An Advent Calendar is a special calendar that counts the days to reminded us that Christmas is approaching. Originating from Germany in the late 19th century the advents calendars offer a sweet, little piece of chocolate or another treat each day when one of the 24 shutters are opened.

I assembled 24 Practices for that might benefit you as Agile coach, Scrum master or Agile practitioner. Join me in this online countdown.

Tip 7: Be aware that the challenges you’ll need to pay attention to shift over time.
Organizations that start with agile often have a strong focus on the teams. When the individual teams hit their stride, the focus shifts to the way the teams collaborate. Organizations increasingly start to understand that business agility and responsiveness are key to survive and stay ahead of the competition. In order to yield value, the work of single scrum teams should, therefore, be integrated and embedded in larger business processes. In the second wave of adoption the single team focus shifts to a wider organizational approach and teams initialize cross team collaboration with a focus on a continues delivery. Once teams have learned to plan and launch collectively built releases the focus shifts from realizing technical products to business delivery. In the 3rd wave of adoption the performance dialogue will transient from a release focus to a focus on business impact. From this we can learn that as organizations continue on her agile journey their agile challenges shift. So does the role of the agile coach. We should develop ourselves to be able to support the people we work with. Click here to see the 3-wave model.
