Business Analysis or Business Analyst — What’s Needed in the Scrum Team

Brief about me before you read this post so you can understand my perspective better. I am a software developer and Scrum Teacher. I have been in software development for 23+ years and have worked on various technologies and have played the role of a developer, analyst, project manager, delivery manager, scrum master, product owner, and coach. I teach and coach teams and individuals on agile project management using agile methods, agile product development using Scrum and LeSS, and Agile Software Development using Scrum, XP, and DevOps. Hoping it made clear that I don’t teach a role-based curriculum and focus on processes, practices, and methods. For me, the role is fluid, and if I know better techniques, procedures, and methods, then I can play any role that my team expects me to play.

What Is Business Analysis?

It is a discipline and very popular in the software project management field. Traditionally, there is a role called a business analyst to perform all tasks related to business analysis. Requirement analysis is a phase to perform business analysis tasks within traditional project management techniques (waterfall is the most popular framework). In this phase, analysts determine problems, identify business needs, elicit requirements, and manage stakeholders to meet business and project objectives. During execution, they facilitate the implementation of the Product, service, or result of the project.

Analyze the losses (if any) and identify a different approach, and possibly a new company culture. Don’t be afraid to look at your business and customers from an unexpected angle.

Best Electric Bikes and Scooters for Rental Business or Campus Facility

The electric scooter revolution has caught on super-fast taking many cities across the globe by storm. eScooters, a renovated version of old-school scooters now turned into electric vehicles are an environmentally friendly solution to current on-demand commute problems. They work on engines, like cars, enabling short traveling distances without hassle. The result is that these groundbreaking electric machines can now provide faster transport for less — cheaper than Uber and faster than Metro.

Since they are durable, fast, easy to operate and maintain, and are more convenient to park compared to four-wheelers, the eScooters trend has and continues to spike interest as a promising growth area. Several companies and universities are increasingly setting up shop to provide eScooter services realizing a would-be profitable business model and a ready customer base that is university students or residents in need of faster and cheap travel going about their business in school, town, and other surrounding areas.

Electric Scooters Trends and Statistics

In many countries including the U.S., Canada, Mexico, U.K., Germany, France, China, Japan, India, Brazil and Mexico and more, a growing number of eScooter users both locals and tourists can now be seen effortlessly passing lines of drivers stuck in the endless and unmoving traffic.

A recent report by McKinsey revealed that the E-Scooter industry will be worth― $200 billion to $300 billion in the United States, $100 billion to $150 billion in Europe, and $30 billion to $50 billion in China in 2030. The e-Scooter revenue model will also spike and is projected to rise by more than 20% amounting to approximately $5 billion.

And, with a necessity to move people away from high carbon prints, traffic and congestion issues brought about by car-centric transport systems in cities, more and more city planners are developing more bike/scooter lanes and adopting zero-emission plans. This is the force behind the booming electric scooter market and the numbers will only go higher and higher.

Companies that have taken advantage of the growing eScooter trend develop an appthat allows them to provide efficient eScooter services. Such an app enables them to be able to locate bike pick-up and drop points through fully integrated google maps.

List of Best Electric Bikes for Rental Business or Campus Facility 2020:

It’s clear that e scooters will increasingly become more common and the e-scooter business model will continue to grab the attention of manufacturers, investors, entrepreneurs. All this should go ahead with a quest to know what are some of the best electric bikes in the market especially for anyone who would want to get started in the electric bikes/scooters rental business.

35 Scrum Master Interview Questions and Answers [2020]

From the desk of a brilliant weirdo #1:

Are your hand shivering and pouring yourself with sweat right before your scrum master interview?

Do you feel quite uncomfortable, maybe unprepared, or maybe even lost in the darkness to what you can expect from the interviewer?

I’ve gone through some of the most common scrum interview questions and provided answers as well.

Big credits to Stefan Wolper, an agile coach, and his ebook about Scrum Masters.

Without further ado:

Scrum Master Role & Responsibilities (Overview)
It’s the Scrum Master’s responsibility to bring the development team on the same page by teaching them all the values and principles that fundamentally shape Scrum and, respectively, Agile.

The Scrum Master’s role revolves around helping and guiding the scrum team rather than managing it. He is also responsible for keeping the project-related stakeholders in the loop as well.

One of the Scrum Master’s primary responsibilities is to ensure a distraction-free environment for his team. The Scrum Master also participates in creating the product backlog helping the PO (product owner) prioritize tasks by importance.

And he is the one ultimately responsible for imbuing the organization with the Scrum values & principles by communicating with other scrum masters, stakeholders, etc.

So, if you are determined to follow a Scrum Master career path, earn the respective salary of a certified scrum master, and qualify for tons of scrum master interviews with the help of your brilliant scrum master resume, then this article can get you prepared for your first or next interview.

Now, before we dive in, here are a couple of…

Things (+ Tips) To Know Before The Scrum Master Interview
The questions you will encounter during a scrum master interview can vary widely based on the interviewer’s company and its values.

You might get asked kinds of questions about indifferent team members, keeping stakeholders in the loop, agile metrics, the barebones of scrum, and more. We’ll pretty much cover everything from exam-like, SDLC, and behavioral to more advanced technical and testing-related interview questions.

Of course, your experience will impact the interview process, as well. Senior scrum masters will get asked questions that an entry-level scrum master wouldn’t stumble upon until later in their career.

Also, regardless of your experience as a scrum master, you should always display curiosity and excitement in front of your interviewer. Tell the interviewer about your background and experience as a scrum master. Share what excites you (and what you think makes you a good fit) about the job position you are applying for. It will, without a doubt, boost your chances of getting hired.

Alrighty, let’s get you prepared for your scrum master interview…

Scrum Master Interview Questions and Answers
[Agile & Scrum-Related]
Explain to me the Agile mindset in your own terms?
If you can’t answer this question on your own then it’s best to go over the Agile Manifesto a couple of times.

How can you say that Agile is working in your organization?
When the products you deliver to the end-user result in higher customer retention rates, upsells, and more customer acquisition.
When the team genuinely feels happy, it can be considered that you are doing alright. There are no team members complaining about work environments. Nobody is leaving (or getting fired) the team.

Lots of submitted job applications can also be considered as a metric for a well-performing Agile organization.

If there aren’t piles of technical debt, bugs aren’t present, and there’s less time spent on maintenance, you can say that Agile is going well in your company.

What is the difference between Agile and Scrum (another newbie question)?
If you still struggle with explaining in simple terms, here’s a more straightforward definition that can make things easier for you: Agile is a philosophy. Scrum is a framework and subset of Agile.

Agile describes a set of ideals and values. In contrast, Scrum gives you principles through which you can make your project management easier.

What’s your criticism of Scrum?
This can be quite an interesting question as it’s quite unusual. It shows your point of view and rationalization process to a degree. That’s something you should personally answer without having someone else tell you the “correct” answer. Some developers consider the daily scrums to be a waste of time to a certain degree. Others believe that sprints can be managed better allocating more time to fixing the technical debt.
