    Scrum Club System Scrum Club System Presentation Transcript

    • Scrum Club System Overview
    • Problem: How do we bring more startups to LA?
      • Startups bring money and jobs to LA, boosting the economy
      • To attract more startups we need:
        • Ways to get funding
        • A community to network in
        • People to hire
        • A system of support for the people who are hired
    • Solution: Strengthen our Community
      • Implement a system that supports the centralization and funding of our groups
      • Identify groups we need but don’t have
      • Have the groups work toward a shared goal
      • Highlight the efforts of the groups in an annual event that draws attention to the startup community
    • Background
      • Agile Product Management is the art of designing a complex product so that as development progresses, the cost of change stays stable
      • After you design your product, you need to do projects
      • Scrum is a project management methodology that delivers software projects faster / better / cheaper and yields results sooner
    • Premise
      • Agile Product Management + Scrum Project Management increases the likelihood that a product can be brought successfully to market
      • By providing a community framework in which to learn Agile and Scrum across an entire startup, LA startups will be able to make better choices and be more successful
      • An environment of success attracts more startups and helps us retain college graduates to staff them
    • The Scrum Club System
      • A few small tweaks and elements added to the existing Los Angeles tech community to help unify the groups
      • Like SaaS, the components of the system are small “differentiators” not end-to-end solutions
    • Solution Components Facebook App Fundraiser Charitable Giving Program Lecture Series Contest Product Manager User Group In progress Planned
    • Lecture Series: Code Show
      • The lecture series features speakers from existing groups in a planned structure to support product design
      • Each speaker explains how they do their job, various concerns
      • Sponsorship is sold in a “package”
        • 10 lecture series
        • Website placement
        • Contest sponsorship
    • Product Manager User Group
      • A lab that follows each lecture as a “think tank” on the planning of a new product
      • Participants work together on their product ideas one night a month
      • We start from basically pitching our ideas to reviewing each other’s 10 card decks and business plans
      • Participants are invited to bring their ideas to the Code Show “Startup Weekend”
      • Training on how to run a project using Scrum
    • Contest: Code Show Weekend
      • Participants in the lab bring their 10 card decks and ideas to the event
      • Developers show up and pick the idea they want to work on
      • Teams compete to develop the product over the weekend
      • Everyone gets to try running Scrum as the facilitation process
      • The most launchable product which is likely to earn revenue wins the contest purse: enough to pay bounties to the team and fund development of the product for 6 months
    • Fundraiser: Corporate Espionage
      • It is very likely that the LA tech community has an abundance of some types of groups and lacks role support groups, i,.e.) Project Manager, QA, Customer Service
      • The startup community would benefit from having these types of groups to help support recruiting and skill building
      • These groups traditionally have a hard time getting sponsorship
      • By providing a unique consumer product and fundraising activity, we can support quality events for these groups
      • The card game also makes a great college group fundraiser… immediately following the Code Show Weekend, we can start an outreach effort to the colleges and offer to help students fundraise for their clubs
    • Charitable Giving Program: Scrum for Humanity
      • Scrum Club is a non-profit with a charitable mission: to help tech folks upgrade skills while working on projects for charity
      • This mission and supporting activities make sponsorship dollars donated to the club tax deductible
    • Facebook App
      • An online version of the card game
      • Markets the club
      • Premium content model funds the club
