  3. 3. Scrum as a Foundation ▪ Very simple ▪ Team decides on level of ceremony ▪ Regular feedback ▪ Queuing theory, reduced handoffs ▪ Transparency ▪ Focus effort and prioritisation ▪ Ownership ▪ Potentially 'shippable' products
  4. 4. Scrum is still the “King” of Agile methods ▪ But the largest benefits come from a a hybrid approach ▪ E.g.

  5. 5. DAD as a Scrum Hybrid “The Disciplined Agile Delivery decision process framework is a people-first, learning-oriented hybrid agile approach to IT solution delivery. It has a riskvalue delivery lifecycle, is goaldriven, is enterprise aware, and is scalable.”
  6. 6. DAD Roles ▪ Recognition that other roles need to exist ▪ Architecture will be a focus for complex solutions ▪ Not all the skills and responsibilities of an organisation can be in the team
  7. 7. Agile Team Leader ▪ Can we expect all Agile teams to be completely self-organising? ▪ Some “leadership” may be required ▪ An extension to the Scrum Master role ▪ Not management, true leadership ▪ A “servant leader”
