Scrum Gathering Shanghai - April 2010

  1. 1. Scrum & XP Scrum Gathering, Shanghai
  2. 2. Scrum and XP • Title: Scrum and XP: Myths, truths and how to do it. • Description: Scrum and Extreme Programming are two common Agile frameworks. You may have heard that Scrum is equivalent to XP without technical practices. Or, perhaps you have heard that Scrum is only a project management framework. The presentation intents to explore the truth in these matters and to discuss how to effectively integrate the XP technical practices within the Scrum framework.

  12. 12. Some differences of Scrum and XP • Scrum is agnostic with regard to technical practices • The Scrum model for Roles and Responsibilities is better defined • The Scrum Timeboxes (meetings) are better defined • Scrum explicitly lists Scrum artifacts: Product Backlog, Sprint Backlog, Release Burndown, and Sprint Burndown
  13. 13. Some differences of Scrum and XP • The XP model for technical practices is better defined • The XP model for a Continuous Process is better defined • XP introduces concepts that make delivering “an increment of potentially shippable code” possible
  14. 14. Scrum + XP What would happen if we take the best of Scrum and combine it with the best of Extreme Programming?
  15. 15. XP@Scrum and XBreed • XP@Scrum - Ken Schwaber’s initial ideas of combining Scrum and XP • XBreed - Mike Beedle’s ideas about combining Scrum and XP

  19. 19. Combining Scrum & XP • Avoid ... mandating that all XP technical practices be adopter. Rather, educate teams on the different practices and allow them to decide when and how to adopt them. • Avoid ... unrealistic expectations. Rather, recognize that this is a paradigm shift in how teams write and deliver software, and expect that this will take time. • Avoid ... adopting Scrum without changing technical practices. Rather, recognize the limitations of existing technical practices and educate teams in the XP technical practices and their implications.
  20. 20. A Quote “Most high performance teams use Scrum and XP together.”
  21. 21. Higher Performance • By using XP Technical practices we can deliver high quality software at the end of every Sprint • And, it’s only when we can deliver high quality software on a regular basis that we can know the true rate at which we can deliver functionality to the business • Combining Scrum and XP is a powerful way of taking your team to the next level
  22. 22. Build something beautiful and inspiring!
