-A project management process - Embraces iterative and incremental practices -Concentrates on what is important: Managing a project or writing software that produces business value -Traditional Approach: -Requirements Gathering, Analysis, Design, Code, Test, Deploy - Each stage is completed before moving on - Artifact Driven ScrumWaterfall Approach Scrum vs. Waterfall Approach
-Designed to increase productivity and reduce the time it takes to benefit from a software/product development. -- Mature and scalable --Flexible -80% of a product’s value comes from 20% of its features What Is Scrum?
Version 1: 20% features Version 2: 20% + 20% = 40% features Incremental delivery allows the business to realize benefits much earlier in the cycle. Work on small pieces at a time = Iterative What Is Scrum?
Scrum Asks…Fundamental Project Management Issue What have you done during the last 24 hours? This is progress, it’s work completed to date. What do you plan to do in the next 24 hours? This is forward planning, it is work you are about to do. What is stopping you from getting on with the work of the next 24 hours? These are your obstructions or immediate risks, it might be things you need in order to work. Understanding Scrum
Product Owner 2. Scrum Master – Represents management to the project -Responsible for enacting Scrum values and practices 3. Project Team -5-10 members -Cross functional Scrum’s 3 Roles
-Scrum records requirements in a Product Backlog -Product owner prioritizes requirements (Items that add immediate business value are on top) -The Project Team - do the actual work -Make Sprint Backlog -GOAL: -After 30 days, should have a “potentially shippable product increment” SCRUM-The Process
-Every 30 days = Provide something of value to the business *Positives: If they like what they see after 30 days, they can re-prioritize the product backlog so they are ALWAYS producing goods that will be used Remember: 80% value comes form 20% of its features Scrum-Goals
-24 Hour Cycle Meetings -Have to stand -Time boxed – 15 minutes -Scrum Master & Project Team are only allowed to speak -If you’re late, you pay $ Questions Asked: What did you do yesterday? What will you do today? What obstacles are in your way? Daily scrum meeting
“Pigs” = Committed “Chickens” = Involved A chicken and a pig where chatting about setting about a business together. The pig asked the chicken: "What kind of business would we set up?" The chicken thought for a moment and said "How about a restaurant?" The pig liked the idea but asked "What would we serve?" The chicken responded "How about ham’n’eggs?" At which point the pig refused to take the business venture any further. The chicken was confused and asked "Why?" The pig responded "Well, you would only be involved, whereas I would be committed." Who Is Committed To Your Project?
Profit & Loss Using Scrum -Recognize Profit Earlier
-Scrum lets us move our projects from "top right” "bottom left". -Accepting that 80% of a product’s value comes from 20% of its features means you can move from complicated simple.
21 Energy Software Case Study - Develops a software product for oil and energy companies -Aiming to create new versions aka new “projects” -Development of the whole project is called a new “program” -Distributed between Norway and Malaysia (main activities in Europe, offices in Asia) 21
22 Energy Software -Experienced in carrying out distributed projects (using agile methods is new to them) -New product versions - twice a year -6 old versions are maintained -Started 18 employees - Now 190 employees 22
23 Energy Software Knowledge -Two major groups 1. The Service Organization (distributed all over the World) 2. Product Development Organization (distributed in Norway and Malaysia) -Followed traditional waterfall model -Needed better quality and more agility 23
24 Energy Software Scrum 3 Month Trial -Challenges- -Daily scrum meetings via telephone conferencing & Web cameras (connection not strong enough for video conferencing) -Only 2 hour common working time window -Silence caused my distance -Misunderstanding requirements 24
25 Energy Software Scrum 3 Month Trial -Positives- - Improved communication (more structured & frequent) - Improved Trust - Increase in motivation (receive quick clarification & all share equal value on team) - Improved quality - Collaboration 25
26 Energy Software Scrum 3 Month Trial -Lessons Learned- -Arrange proper SCRUM training - Travel (Face To Face Visits are important) - Encourage frequent communication - Provide a set of communication tools - Arrange overlapping working time 26
-The ethos of simplicity and the art of the possible “Don’t procrastinate, do something, no matter how small…” -Ken Schwaber – Scrum’s co-founder Again- What Is Scrum?

Exactly the same as the waterfall approach Designed to increase productivity and reduce the time it takes to realize value Solely to document records of Product Backlogs and Sprint Backlogs There is not one, it is all about discussing your daily activities with your coworkers Basically, What Is The Point Of Scrum?
