My team consists of 4 people
- Myself (Division Director, Senior Developer and Project Manager (adhoc PM))
- Emp1 (Data Administrator/Data Entry for entire agency)
- Emp2 (Junior Developer - Have not hired yet)
- Emp3 (Assistant Salesforce Administrator / Assistant Developer - Have not hired yet)
The agency I work for consists of 7 divisions. My division (Data Services) is responsible for Data Collection, Data Entry, new Development, and maintaining existing web applications (total of 5 sites including Salesforce for 70 users). I'm currently the only one developing, maintaining, and administrating all sites including Salesforce. I'm also the one responsible for all of my staff and can put together any kind of team that I need, but with only the resources for hiring 3 employees.
Why I want to use Scrum:
I want to put together a Scrum team because our projects change often, and randomly due to politics. So, with traditional management I found that I was starting over and wasting a lot of time re-writing requirements only to have them change in the middle of development.
With the resources listed above, can I successfully pull off a Scrum team? The reason I'm concerned is because I'm the one juggling the Scrum Master role, as well as Salesforce development, .NET development, and managing my staff. Granted I will have a Junior Developer and Assistant Salesforce Admin, that will take some time to get them up to speed.
So to sum it up, is this possible without jeopardizing conceptual control? What I mean by this is; with the types of resources and non-dedicated Scrum Master (since I also have a few others roles) am I high risk for failure approaching using Scrum?
