Scrum raises as many questions as it answers. Scrum teams become islands of productivity in oceans of corporate inertia. How can we apply the advantages of Scrum to the rest of the company?
So it was another revelation when I started to read about Lean Software Development and Lean Product Development. Lean not only explains why Scrum works, but also provides simple principles to maximize corporate effectiveness:
- Eliminate waste
- Amplify learning
- Decide as late as possible
- Deliver as fast as possible
- Empower the team
- Build integrity in
- See the whole
Today I look forward to discussing those principles with the Scrum Breakfast community.
The presentation (in German) Schlanke Software-Entwicklung: von der Idee bis zur Rendite ("Lean Software Developement: getting from the Idea to Profitablity") is now online.
