The path from a developer to Product owner – change of responsibilities

Scrum technology is successful in bringing together both the end like the old and traditional system of production as well as the new methodical procedure for faster and better rate of production. The system also brings all the heads right from the workers to the owner under its fold. The owner decides what is to be produced and then the technical department along with the workers, the supervisors, team leaders and also all the departmental heads decide how this can be distributed.


The method and its utility:

The technology has made everything very transparent. The workers get to know what he has to, as in which department or segment they need to work on. This makes easy distribution of labor and no one is taxed because the distribution is sorted out beforehand. The workers put the best out and if they have any issues the supervisor and the team leader are there to sort things out fast. The quality of the produced goods is tested and since it is checked one becomes sure that the clients do not have anything to complain about. With the Safe 4.0 Adavanced Scrum Master Course in Melbourne the departmental heads know how to segregate the work. They make sure that the workers do not have any problem.

The very next thing that is dealt is the marketing strategy. Once the sales team bring in the report from the market, giving them a fair idea of the future of the product the marketing heads start planning which all measures to be taken and how they are going to maximize the profit limit of the company, much to the comfort of the stake holders, since more the company makes profit, more is their benefits. So the Scrum technology brings forward a concrete plan how to work in a more methodical way.

The other benefits:

The products which come out of the company gets distributed all over to the clients and also to the end users. Now this might as well be used by some other clients and since the quality is up to the mark they might as well get in touch of the company and orders for more. This is once again great news for the company. There are investors and again since the company is putting on the best of effort as well as making premium products might bring them many investors who want to invest funds for the production of the goods.

 

The main thing that Scrum brings is the proper coordination among all the segments and this help in maintaining the quality. The workers are connected to the supervisors, the supervisors are reporting to the team leaders with  Safe 4.0 Adavanced Scrum Master Certification and they report to the departmental heads. The chain way that is maintained is what the strength of the company. So the technology not only helps in produce the goods at a faster rate it also works with coordination and that is the reason they do not mess up with the quality of the production of the goods.

The minister said the Centre has laid emphasis on creating centres of excellence in higher education and IIT, Jammu was a step towards that direction, adding that the government has also launched a free online coaching programme for IIT aspirants.

He said the inauguration of IIT, Jammu was delayed due to a land problem.

Javadekar announced Rs 100 crore for NIT, Srinagar under a special plan this year to facilitate research and development.

He said a fund of Rs 1,000 crore has been earmarked in the Union Budget to create a finance agency and another Rs 1,000 crore is expected to come from a bank soon to create a kitty of Rs 2,000 crore for infrastructure building and research in IITs.

3,500 J&K students awarded special scholarship

More than 3,500 J&K students awarded special scholarship

New Delhi: The central government has this year awarded over 3,500 scholarships worth a total of Rs 75 crore under a special scheme for students from Jammu and Kashmir to enable them pursue higher education outside the state.

Out of more than 3,500 scholarships, Kashmir valley accounted for 1,329, Ladakh 26, and Jammu 2,255, said an official statement issued here on Sunday, citing Human Resource Development Minister Prakash Javadekar.

“Earlier, the quota for Jammu and Kashmir students in engineering colleges was limited to only 250, but this year, 1,430 students were granted admission in various reputed engineering colleges,” Javadekar said, adding that “more than 5,000 students had applied for the same”.

“Overall, Rs 75 crore worth of scholarships have been given this year under the special scholarship scheme,” he added.

Under the scheme, tuition fee up to Rs 1.25 lakh is borne by the government besides up to Rs one lakh for hostel and food expenses.

The government enhanced the quota from two seats to 10 seats in each engineering college.

Besides engineering, students are getting scholarships for nursing, medical sciences and hotel management courses.

In order to be eligible for the scholarship, the students must have passed higher secondary from a school in Jammu and Kashmir and their family income must be less than Rs six lakh a year.

The “tremendous” response to the scholarship has been due to the awareness workshops which were organised across the state in May this year, the government said.

Government urged to improve PG medical education

New Delhi: Association of National Board Accredited Institutions (ANBAI) has urged the government to improve and standardise the post-graduate medical education in order to address the shortages of doctors in the country.

The ANBAI, whose focus is to come up with innovative ideas in post-graduate medical teachings, has also said that there is a need to empower every medical staff to take primary-level medical decisions to bolster the healthcare system.

