Celebrate your Agile/Scrum milestones

Last week I was reading Celebrate Your Milestones at the WordPress blog. Which made me realise that with some of the Agile teams I was in, we did just that!

Things we celebrated were:cake

  • each sprint we finished
  • each x points of business value we delivered
  • completing all the features of an epic

Setting these goals resulted in more commitment and more motivation in the team. By the bonding that we got from celebrating these milestones, we had very good communication and openness in our team. Next to these team milestones, people had their personal milestones. Thanks to the bonding, people shared celebrating their personal milestones with the team by bringing cake 🙂

Conclusion is that celebrating milestones will help in creating efficient and committed teams.
