All HICSS papers are published in the IEEE Digital Library and are FREE to download, so accepted papers are accessible to everyone for the rest of time. No other conference gives you the same distribution of your ideas. Plus it is held Kauai in January. Write, publish, vacation!

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.

Scrum at Scale: Changing the Conversation

Scrum at Scale: Changing the Conversation

Part of the key to Scrum's success is that it allows for context-driven solutions and processes – which is why no two Scrum implementations are identical. So why does the conversation about scaling Scrum focus on finding a proscriptive, one-size fits all solution? The conversation should instead be about how to scale the underlying principles of the Scrum framework that have enabled it to be so adaptable.

The Scrum at Scale framework is our first move in that direction. It is a minimal extension of the core Scrum framework that keeps the modular structure at the core of the Scrum framework, and allows you to scale a Scrum implementation tailored to the unique needs of your company.
