      Hi,
       
      here's some data about Siemens MED adoption of Scrum from a talk given by

      Sanjay Chaudhary in Munich last month:

       

      􀃖

      Dec’2000, start of collaboration with HS Malvern on development of

      Soarian product

      􀃖

      Chief architect from SISL – hence knowledge on architecture/design

      available within

      􀃖

      Distributed development with teams and modules being spread across

      different continents :

      􀃖

      Domain specialists / Product Analysts based at Malvern

      􀃖

      Majority of development team based in Bangalore

      􀃖

      Development started with a team of size 14, which was eventually

      ramped up to 247

      􀃖

      Development was started based on waterfall model

      􀃖

      May 2005 - decision to switch to Agile/Scrum methodology to be

      adopted for the development activities

       

      From what I've heard about Siemens MED in Malvern and the Soarian project is, that they adopted User Centred Design already in 2001 or so. This process is iterative and works with interdisziplinary teams as well.

      Although they used large textual Use Cases extensively, I wouldn't say the process was waterfall like.

      Paul,
       
      We have close to 100 sprints ongoing at any given time and it is growing.

      Can't recall exactly where I heard this, given I have been rubbing
      elbows with many Scrum aficionados in the past several years. Stats
      in which I would have an interest would be size of organization, i.e.
      number of people engaged in Scrum, possibly number of sprints
      ongoing, and anything else anyone can offer of value.
