Two short checklists for Scrum

checklist no.1

  • Do you add acceptance criteria and story points to each ticket before planning?
  • Do you have daily team meetings where people provide updates on their progress?
  • After each iteration, do you report to stakeholders what work was done and what will be planned next?

checklist no.2

  • Is the team protected during the sprint from stakeholders trying to interfere?
  • Is a sprint focused on achieving a goal and is how that goal is achieved, left sufficiently open?
  • Does the team address impediments as soon as they are discovered?
