Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the Agile Zone (November 14 - November 21). Here they are, in order of popularity:

1. Some Thoughts on Agile Transformation in Big Companies

  • I am under no illusions that this post will be the definitive explanation, but I spend a TON of time talking to people and level setting before I can have any kind of intelligent conversation on agile, so I want to explore some of the points that I think resonate.

2. The Single Point Of Failure

  • As a SOHO (Solo Home Office) Developer one of the many challenges is the fact that there is no one else to discuss code changes with. Without someone to discuss changes with your blind spots will not be covered by a colleague looking at your code, potentially more bugs could creep into your code base and there are less opportunities to learn from other peoples experiences. So what can you do? Well here are some suggestions.

3. Scrum and Kanban: Getting the Most from Each

  • Scrum is the most popular Agile methodology with Kanban a growing second choice. Learn about the core parts of each one as well as how they differ so that you can find the best fit for your team or organizational context.

4. Southern Fried Agile: A Shift in Perspective

  • Besides my personal perspective shifts, Southern Fried Agile was representative of a number of other perspective shifts ongoing in the agile community.

5. Replacing Backlog Grooming

  • Over the last few years, I’ve worked with numerous teams. One thing they all struggle with is backlog grooming. Over the last few years I have evolved my practice of backlog grooming.
