comment How do I create a potential shippable product (PSP) at the end of a sprint?
Shit happens and we need to live with it, isn't that the whole point of Agile? Wow, is this what people think nowadays?

We used to leave them outside of the Sprint but then the team won't focus on it.

comment How to properly shield a Product Owner from outside?
that's an interesting suggestion. Actually we try to preserve some of his developement allocated time by doing pair programming. People tend to refrain from disturbing 2 people working for some reason.

comment How to properly shield a Product Owner from outside?
@PéterTörök basic teaching, as why we can't delivered a new feature request mid sprint. Without going through the whole Scrum explanations. For now I just set them as hard rules they need to comply with, as they didn't want to listen more yet.

comment How to properly shield a Product Owner from outside?
@ThomasOwens I see your point. So to recap I educate myself on his role and why it's not noise but part of the process. Than I'll need to have a talk with him

So it's more about me educating him to accept this noise than educating outside people about our process?

comment How to properly shield a Product Owner from outside?
This is exactly what we've been doing and we've always prioritized PO job over development. But he likes to code and want to do more, and still he is doing a wonderful job as a PO and is the best person in the company to go on with this position

what if he is also part of the development team? It's our configuration as a small team

comment What metrics do you use on your Scrum project?
thanks, lot of good insights. About the Risk board, can you describe a bit how you estimate the severity or the impact on a project? For example, if say we are only 3 people in the team and I want to display our small size as a risk

comment In Scrum, what to do when story points and task hours don't roughly correlate?
As you said, recording everything will get you resistance. Just ask everyone what tasks took longer than they initially though. can the team identify a pattern between the stories that take longer, like learning a new technology, or solving integration issues? And then discuss about possible actions on those kind of tasks, like for example pair programming

comment Does a time estimate equal a promise in Scrum?
did you ask your ScrumMaster before asking here? Cause it sounds like you haven't. Trusting your SM may have a better impact on your project than getting those questions answered.

comment How to account for a bug fixing iteration?
"We have implementing Scrum quite successfully ... without ever doing any end-to-end integration test." Sorry you've done it wrong. You were supposed to be able to ship at the end of each iteration.

comment How do you avoid disrupting the flow of work when the Product Owner asks for a release?
"The teams work flow, or cadence changes each time the stop trigger is set" Why? what kind of change exactly?

comment How should we implement Scrum with two projects for one team?
I know this is not Scrum by the book . But they have business obligations with the old product, so yeah it is mainly about product support, but if the ROI justify it, that can imply new features as well

comment Should I learn design patterns or algorithms to improve my logical thinking skills?
He was talking about datastructure and algorithm. what I meant to say was, most of the time, chances are there is an API already covering your needs. I've seen so many time ppl writing hundreds of LOC to build an algorithm that the API already does better. In other words, before looking for an algorithm to solve an issue, look at the API.
