Design Sprint Meet Scrum – Scrum Jakarta (CiKemPon) 3rd Meetup

Group photo after the meetup

Hello Scrum enthusiast in Cilandak – Kemang – Pondok Indah – (and around) area!
Thank you for those who came to our last meetup. (Thursday, November 23rd 2017)
Thank you also to PT Asuransi Astra Buana (Pak Iwan) for a great venue.

There wasn’t a usual meetup that we had some speakers to shared a talk, we only did an open space. Open space is a session when we discussed everything based on what we want to discussed within the timebox. So, this is how we hold the session:
1. We are divided into 3 different group (each group will be facilitated by someone: Mas Aditya Suryomurtjito from Sepulsa, Mas Tommy Fadillah from Aleph Labs, and me)
2. Every member of the group got opportunity to share the topic that they wanna discussed, used a post it
3. Then we prioritized the topic to being discussed based on vote from member of the group, means the topic that we pick is the topic that still confusing by most of the people
4. Let’s discussed! (don’t forget to keep the timebox!)

Goal of the session: no more confusing on the most topic, and can you guest what is that? it’s basic Scrum. :”)

Yeah, we discussed everything related basic Scrum, it’s okay, there’s always a session to build the mindset first.

Then we discussed about Design Sprint – Scrum.

Myth that usually came up:

1. Design Sprint is sprint that held by product people (designer and PO) and should be held exactly before (Scrum) development sprint

Design Sprint involve everyone whose in charge or interact with the solution, it can be people outside tech and product team, it can be inside (developer). So it’s not only for designer and PO even though PO and designer might take a major role in the session.

Exactly before Scrum sprint? of course no, it’s not a mini waterfall for designer and PO. So, what is the goal of having a Design Sprint? please check next answer..

2. Design sprint is REQUIRED before we start a Scrum sprint, means no Design Sprint == no Scrum sprint

Goal of Design Sprint is to produce high quality backlog. High quality means validated and tested considered human desirability, business viability, and technical feasibility. So, it can help PO in terms of produce the backlog, but is it always required? the answer is: it can help but not always needed. For pretty straight forward solution and more technical feature, having a Design Sprint might overkill.

Then what is required to start a Scrum sprint? of course not always having a Design Sprint before it.
It is Product Backlog and Sprint Goal.

3. Design sprint is held in sprint planning

Remember, how many hours maximum for sprint planning? 4 hours. Then 4 hours for having a design sprint? of course not enough.

4. Additional time needed in design sprint means less time for all member of the team to developed and delivered the feature

Not all member of the team required in Design Sprint. It can be adjusted based on possibility scope of the solution. If it’s probably impacting front end then we can only invite one of front end guy (not all fronties from that team). It’s also applied to stakeholder, if it’s only touch operation issue, no need to involved marketing guy isn’t it?. Be effective!

Then, don’t forget to consider %capacity of the team that probably involved on Design Sprint so we can include it into capacity calculation during a sprint planning.

5. There’s no any other methodology other than design sprint to produce a great product backlog

There’s no silver bullet. :))

So, what is the best way to accommodate Design Sprint into Scrum?

Design Sprint is one of great way in order to produce high quality backlog, which is something that Scrum framework not really told deeper. So, it’s complementary. Just do Design Sprint separately with Scrum sprint so our product backlog pipeline will always filled with a great one. And just do Scrum sprint as usual as long we have list of product backlog and Sprint goal.

Hope those can help. If it’s still confusing? let’s meetup in our next meetup!

Jakarta WordPress Meetup Pertama, @atamerica #WPJKT

Sebenarnya ini acara sudah dari 25 Maret 2014 lalu tapi belum sempat terus diposting karena kalah dengan prioritas tugas-tugas negara.

Ini merupakan kali pertama Jakarta WordPress Meetup #WPJKT dilaksanakan (sekarang sudah yang ke-3). Dilaksanakan di AtAmerica, Pacific Place, acara ini ditujukan kepada seluruh WordPress enthusiast dengan mendaftar terlebih dahulu via eventbrite. Seperti biasanya acara ini diinisiasi oleh tak lain dan tak bukan WordPress Evangelist-nya Indonesia yaitu mas Valent Mustamin.

Singkat cerita (karena sebenernya udah agak lupa sama isinya tapi masih ingat sebagian), pada meetup kali ini dibahas soal bagaimana potensi WordPress agency untuk masuk pasar Indonesia. Hadir sebagai narasumber Mr. Kengyu Nakamura, CEO Prime Strategy Group Japan; Kaspito Hutagalung, CEO Colorlabs, Bandung; dan Renny Smith, Digital Query (based in London kalo tidak salah ingat). Kengyu dan Renny banyak bercerita soal bagimana perusahaan mereka berkembang dengan berpegang dengan platform WordPress. Mereka banyak berbagi soal bagaimana potensi, kiat-kiat, dan strategi yang harus diambil dalam melaksanakan seluruh project mereka yang berbasis WordPress. Sedangkan Kaspito banyak bercerita soal bagaimana Colorlabs di Indonesia membuktikan dapat berkembang sampai sekarang dengan berpegang pada platform WordPress.

Banyak sekali pertanyaan yang hadir dari peserta baik soal teknologi, bahkan sampai bagaimana memanage developer, komunitas, dan sisi non-teknis lainnya. Di tengah sesi pertanyaan Kengyu sempat agak kewalahan memahami kompleksnya isi pertanyaan dari peserta. Sampai ada salah satu peserta yaitu Mas Bowo yang berusaha memakai bahasa Jepang untuk membantu beliau memahami pertanyaannya. So far acara ini seru banget sih karena begitu interaktif dan terbukti perbedaan bahasa tidak menghalangi kita untuk saling berbagi.
