Define and Train Agile Role Owners
For the discovery journey to be successful, an effective division of roles and assignment of responsibilities is necessary. Therefore, the fourth step is to define the role holders according to the chosen agile framework. At this point, individual personal skills and characteristics are essential. Because these enable the future role holders to perform their function in the best possible way, we support the organizations through our Agile coaches to identify the role holders.
Once the role holders are identified, they are trained to execute the role through interactive training to provide them with the crucial methodological knowledge in a targeted manner.
Determine Pilot Project Content – Create Backlog
Once the goal of the journey is set, responsibilities are divided, and the pioneers are mentally and practically prepared for the journey, we move into the detailed planning of the discovery journey. The project team defines the next steps, prioritizes the activities and fills the backlog of the pilot project with epics and first user stories.
Starting the Sprint 0
Now we are almost ready to launch and get our agile project flying. The last tasks before starting in Sprint 0 are mainly organizational – create meeting schedule, organize kick-off and clarify last ambiguities with project team and stakeholders. When everything is settled, your agile travel bag is packed, and from now on, it’s “just do it”!
3…, 2…, 1… GO!
