Agile Clinic at the Conference

Agile Clinic

Do You Scrum? Many companies claim that they practice Scrum. Is Scrum imposed on your team? Do the team members and organization understand the values of Scrum? Or are they “driving” the team under the guise of Scrum with more meetings? You may be practicing the darker version of Scrum - The Dark Scrum. This version of Scrum may be dangerous to the well-being of the the team and and the company as a whole. If you are new to Scrum, it is an iterative, incremental framework for product development. If you practice real Scrum, you will have happier team members who have the goal of pleasing the customers by delivering products or services that the customer really wants.  

If you have a few minutes while you are at the conference, let’s chat. We will be at the booth named “Do You Scrum?”

Large Scale Scrum (LeSS)

Is your organization trying to be Agile @ Scale? Some of the scaling frameworks out there might be making your organization even more complex by introducing new roles while keeping the existing roles and bureaucracy in place. You might want to consider simplifying your organization instead. You might want to look into Large Scale Scrum, known as LeSS. With LeSS, you can reduce the complexity of your organization and move towards a simpler organization that is more agile. Come see us for more information.  

(Warning: it is not very safe if you are afraid of transforming your organization or changes in general :-) )Stop by at our booth to discuss.
