Amruta Beri: Code Optimization and Scope Creep, Common Anti-Patterns Scrum Masters Must be Aware of

In this episode, Amruta shares her experience working with a team on a website migration project that involved adding client-specific features. Initially, the project started off well, but they soon realized that all the stories were heavily focused on technical aspects. After about four months, as the codebase grew, they faced challenges with introducing stories about code optimization without defined scope. The stories became too big, making it difficult to convince the engineers to prioritize and focus on one optimization at a time. The team started carrying stories from sprint to sprint, resulting in deviations from their original plan. Amruta provides tips such as presenting data to highlight time allocation, involving senior members to facilitate communication, and focusing on specific features instead of the entire scope.

Featured Book of the Week: The Five Dysfunctions of a Team: A Leadership Fable by Patrick Lencioni

In this segment, Amruta shares her favorite book, “Five Dysfunctions of a Team” by Lencioni. She highlights how relatable the story is for Scrum Masters, as many have experienced similar situations. The book emphasizes the significance of trust within a team, aligning closely with Agile principles. It explores the journey of a team’s transformation, shedding light on the challenges and dynamics that teams commonly face. Amruta’s summary showcases the book’s relevance to Scrum Masters and its valuable insights into building successful teams through trust and collaboration.
