  10. 10. Small BusinessesSometime between Childhood and Adulthood we lose… “Your time is limited, don’t waste it living someone else’s The Ability to Think life. Don’t be trapped by The Ability to Question dogma, which is living the The Ability to Play and Work result of other people’s The Ability to Learn thinking. Don’t let the noise The Ability to be Happy of others’ opinions drown your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition; they somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” -Steve Jobs10 Copyright ©2012 CollabNet, Inc. All Rights Reserved.

  14. 14. Must be a Learning Organization • Scrum won’t solve your problems. Scrum will discover underlying problems in your organization. It’s your job as managers and executives to solve the problems Scrum unearths using a framework CollabNet can teach you. • Scrum doesn’t work when: – You believe that your organization doesn’t have problems – Politically or culturally you can’t solve problems • Scrum works when – You have a learning organization. One where the leadership sees solving problems as a means to a better company. Jeff Sutherland14 Copyright ©2012 CollabNet, Inc. All Rights Reserved.
