis van de rol van Professional Scrum Master en de principes van het Scrum Framework te beheersen zoals deze beschreven worden in de Scrum Guide."
Elke dag verschijnt dit bericht in meerdere mailboxen om nieuwe Scrum Masters te feliciteren met hun behaalde certificaat. Zij hebben bewezen fundamentele kennis van het Scrum Framework te hebben. Het moeilijkste gedeelte moet echter nog komen; het toepassen van de verkregen kennis in echte projecten, gecombineerd met hun eigen dagelijkse problemen, hoge verwachtingen en ogenschijnlijk harde deadlines.

You want to have structured meetings. You also want meetings to be effective and to fulfill the needs of the attendants. And last, but not least, you do not want them to drag on. But how do you do this? Simple: use the Lean Coffee format.
Holding a good meeting is not easy. As the organizer of a meeting, we are often only focused on getting our own goals met. We start the meeting, but then one of the attendees raises a point and before you know it, the whole meeting is taken into another direction. Half of the attendants mentally wander off, while one colleague keeps talking about some unimportant topic. Sounds familiar?
