Join Kelley OConnell for an in-depth discussion in this video Sprint execution and measurement, part of Transitioning from Waterfall to Agile Project Management.
- There are several key elements…to successfully executing an Agile sprint.…My top four items for a successful sprint are…Daily Planning, Daily Collaboration,…Focus on Done, and Measurement.…The smallest element of sprint execution is the day,…so the team meets every morning to plan their day together.…This daily planning meeting…is most often referred to as a stand up.…Stand up is timeboxed to 15 minutes…and is held in front of the task board for the sprint.…
The stand up takes place at the same time every day,…and everyone says what they did yesterday,…what they plan to do today,…and then call out anything that's getting in their way…so the team can help resolve it after the stand up.…It's not a status update; no one should be saying…how they did what they did,…no one should be asking questions.…In fact, there should be no dialog in this meeting at all.…After the stand up is when the conversations happen.…The next key to successful sprint execution…is Daily Collaboration.…
That collaboration begins as conversation…
