Steps for moving from waterfall to agile
Looks like you have made the two most important decisions for transforming your software development process:
- Moving from waterfall to agile.
- Following the Scrum (or a modified Scrum) process.
Congratulations! You are on the right track. It is possible to work out the other steps from here.
I would say, in order of priority, you should consider the following steps, if you are not doing so already:
- Send some of your key people for Scrum training.
- Team size: Looks like you have 18 people. This is too large a team for good communication and collaboration. Try to split this into two teams. While splitting the teams, make them into feature teams, not component teams.
- Ideally, designate a Scrum Master and a Product Owner for each team. However, you may be able to work with a common Scrum Master for both teams as well as a common Product Owner.
- Avoid having sub-teams. Individual Development Team members may have specialized skills and areas of focus, but accountability belongs to the Development Team as a
whole. This may be a slow process. But work towards this.
Now to answer your specific question:
Should I include Graphic Team and Business Analyst to Scrumban? what's
the best way?
Yes, you should include Graphic specialists and Business Analysts to the Scrum team. Development Teams are cross-functional, with all of the skills as a team necessary to create a product Increment. And split into two Scrum teams, as described above.
Good luck with your transition! Feel free to come back and ask additional questions here on PMSE.
