Then find your goals…
STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track
Featuring new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Scrum improvements can be made.
Examples; 10 of the standard requirements:
- Agile project management with Scrum derives from best business practices in companies like Fuji-Xerox, Honda, Canon, and Toyota. Toyota routinely achieves four times the productivity and 12 times the quality of competitors. Can Scrum do the same for globally distributed teams?
- Scrums productivity stems from doing the right things first and doing those things very effectively. The product owner queues up the right work by prioritizing the product backlog. How does the team maximize its productivity, though?
- Every day, does the team get together for a 15-minute meeting called a Daily Scrum and answers three questions: What have you done on this project since the last Daily Scrum meeting?
- Could any requirements (especilly those near the top of the Product Backlog) be better expressed as independent, negotiable, valuable, estimable, small, and testable user stories1?
- What management system can we use to leverage the Scrum experience, ideas, and concerns of the people closest to the work to be done?
- If the project is using Agile Development or Agile Acquisition, how many staff on the Scrum Team are identified as testers?
- A sprint is time-boxed. Acceptance testing is very difficult to time-box. What if time runs out and you still have a critical bug?
- Do we direct the meetings crisply and professionally, ensuring that everyone answers the three questions?
- What are the pros and cons of the waterfall and agile scrum project management approach for your organization?
- Is the purpose of the Daily Scrum to make sure that problems and obstacles are visible to the team?

Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organization and department.
Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, ‘What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?’
This Toolkit empowers people to do just that – whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc… – they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make Scrum investments work better.
This Scrum All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person:
