Tribal Scrum• Dave Logan (January 2012) “Make your meetings hyper-productive and fun” “How Scrum + Tribal Leadership Will Change the World”• What’s missing in Tribal Leadership has been a specific game that great tribes can play against other great tribes. I believe Scrum is that game.• First, let’s be clear that Tribal Scrum will not result from a single person piecing it together and declaring that they have the answer.• Second, everyone needs to get immersed in both Tribal Leadership and Scrum.• Third, Tribal Scrum will result from lots and lots of experiments — some successful and some not, by combining the two approaches.• Fourth, the community needs to determine the winning approaches here, based on adherence to values and contribution measured by merit.• Fifth, we should eat our own dog food. We need a venue, identification of community values, selection of a noble cause, commitment to Scrum and Tribal Leadership. Copyright (c) 2012 Sinan Si Alhir. All rights reserved.
