  • What is Scrum?• Scrum is a framework for iterative, incremental development.• Three roles: Product Owner, ScrumMaster and the Team.• Four meetings: Sprint Planning meeting, Daily Scrum, Sprint Review and Retrospective
  • The Scrum flow.
  • Scrum is ‘Hard andDisruptive’ “Change is extremely difficult and fraught with conflict, and may take many years of sustained effort. Turnover of staff and management can be expected.
  • Scrum is SystemicChange “When the five shifts are undertaken simultaneously, as systemic change, the result is sustainable change that is markedly productive for the organization, more congenial to innovation, and more satisfying both for those doing the work and those for whom the work is done.• Ref: http://www.forbes.com/sites/stevedenning/ 2011/05/12/reinventing-management-requires-systemic- change/
  • So why would youwant to do it? “An enterprise can use Scrum as a tool to become the best product development and management organization in its market. Scrum will highlight every deficiency and impediment that the enterprise has so the enterprise can fix them and change into such an organization.
  • Top Down• Scrum adoption is introduced and lead by Senior management ...• Who decide that they want software to be quicker, faster and cheaper• They decide the way to do this is by adopting Agile software development
  • Top Down• This is done without understanding the implications of Scrum, and without understanding how this changes:• How people work• How people collaborate• Impact to other business partners
  • Bottom Up• Scrum adoption is introduced and lead but the people who do the work ...• Who decide that they want better quality products, delivered at a sustainable pace• They decide the way to do this is by adopting Agile software development
  • Bottom Up• This is done without understanding the implications of Scrum, and without understanding how this changes:• Middle and Senior management perceptions• Change to the roles, responsibilities expected of management• Impact on other business partners
  • Kane’s secret formula1. Top Down and Bottom Up both at the same time2. Start small and plan for a growing number of Scrum projects3. Target failed or at risk projects ...4. With contained financial and political risk
  • Questions?• I have some questions for you!• How far up (or down) the organization is Scrum supported within your organization?• Does your management see problems as a learning opportunity?• Is your organization open to changing it’s culture?
  • Thank you!• Kane Mar Scrum Trainer and Coach http://Scrumology.com• Boost New Media http://Boost.co.nz
