June 22, 2018 — Posted by Al Shalloway
  1. Provide a laser focus on what the development team needs to accomplish.
  2. Provide a workshop that includes the team doing some of their own work.
  3. Provide an online, support system that includes both courses and reference materials so the Scrum team can continue learning over time as needed.
  4. Provide a way to clearly specify the why of the requirements.
  5. Provide Scrum teams a way to create small, well-defined stories.
  6. Provide a way to validate the stories.
  7. Provide an easy and efficient way to estimate.
  8. Ensure Scrum is applicable to the situation.
  9. Provide an explanation for why a focus on getting quick feedback, working on the appropriate amount of work and a focus on finishing is essential in order for any Agile method to work
  10. Engage Product Owners in the training by having them work with developers in the way they will work once Scrum is adopted. 
  11. Teams need to understand the bigger picture goal within which they fit.
  12. Teams that will work together should be taught together. 
  13. Management must be learn their role in the adoption of Scrum and Agile
