How Can Agile Leaders Predict the True Effort Behind a Sprint Plan?

The main challenge of product owners and scrum masters is to ensure the quality of product backlog items, and ensuring the product backlog is clear and visible to everyone in the organization. They are also responsible for optimizing the development team’s workflow, to ensure they deliver the backlog items most valuable for customers.

To achieve these goals, agile leaders need visibility and insights to each and every quality risk. This would make it possible to build a crystal clear plan for developers, enumerating the true effort involved in each backlog item, including development, testing, and technical debt. It would also enable effective management of sprint retrospectives, identifying how each sprint item contributed, positively or negatively, to product quality.

Key Challenges of Product Owners and Scrum Masters.

Product owners and scrum masters have the following key challenges with respect to managing and improving software quality:

Traceability of Quality Risks from Planning to Production.

Development executives need a robust way to enforce quality measures at high velocity, across multiple software projects with high complexity and a wide range of tooling and infrastructure.

Smart Development Planning.

Product owners and scrum masters spend much of their time identifying high value product features and planning their development, but have very low visibility over the impact of quality for each feature or software change. They need this data to create effective sprint plans that balance new functionality with quality and stability.

Increase Development Efficiency and Quality.

Product owners and scrum masters need to know which parts of a software product are more susceptible to bugs and defects, and also the completeness of testing for each. This allows them to focus on high risk areas of the code so they can They could then build reliable software first-time and reduce rework.

SeaLights Software Quality Governance.

SeaLights Software Quality Governance is the only solution that can help product owners and scrum masters automatically identify, manage, and control every perceivable quality risk across the entire end-to-end delivery pipeline, for every single software change.

Identify Test Gaps and Prioritize Development Activity.

Product owners and scrum masters find it difficult to identify which software components are robust and sufficiently tested, and which require an investment in testing. This makes it more difficult to effectively plan sprints.

SeaLights Quality Governance analyzes test execution data and correlates it with changes to the codebase and actual production usage, identifying Test Gaps—critical product functionality that is not tested or is missing specific types of tests. Product owners and scrum masters can use this information to prioritize development tasks vs. investment in testing.

Risk Analysis of Every Change in Every Build.

Risk Analysis of Every Change in Every Build.

Product owners and scrum masters need visibility across all builds in their pipelines to understand product quality and the impact on development velocity. Modern development teams run numerous builds every day; some are good candidates for promotion, while others have severe quality issues.

SeaLights Quality Governance leverages big data and the power of AI/ML to analyze every change in every build, giving product owners and scrum masters clear metrics about quality risks. When a build introduces a quality risk, teams automatically receive feedback and can immediately resolve the problem. Agile leadership can drive innovation with clear guidance about quality issues and technical debt.

Visibility into the Effectiveness of Tests.

Product owners and scrum masters invest a lot of time planning sprints with high value product features, but many of those features don’t make it to production, or worse – are promoted and cause production defects, because of lack of effective testing.

SeaLights Quality Governance gives product owners and scrum masters complete visibility into the effectiveness of tests, allowing them to plan sprints with test quality in mind. They can discover:

Which existing tests are not really effective—“too many tests”—and remove them to save maintenance time.
Which tests are missing for critical parts of the product—“too few tests”—and add them to their testing plans.
