Making Scrum Easier to Master With Disciplined Agile

This will be expanded, but here’s a start

  1. Understand the value stream is the workflow, not the people in the workflow, from concept to consumption of value.
  2. Attend to the entire value stream. If you don’t get cooperation of portfolio or product management, make the cost of this visible.
  3. Use Minimum Business Increments (MBIs) when enhancing existing products. Use MVPs for what they were intended for – discovering if you have new products. Don’t confuse the two.
  4. Create semi-autonomous teams that have all the skills required to create the MBIs.
  5. Do your PI planning by focusing on removing delays in workflow in the completion of MBIs. This lowers waste while lowering cost of delay.
  6. Use dependencies identified in PI planning to Improve your organization’s value creation structure
