Process Tailoring Workshops Help Increase Agile Team Productivity


I recently wrote a detailed article about process tailoring workshops.  In a process tailoring workshop a coach or team lead walks the team through important aspects of the delivery process and the team discusses how they’re going to work together. This typically includes choosing a lifecycle, walking through the process goals one at a time and addressing the decision points of each one, and discussing roles and responsibilities.

There are several reasons why you want to tailor your team’s process:

  1. Every team is unique and faces a unique situation.
  2. You want to have a common vision as to how you’re going to work together.
  3. You want to streamline how you work together.
  4. You may actually need to document your process.

The article covers the following topics in detail:

  1. Why process tailoring?
  2. When do you run process tailoring workshops?
  3. The risks associated with process tailoring workshops
  4. Planning a process tailoring workshop
  5. What should you tailor?
  6. Running a process tailoring workshop
  7. Documenting the results

I hope you find it useful.
