Re: [scrumdevelopment] Implementation of Scrum in a Professional Services/Implementation environment
- Hi John,The short answer is yes, Scrum can be very effective to manage this sort of work.It sounds like Scrum could be useful for pulling the team(s) together and also getting a common backlog of implementation and consulting together.
There is probably some applicability of LEAN to these processes too, since once you've pulled together the work there will be repeatable work, cues, bottlenecks, waiting, and other areas that throughput can be improved.Hope this helps,cheers,Robin Dymond.

I've just taken over a PMO in a company that develops and implements a

Client services team(s) processes and methods for implementing client

major overhaul. I'm wondering if anyone out there has experience in
implementing Scrum into a Professional Services/Implmentation
environment and could share any thoughts/ideas/templates.
