@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.

@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.

@johncutlefish Thus, the ‘problematic’ #sprintgoal is a great opportunity to #inspect & #adapt and find opportunities to #improve the effectiveness of teams.

Also a great reminder that many ‘scrum’ teams are actually still on the journey of learning scrum and getting effective at it.

Love how some typos take a life of their own.

In many orgs, stakeholders are actually more like staleholders. Because their ideas are in the queue so long, they are no longer fresh and the opportunities that make em good have often evaporated or corroded.

A case for shortening time to market, time to learn and your queue.

So keep the backlog short and full of fresh ideas that are ready for tasting soon and can be served ‘hot’ for maximum impact.
