When to design: Journey from NOT for me to HOW for me.
Outline/Structure of the Experience Report
-Background context: We will share the setting, nature of work and tech practices we followed. What were the problems and what was the wish list.
-Hear our experience from implementing Agile practices in a team that works on long running projects.
-We will share How we spread it to other Scrum teams. What ideas/techniques and tools we used.
-Challenges we faced, both from people and tools. Like one of the challenge was that people were very used to old tools and needed the continuity of data. Other challenge was the wrong assumptions about Agile like delivery date cannot be derived.
-Improvisations team did to work around roadblocks like the concept of presprint.
-How does the picture look now. How the current setup works. How with this being success the bottlenecks have been removed and team is now self organized and empowered to drive the releases
-Summary : In the end we plan to give a step by step guide that worked for us to empower the team and foster the culture of self-organize.
