  12. 12. www.xebia.com Scrum … • … gets things done • … is transparent • … makes me happy • … is scalable So why do I need more tooling? Doesn’t Scrum fulfill all my project needs? © Xebia 2009 page 12
  13. 13. www.xebia.com Scaling Scrum Company size Company management Scrum support team Scrum of Product owners Scrums Team A PO Team B PO Team C PO © Xebia 2009 page 13
  14. 14. www.xebia.com Consider this COTS Product D: Big budgets, Soled by company Z tight deadlines Infrastructure Stakeholder A Hosted at company Y Stakeholder A Stakeholder A Stakeholder A All components need to Stakeholder AA Stakeholder work together Stakeholder Z Migration of the old data into the new system Users need Software component A: extensive training Build in-house Overall alignment of components is crucial Software component B: Software component C: Build in-house Build by company X © Xebia 2009 page 14
  15. 15. www.xebia.com Okay, so lets compare Scrum is about the Prince2 is about team getting the work creating a controlled Done environment Scrum will get me Prince2 helps transparency: what is identifying and the real status managing project risks Both are business Scrum scales perfectly: value driven Prince2 can be used for multiple teams, multiple managing complex product owners Both emphasize projects adapting the method to your environment Prince2 gives real Agile planning rules! attention to starting & finishing projects Prince2 says little about Scrum says little about how you get the “actual project management work” done © Xebia 2009 page 15

  18. 18. www.xebia.com Okay, some process mapping Continues planning Enhanced Burndown chart Backlog management Progress monitoring & communication by working software Task Board Burndown chart Impediment list Incorporated testing & QA Empowered teams © Xebia 2009 page 18
  19. 19. www.xebia.com Reporting and planning • Burndown charts, task boards etc. direct input for checkpoint reports • Highlight reports easily derived from the above • Sprint planning equals team plan • Well known velocity and enhanced burndown charts help guarding the project steering parameters © Xebia 2009 page 19
  20. 20. www.xebia.com Think about • How many sprints should be a stage … • What steering parameters do we use … • Is the Senior User the product owner … • Or can the PM be proxy product owner … • How do we do architecture … • Etc … There are no cookbooks to follow and be right! You need to think about these things when starting up a project … And then inspect & adapt as you go along!!! © Xebia 2009 page 20

  22. 22. www.xebia.com Some do’s & don'ts Do: Use Scrum & Prince2 Don’t: when complex Use Prince2 stand- (previous slide) alone for software projects Don’t: Don’t: Do: Use any methodology Use Prince2 and Plan-Do-Check-Act just by the book: don’t Scrum for pure in- Taylor the methods be a template zombie! house software constantly to development continuously improve Do: Do: Don’t: People and Interactions Use Prince2 & Scrum in Rely on checklist’s and over Processes and combination with other mechanical process tools relevant tools mapping (e.g. AgileUP: that’s a whole new subject) © Xebia 2009 page 22
  23. 23. www.xebia.com Conclusion When the project environment is complex, you can benefit from combining methodologies that supplement each other, Such as Prince2 & Scrum As long as you use tools to help you out, instead of blindly following the tools manual! Individuals and Interactions over Process and Tools © Xebia 2009 page 23
  24. 24. www.xebia.com THE POINT IS … (EXTENDED) Using a combination of the right tools can help you do a complicated job! As long a common sense prevails and you keep doing “plan, do, check, act” © Xebia 2009 page 24
