Limiting Beliefs...

2) we’ll fail at X because we failed at X once before
3) we can’t innovate internally
4) [some group] can’t handle transparency

Next up: Katie Malone @multiarmbandit From Presidential campaign trail to Enterprise - Building a #DataScience team @CivisAnalytics
Effective #data-driven teams: different in existing organizations than start-ups. Need to find the best places to build in data value without overturning everything else. Challenges: personal-level analytics, resource allocation, security, privacy. #ODSCWest
Business & data teams will see problems differently. Data teams need to be comfortable with trade-offs in business. Metrics can be ill-defined. Speed can be better than perfection. Important to understand adequate accuracy of models. #ODSCWest Oh yeah, and security.

I’ve worked with lots of agile #teams, and some of the symptoms of a well functioning high-perfoming teams that I see are:

👇
They start their daily standups on time.
They tend to laugh a lot and have fun.

Like most IT people I love tools. And tools are absolutely vital to #Agile, esp. #automation of #development & #delivery. But when it comes to managing teams & processes, do #tools and #Agile always mix? Maybe not…
1. Software developers like #tools. No, they adore tools. They seem the most natural way to solve a problem, and they are familiar territory that any #delivery team is more than happy to enter. #Agile
2. But #tools provide little support for the *content* of most #Agile delivery tasks, from defining Product Vision to conducting Daily Stand-Up Meetings. They do support day-to-day workflow, reporting and recording, but at that level are often easily replaced by manual #methods.

@johncutlefish Because many teams, especially in larger orgs, struggle with #focus

And many #productowners struggle with mandate. So they struggle to create focus in the #backlog by driving on business goals (outcomes).

@johncutlefish And #teams are more like #stakeholder wishlist deliverers than of actual business value

So the top if the backlog is a jumble of non related jobs that staleholders ‘need’. And as a result, the Sprint backlog as well. Making it very hard to set a sprint goal.

2/x
@johncutlefish This often stems from defining #scrumteams too narrow in the org (only within IT or even just ops) AND not having clear outcome based goals as an organization.
