We can talk Scrum theory until we’re blue in the face, but finding ways to make Scrum work in your reality, especially if that reality is a distributed workforce, requiring two Product Owners in two locations – one PO with the Stakeholders and one PO with the Scrum Team – that’s where the real learning is.

It is simply not enough to send your teams to Scrum Handbook Whitepaper training or bring in a coach.

Indeed, stating you are going to improve is setting yourself up for failure. The statements are too bold and big to be done all at once and often blind us to simple small steps we are agree to make – right now. Leadership must work at facilitating a change mindset and the teams must work at simple working-agreements that they can make and hold each other accountable to – The Scrum Handbook description .
