Sprint Planning w/ JJ Sutherland
Recently, I was contacted by a friend/former co-worker who I met when we were both starting out during the .com boom. A few months ago he brought his team to take my CSM class. After he and his team took my class they went back to their organization and began practicing Scrum. At some point shortly after that, a different section of the organization attended a CSM class taught by JJ Sutherland. What my friend reached out about was the fact that there was an area where what I taught and what JJ taught seemed to be at odds and this was causing them some extra stress in trying to get Agile to take root in the organization. The issue revolved around how much work a team should plan to do, and accomplish in a Sprint. While I had a feeling JJ and I were probably closer than not on the topic, I thought it would be a great thing to discuss/debate in a podcast. So in this episode of SoundNotes JJ and I break down the topic to see where we agree, where we don't and why. If you are not familiar with JJ Sutherland, he's the Chief Product Owner at Scrum, Inc. If his last name sounds familiar, it's because Jeff Sutherland is his Dad. But, given some of the work experiences JJ has had, that fact is far from the most interesting thing about him. During the interview we also discuss JJ's experience working for NPR in war zones, the many places he has successfully used Scrum that have nothing at all to do with IT, and the podcast he produces on video games.
