There are several different views on what Scrum really is. Is it a software development methodology? A project management method? Just a framework?
I like to view it as a debugger.
Organisations, like software, do have defects.
Scrum is specifically designed to surface problems, and it has some means to deal with these problems.
In this talk I will discuss how Scrum, combined with an Agile mindset, can be a powerful tool for changing oragnisations for the better. By using real life examples.
I will highlight three vital mechanisms:
- The Scrum Master role
- Impediment removal
- Powerful retrospectives
People coming to this talk will get ideas for how to get more out of their agility, how to vitalise their Scrum implementation and how to challenge the status quo.
