Capri to donate 10% of all proceeds to Nepal Earthquake Appeal

 

On the 25th April at 11:56 NST a 7.8 Magnitude earthquake hit Nepal, which devastated the nation and its people, killing over 7,000 people and injuring nearly 15,000. 3 million people have been left starving and in need of food, 130,000 houses have been destroyed, 24,000 people are living in makeshift shanty towns and 1000’s of children have been separated from their families.

To try and aid the millions in need and support the charity workers who travelled from around the world to help, Capri will be donating 10% of all of its training course proceeds for the whole of May to the Nepal Earthquake appeal – this includes our Agile Master Class beginning on the 23rd and our User Story Writing workshop on the 30th.

View our courses and register here.

Even if you’re not booking a course with us, please donate to the appeal anyway; people need your help. You can donate here.

Thank you.

Scrum team failing consistently?

We love firefighters! Don’t we? They are Heroes! But not in software development. In any Scrum software development, very few teams actually manage to find the time to refine and properly compose their stories (user requirements). Because of this, they’re constantly taking time to try and analyse the software requirements during the projects sprints.

This inevitably results in stories being rushed, ill defined, slapdash and careless. This delays the development of the software and  testing, which  should be a major activities, is compressed and squashed into just the last one or two days of the sprint.

And the result?scrum

Firfighting !!!!

The result, is of course, defect in the code. The team then starts firefighting, to try and fix the problems that were born of their ill planning. However, because they’re so caught up in their self-imposed firefighting, they don’t have time to analyse and create competent stories for the next sprint, so they dive right back into the vicious cycle of firefighting.
