Being onboarded into a product management and scrum master role next week. Any tips for reducing the learning curve/best practices for backfilling a pre existing role?

V1 - based on my experience, the reason it’s difficult is typically a client agrees to a set of deliverables (usually features) for your SOW. In the practice, with lean principles, you often don’t know what you’re building that far in advance. So you’re heading toward a fixed delivery milestone for a set of features or product that more than likely has not yet been validated by users. It take a lot of training/sales for the client to be willing to accept that variability on what they’re paying for. The idea in agile is you punt on what doesn’t fit in a sprint, but for consulting, you still need to deliver at the end.

Freddie Mac? The good, the bad, the ugly? I have a buddy that reached out and wants me to backfill a position that he used to work on. It would be a 20% pay increase, but the work is IT policy related which is what I've been doing. I personally want to get into cloud. He says I can move around once I get in.

So.... Design tests being part of the hiring process. How does everyone feel about these? I’ve run into them a few times while applying for work and spent weekends working on them with no hire by the end of the process. In a way I can see why they do it - but I’m also weirded out that my portfolio just isn’t enough. What’s everyone’s take? And does anyone do this in their hiring process?

I'd be making the move from EY which is a great company to work with - but there is such a long line up to get a promotion, and for roles I've interviewed for internally I get the good ole - you were awesome and it was rly close, but someone was just a better fit.
