Last spring, I attended a Swisscom internal gathering of project leaders to present Scrum. There, I was stunned by the approach described in one the keynotes: a project case study on how they conceived, designed and launched Vivo Casa, their new Digital TV offering. When I heard this talk, I knew two things: 1) agility is finding it's way into corporate thinking, and 2) I had to convince this speaker to come tell us about this project at a Scrum Breakfast.
Urs Geiser leads a Swisscom team of Experience Designers in the Private Customer segment. 'The dream of every large organization is get a big project done in a short period of time.' Swisscom tried a new approach for the development of Vivo Casa and was largely successful. The formal project management process took a back seat to the composition of the teams, freedom in designing the experience and the enthousiasm of the team members. Urs will tell us about the project and the success factors that made it possible.
