Congratulations! You’re an Agile Coach.
In the next lesson, you will learn about how to start this process. But first, time for a quiz. Which of these should the Agile Coach do?
Your team is excited about their topic. Everyone is brainstorming ideas and the Product Owner is taking notes. So where do you come in?
Knowledge Check Who assigns work on Scrum Teams?
** The key to being transparent about work is the Sprint Backlog**.
📆 The Sprint Backlog is a representation of all the work the team will complete within the next two weeks.
We recommend using a project management product like Trello or Miro to keep track of your backlog tasks.
🗓 As work is completed, make sure to update the Sprint Backlog. This will help you measure your team’s progress.
In the next lesson you will learn more about measuring progress. But first, time for a knowledge check. True or False: The Sprint Backlog represents all the work the team needs to do to complete their project.
Your team is hard at work. 👩🏾💻👨🏽💻 You made your Sprint Backlog and everyone has a task to complete. So how are they doing? Does anyone need help?
Knowledge Check: Which of these things is NOT part of the Agile Coach's role?
Since your team is spread out geographically, the best way to hold a Standup is over Slack.
You can use a program like the Standuply bot or create an Excel sheet, to help you.
The important thing is to make sure everyone checks in every day.
True/False: Everyone needs to have their standup together at the same time.
True/False: DxH teams do not have a Sprint Review.
DxH holds informal Sprint Retrospectives at the beginning of each planning meeting.
This is your time to reflect on what went well and areas where you can improve.
As Agile Coach, you should take notes during this part of the meeting so that you can suggest ways to improve the process during the next Sprint.
The Scrum Process is cyclical, so there is always room to improve. It is ok if things don’t go perfectly. The important thing is that you help the team look at their process so they can make it better.
True/False: At DxH you have an informal Sprint Retrospective as part of your next Sprint Planning meeting.
