Why Do We Scrum? - ProductCamp Toronto-2016

When it comes to project management, people often don't understand why scrum process is needed. You may have Jira with a bunch of tasks and stand-up meetings, but it won't give you any understanding of how good is project going. Ultimately at each moment of time you want to be sure that everything will be delivered on time, and if not, discover issues sooner than later. So now you need to understand, and make other people on your team understand why is it all needed.
- How scrum can be used in non-agile environment?
- Why tasks are planned ahead once in the beginning of the sprint instead of giving tasks to people every day?
- Why and how stories should be divided into sub-tasks?
- How to understand, if your developers are doing good job, if you are a non-technical person?
