Scrummy Bums: Adventures in Agile Process
Comments are closed.
This was so helpful, especially for someone working on a team that could possibly transition from waterfall to agile. I appreciate the presenter's vulnerability in admitting that his team still struggles to do agile correctly.
As the leader of a small team (3), I have been toying with adopting Agile/SCRUM techniques off and on for the past few years. I read a book on it and then adjusted how we do things.. some.. but I have to say your recommendation to go in full force, and change how we do things.. and then make small tweaks *if* things don't work from there.. isn't something I considered.
I would have liked to have heard more about what *is* working for you and your team.. or at least as much about what does work, and less about what didn't work.. however, it was helpful to hear what didn't work for you.
You're well spoken and verbal skills are outstanding; your presentation/slides could use a little work; or maybe eliminate some of the in-between ones and focus on some of the main quotes/points more closely.
I really appreciated this talk. There was a lot of history about the Whole Foods development teams and the transitions that they have made. I think that part could be condensed so that more of the core Scrum/Agile methods that they have landed on that work could be focused on. I certainly enjoyed the information presented. The presenter's style was easy to listen to and smooth.
