Risks and Side Effects of Scrum

Yesterday evening, Alain Guilieri, Ralph Jocham & I had the privilege of speaking at the SwissICT Event 'Risks and Side Effects of Lean, Agile & Scrum.'

I talked about the challenges of changing an organization. Ralph focused on what can go wrong, in particular the important difference between an Certified ScrumMaster a Certified Scrum Practitioner (the latter in a meaningful certification) and the importance of top engineering practices. And Alain provided the Voice of the Customer: A department head in a Financial Institution who introduced Scrum two years ago and reported on his challenges, solutions and successes.

Some 60 people attended and many asked for the presentations. You can download them all here, Presentations from 'Risiken und Nebenwirkungen von Lean Agile und Scrum'.
