Empirical Process based on Transparency, Inspection, and Adaptation. Therefore Rhythm of Inspection, and Adaptation is very important. It will help your Scrum team have Time-Box and circle of Focus, Learn and Mature.
"Rhythm helps team to focus and reduces the complexity"
Build it at the beginning.
One of the very important things I used to build when start new Scrum team is having Scrum team to define Rhythm of events.
Let's start this with 5 events of Scrum, and facilitate the team to build their Schedule:
Sprint: define the duration of Sprint. (Read more about Sprint length here)
Sprint Planning: Time-box, when and where will it be held?
Daily Scrum: Time-box, when and where will it be held?
Sprint Review: Time-box, when and where will it be held?
Sprint Retrospective: Time-box, when and where will it be held?
Below is an example of Schedule:
Make it transparent
There are 2 things you should do to maximize this Schedule is Transparent:
- Remember to maintains & update it following reality of need.
- Make it visible to all stakeholders.
