Agile Advent Calendar

It’s December again. Suddenly I remembered the advents calendar that I published last year. We had online countdown to Christmas. Every day, starting 1 December onwards I shared a tip. Practices that benefit you as Agile coach, Scrum master or Agile practitioner. One year later, these tips still hold value. So, I like to share them with you, one more time. Not one by one, but as a whole set.

For example:

  • Let the team decide what and how they want to improve,
  • Remember things are like they are for a reason,
  • Draw out the customer journey and value flow or,
  • Balance your distributed teams

Read the rest of the tips and their explanation on the Squerist website. The best 16 of them I included in an article that has been published by the Agile Alliance: 16 Tips to Keep Focused on an Agile Journey.
