My team/organization is just starting to use agile principles. The team consists of a few business analysts that support three development teams by fleshing out requirements. I'm new to the team and the first product role in the organization.We currently have issues limiting work in progress and getting colleagues to commit to deadlines. My experience with Scrum is extremely positive and I'd like to get our team using scrum principles. Currently Kanban is used and Scrums is viewed with trepidation.Could you highlight a few limitations of kanban-only processes, and how you see scrum as an effective way of working?Thanks,CJ

i recently became certified as a PSM. i work in an IT org who hasn't yet adopted scrum. i work on a portfolio management team and one of our initiatives is to convince and guide the leadership to adopt a full agile/scrum transformation. i am on a personal mission to equip the teams with scrum values and scrum principles in small ways with every interaction. What i'm up against is a culture that works with a project mindset not a product mindset. the leaders and stakeholders are more concerned with meeting due dates and overlooking the importance of quality and speed of delivery. what advice do you have?

How can we handle this situation as a scrum master-> My team is new and taking more than few sprints to come up to spead (no one to guide the team technically, due to technical competencies, new environment, etc.). I as scrum master is trying to help the team fix these slowly and steadly, however the management is looking for results and so do the clients. Any different way of dealing this scenario?

Also, I am on a project helping a telecom company to implement Scrum, however, the development theam is new to Scrum and they want to make use of a hybrid framework where they use a waterfall approach for deliverables but Scrum tools to manage the project. This has generated confusion in the team and directly affects the Sprint Goal results. Any recommendation?

What’s the best way to facilitate a team through Scrum sprints where they do not know how to use Scrum (or not very well)? Should we train people first or try and teach as we go, for example? Again, for non-developer teams.
