Scrum Success: Hipaa Privcay/MRRM at DOD - MHS
A few months ago I announced that we had started a
Scrum project with the goal of delivering the
Hipaa Privacy/Medical Records Request solution for
DOD-MHS (Department of Defense Military Health
System). I just wanted to add:
the system has been deployed to production
(This system services 530 facilities around the world.)
In that same time we also delivered a similar solution
for Bayhealth: http://www.hipaaccelerator.com/press.html#PR102203
and created several shrink-wrapped products.
This is an example of how multiple Scrum projects
can coexist and interact reusing components through
the expanded set of practices we call XBreed. (The same
techniques that have been used to develop multiple
applications over the last 6 years and that were
greatly enhanced at one of our consulting engagements:
Our immediate challenge will continue through the management
of several concurrent custom-solution projects and the
creation and maintenance of new and existing products.
Our current target for this year is 10 or so large
concurrent customers and the creation of 24 new products
(packages) for different compliance industries.
Scrum, with good Marketing and Sales, Strategic Alliances,
a high-dose of innovation and the contribution of
GREAT PEOPLE are the key ingredients of our success.
But in terms of management, we simply could not deliver
as much software as we do without Scrum.
I know I am preaching to the choir but a drop of
enthusiasm and shared success stories never hurt anyone.

- On March 25 and 26, the certified ScrumMaster course will be somewhat
different. This Certified ScrumMaster class will be held in the Chaminade
conference resort in Santa Cruz, California. I'm trying this type of setting
to get focused time that is more difficult in cities or in hotels. Since
this is a trial, the only cost to attendees other than the regular
registration fee of $600 is the room cost of $159 per night. All food and
meals are included in the registration fee.
I think this will be fun, so I wanted everyone to know about it so they can
consider coming as well as let their friends know. Santa Cruz in the winter
for $159 per day, and getting to talk about Scrum! Life is good.

Do I contradict myself? Very well then I contradict myself.
