How to graduate school of Agile?

Agile Graduated

 

As a scrum master and/or a coach to your Agile team, do you ever question yourself – how is your team performing on the Agile scale? Is there some room for improvement? How mature is your team in its Agile thinking?

I recently came across these 22 good agile practices that focus more on Lean, and serve as a good scale to measure how mature your team is in Agile best practices. Each practice mentioned below can be rated on a scale of 0 – 2.

  • o – if you never do it.
  • 1 – if you sometimes do it.
  • 2 – if you consistently do it.

Even though this scale measures between 0-2, remember the spirit of Kaizen that refers to constant improvement. So if you have mastered all these practices and have attained a 2, still keep going to 3,4,5…..
