sdPP Element Risks

Implementing Scrum comes with changes. These changes are not only related to the software development department, but will affect everyone in the company, including management. Job descriptions will change, and the corporate structure and culture. Changes and challenges in adopting Scrum are:

  • There will be turnover.
  • There will be conflicts.
  • The product management work will change and be more difficult.
  • Engineering is responsible for the quality.
  • Compensation policies have to change.
  • Work will change.
  • The primary responsibility of government will command a servant leadership.
  • Management rotation will occur.

Scrum makes employees leave the company: At first glance this sounds very dramatic, but it really is not. Scrum is created through transparency and nobody can hide behind the supposed mistakes of others. Through the observation of the "time box" tasks within the team and transparency with respect to when something needs to be delivered, statements like: "... I've been waiting for this or that ..., or ... I had to do so many things for the customer who simply did not get ... "lose its foundation. Yes, the introduction and implementation of Scrum can lead to the fact that some employees and the manager did not feel comfortable in his company and leave because not everyone likes the changes Scrum.

Scrum creates conflicts: Yes, because Scrum brings out problems of the company, and management teams. In some companies unfortunately not try to expose problems and therefore do not remove them. Scrum that can not function in this way must be very clear. This misuse is why statements like "Scrum is chaotic", or "Scrum does not work for us." The spectrum of potential conflicts that can occur through the introduction of Scrum is versatile. It starts with directors who like transparency in development, but do not want to share their views or who think that the rules are only for others. Project leaders must first classic take on the role they have to take in the scrum. In addition, a company needs demand customer collaboration.

The sdPP model defines a set of risks the project manager would assume if the solution were applied. These risks warn the project manager about possible problems in the project execution. The project manager must understand these risks to try and avoid them.
