This week I joined a team in the Scrum facilitation role. There is so much to share about my intentions but I decided to share these key expectations.
I look forward to supporting you in the Scrum facilitation role, as I transition to help you I want to share how I approach the Scrum facilitation these days.
For the Scrum role, I’m tasked with facilitating the Scrum, that means that you, the team understand why we have the Scrum meetings we have, e.g. Story Writing & Estimation, Daily Team Meeting, Retrospective, and Planning.
In addition, I’m tasked with helping with delivery, that means striving to deliver working software at a regular cadence and helping you plan ahead.
Lastly I’m tasked with helping you work together. That means that you have what you need to deliver working software, e.g. Priority of work, ability to deliver from idea to production, removing blockers when I can, and asking (hopefully) insightful questions.
As I join the team I will try to follow these guiding principles:
In the next few days you will see new Scrum meetings coming from me and short one-on-one sessions for us to chat individually. I look forward to supporting you in the Scrum facilitator role and learning from you.

Today I feel I missed an opportunity in not spending time with Bill. I have regret. I also have a smile when I remember Bill.
I remember Bill, as positive, easy to talk to, easy to work with, reasonable. Bill liked to share ideas and would listen to your ideas too. He really, really, loved the food court at the rotary, his go-to place for lunch.
We use to talk about his connection with Evanston and Rogers Park, places I had lived. We spoke about application design and design in general.
It’s a bummer that Bill is no longer around.
