According to industry surveys over the past decade, the top impediment to further agility in organizations is lack of leadership awareness, understanding, and behavioral alignment with Agile values. 

Scrum Alliance has been collecting research and organizational in identifying the leadership mindset, behaviors, and focus that drive the sustained value delivery and organizational agility required to succeed in complex and rapidly changing environments. 

This talk shares the discoveries from that research, highlights the learnings leaders should seek to understand and apply, and introduces a new program from Scrum Alliance to guide leaders through this journey.

Collaboration at Scale: Defining Done and Ready and NO for Distributed Teams
With Joel Bancroft-Connors, Agile Organizational Coach; David A. Koontz, Agile Transition Guide; and Luke Hohmann, CEO and Founder of Conteneo, Inc.

14 February 2018
11 a.m. ET (USA)

The Scrum Guide is pretty clear on the criticality of the definition of Done: "When a Product Backlog item or an Increment is described as "Done," everyone must understand what "Done" means. However, the Scrum Guide ALSO says that the definition of Done can "vary significantly per Scrum Team." This leads us to examine when and how the definition of Done should vary, how distributed teams should create their definition of Done, and what other agreements can help the team be productive, including a definition of Ready and a definition of NO.

About the Collaboration at Scale Webinar Series

A joint production of Scrum Alliance® and Conteneo Inc., the Collaboration at Scale webinar series is designed to provide focused, outcome-driven solutions to collaboration problems faced by CSPOs, ScrumMasters, and Scrum Team members in organizations of 10 or more Scrum Teams.
