Ken Schwaber and Jeff Sutherland the co-Creators of Scrum

Scrum Inc. is pleased to join Scrum Alliance and Scrum.org in announcing a new website ScrumGuides.org that will be the new home of the Scrum Guide. 

From the Press Release:

Scrum Alliance, Scrum.org, and Scrum Inc. announce the release and joint endorsement of a new community website, ScrumGuides.org. The new website is the official source of “The Scrum Guide, The Definitive Guide to Scrum: The Rules of the Game.”

Dr. Jeff Sutherland and Ken Schwaber created Scrum and authored “The Scrum Guide” to ensure Scrum remains true to its core principles and values.

“The Scrum Guide is the canonical definition of Scrum. Ken and I have worked closely together for decades to keep it simple, clear, and, in the true spirit of Scrum, to include only what is absolutely necessary,” says Sutherland CEO of Scrum Inc. “Scrum is a powerful tool to radically increase productivity. Every implementation of Scrum is different, as teams and organizations apply it within their context, but the fundamental framework always remains the same. For Scrum Alliance, Scrum.org, and Scrum Inc. to come together to recognize the central place the Scrum Guide holds will provide clarity to the hundreds of thousands of Scrum practitioners across the planet.”

Jeff at EMC

Jeff at EMC

Last week, Jeff visited the storage giant EMC, a long time Scrum Inc. friend. He delivered the third iteration of his TedX Talk. The talk is a synopsis of the divergent experiences that helped Jeff create the first Scrum team at Easel in 1993 and is based on his new book, Scrum: The Art of Doing Twice the Work in Half the Time. The presentation was extremely well received. In fact, Jeff has been invited back to inspire more EMC teams soon.

You can download the EMC Slides and watch the original talk here.

Scrum the Book out in the UK

Scrum the Book out in the UK

The book hit the shelves in the UK this week. The North American version is out on September 30th. You can pre-order the book now and get a sneak-peak at the first chapter which tells the story of the FBI’s Sentinel project.

The FBI, in trying to move their computer systems that track case files into the modern era, spent a half-a-billion dollars. Unfortunately, not one line of code was ever deployed.  Using Scrum, the system was built in 20 months using 5 percent of the budget.

Click here to get the entire first chapter and learn how the Scrum framework enabled teams to build a massive systems critical software project five times faster and 95 percent cheaper.

Class teams building the car’s frame, suspension and carbon-fiber passenger compartment.

Scrum Inc. is hosting our second public eXtreme Manufacturing (XM) class in Seattle, Washington on August 21 and 22.  The class combines instruction in using Scrum for physical product design and R&D with hands-on experience actually building a working high-efficiency car over the course of two days.  Attendees at this second class will also receive a Certified Scrum Master credential.

We have been overwhelmed and humbled by the positive response to this new course.  The August class is nearly sold out, so we have already scheduled another class for October 16th, 2014.  We plan to hold XM CSMs once per quarter going forward.

For the Awesome!
