Purpose: Sharing the experience and practical steps from projects that Systematic Software Engineering co. has used to ensure high performance scrum teams.
Focus: Provide specific tips and tricks to other agile projects on best practices and pitfalls, as Systematic has uncovered them
Perspective: Jeff Sutherland will - based on his extensive experience and insight - put the above experiences into the perspective of what best practices constitutes a "mature scrum".
The overall theme will be a presentation of specific experiences from Systematic and suggestions on best practices based upon them.
Process/Mechanics: Initially a scrum adoption model will be presented to provide an overview of where the experiences and related practices belong. Selected scenarios or experiences will be presented for short discussion and then we will present the specific experience from Systematic and put them into perspective to other scrums in the world as seen by Jeff to summarize recommendations or suggested best practices.
Learning outcomes: You will learn the specific practices to bring a ScrumBut into a Great Scrum, what the typical pitfalls are, and what others have done to address them. The focus will be on practices for higher performing scrum and less on typical initial problems of adopting Scrum. You will also learn which scrum practices are valued by investors.
