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.

How do you properly staff when you have 2 programs that will have different levels of requirements over a 12 month period sharing the same group of 26 development teams? Basically a program to develop applications on a new platform and a program to continue supporting applications on the existing platform. Is it ok to have teams move between programs every few sprints, for example, based on demand? It’s not possible to dedicate X number of teams to each because the requirements for the new platform are not yet well understood, so a work in progress.

Our scrum team adds enough work to keep the developers busy during the sprint but we are always rolling over due to the QA not being completed. How do we get out of that cycle? If we reduce what we put in the sprint, then Devs may be looking for work mid sprint.
