Scrum Inc. at SXSW

Scrum Inc. at SXSW

If you're heading to SXSW, on Monday, March 16th, the Scrum Inc. Team is gathering a group of volunteers to build a car from scratch. No experience in Agile or Automotive Manufacturing needed.

The eXtreme Manufacturing Build Party will have self-organizing Scrum teams swarming to put a car together. Ever wondered how Scrum works in the physical realm? Here's your chance to find out!

This all-day session will teach you just how powerful self-organizing teams can be.

They're only letting us have a limited number of people work on the project, so sign up now! See you in Austin. #SXSW #XMfg #Scrum #Agile

Scrum Inc. Partners with Hubert Smits

Scrum Inc. Partners with Hubert Smits

During my fifteen years working as a Scrum trainer I’ve contributed to a few concepts on Scaled implementations that have been adopted by the larger Agile community. My first words of advice: bundle external experience with internal champions. Also, find the smartest people within the enterprise.

I learned this during one of my most successful and largest Agile Transformation. It was with the CISCO Voice Technology Group[1] (VTG). I was one of three people who had the opportunity to help VTG think about how to best transform their operations. This was an extremely complex change involving over 2,500 people, globally distributed teams that were working on 40 complex interfacing products.

I had the privilege to work with Kathleen Rilliet and Michael Kalt, both members of the project management office, and our success at Cisco was largely due to Kathleen and Michael’s incredible knowledge and experience.

Core concept

The core solution in handling CISCO’s context was to address the scale and complexity by actually scaling down. Start with a modest goal. We decided to move to a 3-month release with fewer people, features, and interacting products. The key challenge here was to first go smaller and faster – not an easy feat!

Live Online Courses will be Free

Live Online Courses will be Free

At Scrum Inc. we've been broadcasting live online courses every month for over two years. In fact this week's course on Retrospectives was our 29th. Until now, we've been charging $50/course. While we've experimented a few times with broadcasting the live event for free, it's never been our policy. However, starting with next month's webinar on Getting Done, we will offer the live broadcast for free forever.

If you want access to the recording and slides, those can be found on ScrumLab Prime. Prime is a $50/month offering but allows access to all Scrum Inc. content. This includes all previous and future online courses as well as a vast array of multi-media content that covers advanced patterns and topics.

Checkout ScrumLab Prime for free as well. Simply use the coupon: FREE MONTH.
