Andrew Colin Celi /Italy/

Andrew Celi is a Senior level IT Professional and Contractor with almost 20 years of experience in software and infrastructure engineering, consultancy, business operations and project management on an international basis (e.g. Europe, India, USA) often working with multinational teams and stakeholders.
12 years in IT Project Management - in the last 5 years Andrew has thoroughly explored "pros and cons" of the Outsourcing working model by assiduously collaborating with Offshore Development Centres based in India in relation to web development projects and governance of remote/virtual teams.

In the last 4 years, Andrew has pursued the adoption of the Scrum framework in order to exploit the strengths of Agile Development together with a sort of "Agile Project Management" approach, especially when he is given the challenge to coordinate the work done by in-house teams with that of remote teams within a Co-Sourcing working environment.

Just recently Andrew has also become Certified ScrumMaster in order to consolidate a role for which, by operating first as a consultant then as an "on-the-field" contractor, he wants to spread the "Agile verb" every time he's consulted by clients for development projects especially where Co-Sourcing (in-house + remote dev teams) is adopted as it happens to be a growing trend in these last 2 years.

Lightning Talk

Communications along with interactions and a non-committed Product Owner – the “on-the-field” challenges in a Scrum project.

The Agile Manifesto, among other focal points, says: "Individuals and interactions over processes and tools".

Field experiences have shown that both individuals and interactions are the key points, and it is exactly where hidden challenges often can be found.

Even if you pursue interactions and you've managed to appropriately build on Team spirit, which is another focal point of Scrum, the quality of communications generated, and therefore the information shared among members of the Scrum Team is not something that can always be taken for granted, an issue that can lead to minor impediments or worse to a constraint on the dev team's velocity, productivity and consequently value delivery.

On the individuals' side, by far the most challenging situation is when you don't have a focused and committed Product Owner - this situation often arises from a wrong management approach that tends to overload a single person of too many roles while  mixing up the role of a traditional Project Manager with that one of the Product Owner.

This session's objective is to share these impediments and possible lines of actions that identified and pursued in order to improve both internal communications and also to counteract the scarce contribution inevitably given by a non-committed PO.
