    I like your idea about Scrum for Infeastructure team and your plan to share stories and examples

    I think the submission could be improved by:

    If you could share slides/video or any document explaining about

    • Why would infrastructure teams hesitate to practice scrum emphasizing how those teams and their operations differ from software development teams
    • What are their current challenges
    • What positive changes that could happen by using scrum framework
    • What teams to keep in their mind when getting started with Scrum

      Hi Janani,

      Thank you so much for liking the idea.

       

      Below are the answers.

       

      Why would infrastructure teams hesitate to practice scrum emphasizing how those teams and their operations differ from software development teams.


      - Its a Business As usual, they work on same repetitive issue, The challenges are different technology and different tower like SQL, Backup, Messaging and
      some time difficult to take different team in the same umbrella, Different team has different SOW, KPI etc.
      What are their current challenges
      - Its a Business As usual, they work on same

      repetitive issue, The challenges are different technology and different tower like SQL, Backup, Messaging and
      some time difficult to take different team in the same umbrella, Different team has different SOW, KPI etc.

      Change should be welcome, they have some standard change meaning no impact and they are pre approved, like that there should be time frame, they should not drag for
      CAB/TAB meeting until this is critical change.

      Defined scope of project with a steady backlog.


      For instance projects such as Server upgrades, Disaster Recovery, Backups are difficult to opt the SCRUM.


      What positive changes that could happen by using scrum framework
      -Should be open/Transparent, Requirement should be clear, Change should be welcome.
      -We can use some of the Agile Discipline such as Daily Standup, Frequent Demos, Acceptance Criteria and Reports (Chart).


      What teams to keep in their mind when getting started with Scrum.
      - Automation and Performance team.

       

       

      I am working on Creating a PPT on same.

    Hi Vikas,

    Thanks for your submission. 

    Quick question... is this presentation based on an idea/concept or a real-life case study where you used Scrum for an infrastructure project?

    Please advise.

      Hi Sanjay,
      Sorry for the late response,.

      This is my Idea of incorporating SCRUM in to Infrastructre Project.
      As per my understanding indirectly we follow scrum in our day to day job in Infrastructure management.
      For Example- Daily Operation call for 15 mins- 30 mins where we discuss below.

      - What did we do yesterday.
      - what will you do today?
      - is there any change on the way
      - Any challenges

      Artifcats-
      Backlog
      -Identify risk early and resolve/mitigate them before they become issues.

      - Infrastructure team has Cross Functional team members,
      - They have Service management team who gathers the requirement from client and hand it over to Respective Leads who distributes the work among his team members.

      - We can discuss many more in the session.
