I spent the day doing Scrum training with some of the teams who work on the BHF website. Everyone had different levels of experience of using Scrum and those who are currently working in Scrum approached the training in a very different way to those who aren’t. It was clear they were seeking answers to specific challenges they are facing.
For me, the interesting thing was talking about ‘Definition of Ready’, which is something I’ve not previously given much thought to. It’s obvious that a piece of work has to be ready to be worked on; clear requirements, stakeholder agreement, etc., but the idea that the more certain a thing becomes the closer it is to being ready connected with my thoughts about uncertainty and risk.
