RE: [scrumdevelopment] Tools, Scrum Differentiation
- Chiming in to promote the theme: How is that
Scrum was originally appealing to me because it seemed
a balanced and thought-out approach to the "rush-mode
list based management" that seems to happen just after
a formal process has broken down. (And feature
priorities are truly prioritized, daily meetings,
short-term delivery dates....)
This feature primarily benefits adoption and training,
but as you say has a "I already do that" possibility
when folks don't look at the other features of
boundaries, values, metrics...

Can I ask ways that you differentiated?
My hope was to hear that someone has implemented Scrum
into a data extendable Wiki such as TWiki or ZWiki.
This would allow mixing lightweight documentation w/
communication value encouragement into the daily entry
On a slightly tangential note I was wondering if the
following into article is available, or could be
collaboratively built. I'd like a 1 or 2 page article
describing the fundamentals of Scrum, environment and
benefits. Titled either "Are you ready for Scrum?" or
"Is Scrum right for you?" Points would include: Areas
of failing in a current organization ("Do you
need...") from missing essentials to worthless bloat,
List of values Scrum embraces, followed by
implementation details such as "Do your team members
have 5 minutes a day for team communication?, Does
your Manager have 10 minutes a day for
This does seem to lend itself towards evangelizing
canvassing and pamphlets. Potentially at trade-shows,
but also as an adoption tool and desktop reference.
Please forgive me if I've overlooked something