“Healthcare is the second largest industry in the world. Yet, India has approximately 300 medical colleges producing 30,000-35,000 graduates every year, while there is a need for 500 new medical colleges, producing one million doctors every year,” said Devi Shetty, Chairman, Narayana Health.

Speaking at the annual general meeting of the ANBAI, Shetty also urged the government to increase the payment of the medical staffs in every hospital, which would help them to reach more and more people and provide health services.

H.S. Chhabra, Medical Director of Indian Spinal Injuries Centre and the Secretary of the ANBAI said, “Through ANBAI we will continue to encourage innovative ideas in post-graduate medical teaching. The organisation uplifts the standards of the students, taking them to an international level.”

Currently, one woman dies in childbirth every 10 minutes, three lakh newborns die the day they are born while 1.2 million die before they reach the age of one.

“The unequal distribution of care, in terms of urban and rural populations is a worry, especially when it comes to the shortage of specialists. By increasing the number of postgraduate seats, if we can saturate the cities, there will be no choice but for doctors to go into smaller towns and villages,” said ANBAI President Alexander Thomas.

According to a study published in British Medical Journal, India has one government doctor for 11,528 people and one nurse for every 483 people, while as per the guidelines of World Health Organization there should be one doctor for every 1,000 people.

For second year in a row, mass failure at Delhi University’s law faculty

For second year in a row, mass failure at Delhi University's law faculty

New Delhi: For the second year in a row, around half of the first year students at Delhi University’s law faculty have failed in at least one subject, leading to protests by them.

The students alleged there was some problem with the results that were declared yesterday as some of them have been marked absent even though they appeared in the exam, while the scores of a few others were revised later.

The Faculty of Law has three centres – Law Centre I (LC I), Campus Law Centre (CLC) and Law Centre II (LC II). CLC usually admits the highest scorers of the entrance test.

A total of 882 students out of 1944 students have failed in at least one subject in the semester examination.

 

Delhi University's 5th and final cut-off list released; seats still available in several prominent colleges - Know details

“There seems to be some goof up in the result because I have failed in a subject I was very confident of scoring well. I will apply for rechecking,” said Ruchika Bhatt, a first-year student.

Another student Ritika Thakur said, “I am surprised to see the results, there has been some problem for sure, I will get my paper re-evaluated and find out what went wrong”.

Faculty of Law Dean, SC Raina, denied any mistakes and maintained that the students’ performance has been evaluated accurately.

“The papers have been checked properly and moderation is done following proper methods…What can go wrong? What can the faculty do if students don’t study and write their exams well,” Raina said.

Meanwhile, law faculty aspirants are agitated over a delay in admission counselling as well as the Bar Council of India’s recommendation to reduce the colleges’ seat intake by scrapping evening classes.

At least hundred aspirants had yesterday protested at Delhi University and the Delhi High Court against the delay.

The recommendation has been made after a committee of BCI, the apex regulatory body for legal education and the legal profession in India, submitted an adverse report about the infrastructure and quality of education being imparted at the centres of DU’s law faculty.

In an unprecedented move, BCI had in 2014 decided to derecognise DU’s law course after it failed to seek a timely extension of the affiliation of its three centres.

It was granted a provisional extension of affiliation for the 2014-15 session after DU had proposed to shift to a new building which it claimed “had adequate space” for the faculty to run properly.

However, after a fresh inspection by a BCI panel, the council had issued it a show-cause notice to DU to explain the “illegalities” in its functioning including more than permissible student strength, lack of infrastructure and faculty.

The council had in January communicated to the university to shut down colleges offering law courses in evening shifts, saying such programmes do not ensure proper quality of legal education.

Yoga to be introduced in primary schools in Goa

Yoga to be introduced in primary schools in Goa

Panaji: Yoga would be taught in primary schools in Goa, Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar on Tuesday told the Legislative Assembly.

“We have decided to introduce yoga at primary level. For this we have decided to appoint 60 master resource persons,” he said on demands for grants for the education department.

The Chief Minister, who holds the education portfolio among others, also said the ratio of students in primary schools (total number of children born in the state against those enrolled in schools) is 103, which means even the migrants who arrive here enrol their children in schools.

Stating that his government took a holistic view of the education, the CM said infrastructure facilities in primary schools were upgraded.

“In the last two years, 204 government primary schools were repaired and refurbished, spending Rs 41 crore,” he said.

The government is concerned about the declining number of students in state-run primary schools, but hopes that with upgraded infrastructure more students would enrol, he said.
