Understanding Why Scrum Works (Webinar)

September 23, 2008 — Posted by Jim Trott

Listen to the webinar audio Understanding Why Scrum Works (audio of the webinar)

Scrum# is an extension to Scrum that was developed by Net Objectives to solve challenges that were being encountered by many teams adopting Scrum. Read about more about the issues which Scrum# was created to solve.

webinar on September 02, 2008 presented by Alan Shalloway discusses why Scrum works and how Lean's metaphor of Fast-Flexible-Flow can be used to modify standard Scrum practices as needed. Additionally, Scrum#'s enterprise view and Lean Management philosophy will be the basis for creating an Enterprise/Organization wide team to manage dependencies across teams without command and control.

This webinar covers:

  • Why Scrum works
  • How Lean-Thinking can identify root cause of problems
  • How to use Lean-Thinking to eliminate delays
  • Breaking down the silos between development and Quality Assurance
  • How to coordinate multiple development teams so that they work together - going beyond Scrum-of-Scrums

The webinar is available to registered users of the Net Objectives website for 30 days and to Net Objectives customers always. However, you can still download:

  • The audio track of the presentation as a podcast
  • A (lower resolution) iPod Video that you can watch on your iPod or in iTunes

Note: This webinar is close to an hour long, so the files are large.
