Agile through ScrumPaul I. Pazderski
About the Topic
Business leaders always search for better, faster, and simpler ways to deliver their products and services to their customers. Software organizations are turning to Agile methods for speed, customer engagement, and streamlining. Scrum is one of the simplest Agile Methods, which is easy to understand and try on a pilot project. Any "project" can be performed using this interactive agile method called "Scrum". Work is done in small chunks called Sprints. In a Sprint, the team takes work from a prioritized list of "features". The features developed first are of highest value to the customer. Scrum is primarily composed of three roles, three activities, and three artifacts. This interactive lunch and learn presentation will overview Scrum and engage the participant in considering how it could be tried in his/her organization.
