My advice: Read and understand the "Agile manifesto". Decode the values and principles by relating to a project problem statement.

One idea is: consider accepting that "there are no best practices; only better ones."

I find this simple idea helps clarify uncertainty is a normal part of delivery, experiments facilitate learning and improving, open-mindedness of others' views leads to better understanding/collaboration/opportunities, and realizing there is no one-size-fits-all methodology/framework/tool/etc. to solve all challenges.

My advice would be to focus on the first agile principle, "Our highest priority is to satisfy the customer through early and continuous delivery of valuable software." and try to understand why early and continuous delivery of value is so important, and how to start doing that.

An understanding of the Agile manifesto is critical to building an Agile Mindset, continuous practice, will build the culture. I'd also borrow from my experience to say, it's more important to be Agile than to be stuck in any framework (Lean, Scrum etc.). Being agile requires flexibility and adaptability.

My advice is to do your research. Doing that first step to expand your knowledge will get you very far.

My advice:

  1. Allow yourself and your team to fail forward and continue to learn + improve.
  2. Understand the Agile Manifesto, Values and Principles.
  3. Understand that Agile is not Scrum and Scrum is not Agile.
  4. Using tools do not make you Agile.
  5. Keep value in mind when talking through solutions.

My advice:  keep in mind the top priority, to focus on get done the WIP.

My advice is to read all agile manifesto and its rules to develop the agile mindset to develop and enhance the future ideas of your teammates so that every team member has the rights to share its ideas .

My advice would be first to get acquainted with agile manifesto- values and principles. Try to think and implement them in your current work. Do your research and bring innovative solutions, communicate them well with your team members and take feedback. Respecting your team members is crucial. Agile mindset will certainly develop with some practice.

My advice would be to understand and practice daily the values and principles of agile. Observe how your team and other teams practice this and take best practices and incorporate others best practices.

I would advice my new team member to be an active participant so as to be able to catch up on the latest developments as well as participate in all scrum events and also use Jira on a daily basis to develop a good habit.

I would advice my new team member to take each day as a fresh start,  everyday you could do different wonderful things.  Never judge any thought yourself,  be open and feel free to communicate.  There are no bad questions.  Move ahead as a team,  feel an important part of the team.

Team members are most resistant to the daily standups but once they see how efficient and effective they are, they change their minds.  It is wonderful to identify and eliminate roadblocks quickly!

My Advice to New team member  : Make him well versed with Agile Concept and benefit over traditional approach.

Make him familiar with agile framework, tools so that he/she can feel the ease of working on the agile concept.

Need to make the stand up meeting in-formal and joyful to avoid resistance from team members.

A good way to get started is to understand the 4 core values of Agile and it's 12 principles. Then reflect how these values and principles apply to your project. Also remember, transparent communication is heart of Agile.

In addition to an agile mindset, new teammates may need tools that support learning and maintaining agile habits.  Spinach.io helps teams of all sizes run a fast, efficient standup that stays focused on sprint goals. Tools can really help build healthy team habits!

Keep the Four Values Of Agile in mind in your daily activities and see how they apply. Agile is a mindset. It takes practice and some getting used to, but once you start seeing its benefits, you're well on your way to taking complex tasks and breaking them down simply and efficiently.
