It also seems that you are using user stories burn down charts and such. This will definitely help you to keep on track,. But now the other side. There are some "red flags" as you said, but I am sure there will be no surprise for you. Are you or are you not a scrum master? This is very important to know.
If not you? Does Development team has their SM? It seems that your organization would like to have the benefits of scrum but does not want to acknowledge the scrum roles, artifacts or events. That will not do. The team must know who is the scrum master. And it has to be official, for them and for the management.
If roles will be not clear, problems will be bigger. Try to convince the management to make this clear or you cannot do the job they want you to do. On the other hand, if the project does not want scrum. SM and the team should be together, how can you effectively protect them and improve their collaboration if you are not there? I know that you do not make this decision, but all people involved should be aware of the consequences. If you will be remote SM, you work will be very hard. I would understand for the first sprint where team has no idea about velocity and simply underestimate the work.
But the next sprint they should plan more or less the same amount of work they were able to finish last sprint. This is not bad only for the team's morale but how do you plane release? You should promote the daily stand up. It is necessary for the team to keep track on their progress during the sprint. So they they can adapt they way of work or inform others they will not finish what it is planned.
You should be there so hear what prevents them to achieve what was planned. I also hope you do retrospection, but you should. Team needs the opportunity to look back and discuss to improve. How the development team knows what to develop? Can you influence this?
Delivering User Stories for Implementing Logical Software Architectures by Multiple Scrum Teams
How the estimates are done if the user stories are not described? Maybe I misunderstood you here.
In general the fork-flow is very similar what we had in the beginning. It is not ideal and it has to change. Since the Scrum is new for everyone I always try to find the biggest pain point and change it and see. It is important is to get testers on planning, even if they would only listen, they need to know the user stories and their interpretation from PO to start working on test cases as soon as possible. Secondly, to get installers 3rd week is just too late. I do not know how much time you spend on the build deployment but you should start testing as soon as the first user story is ready to be tested so that mistakes can be corrected until the end of the sprint.
We also have problem with it, now we are trying to improve automatic build deployment so that we do not lose that much time on it. If you are indeed the SM of the project and it is up to you to explain Scrum to others, you should conduct some training, for you AND others. However, even more important is to read, read and read. There are many books out there and as soon as you will understand not WHAT is the scum roles, artifacts, events, rules but WHY scrum, it will be easier to explain to others.
I also recommend to check Scrum Master checklists or Scrum Metrics so that you know more what is wrong, it will help you to identify the root cause. Most likely there are other things the project should do but does not to follow the Scrum, but it is important to start the change somewhere, at the point which is the biggest bottleneck now. Have you read the official scrum guide?
Any possibility to get an agile coach or a senior scrum master to get you and the team trained and coached? Wow, there's a lot going on here :. Rather than type out a detailed response, I'll ask, would you like to connect on a video chat? Email me at jason. Let's set up a face to face conversation. To be productive, the team and ScrumMaster will need to remove side conversations, effectively facilitate the Daily Scrum, use notes where necessary, overcome language barriers, and recognize local schedules and holidays. Tools are less of an issue with the Daily Scrum.
A chat tool can help to overcome language barriers, the team can use a wiki or another repository to store notes, and a full-duplex phone can help when some of the team members meet in the same conference room. Scaled teams will engage in Scrum of Scrums meetings as well as Daily Scrums to help with coordination and integration between teams. See All Related Store Items.
