Can Scrum work in the public sector? What about all the documentation requirements? What will the internal auditors think? What will the external auditors think? What about those who don't like change? How do I prepare my team? What software should I be using? This section tells the story of how, and indeed, whether, Scrum can be implmented into a state government agency. As the facilitator of that possibility, that partially qualifies me as a scrum master.
Ongoing challenges of introducing Agile.
This quote was overheard by yours truly today in a status meeting. Something's wrong here. How come I've not been introduced to the product until you're done with it?
"Hidden scrum" within waterfall so as not to rock the boat (pardon the pun) can only take us so far. What if, by way of subterfuge, our system administrators (regarded by me as product owners) started to to incorporate User Stories to their Functional Overviews without even knowing it?
Oh the humanity!!!
One of my goals as Uncertified ScrumMaster is to make sure Agile gets adopted in the web world. One of these impediments is the "lack of documentation" compared to waterfall.
I've never been satisfied or comfortable with how the governmental organization I work for manages the implementation of IT projects. So when I started hearing about Scrum, I was very interested. I wanted change, but not sure what it looked like. Ironically, these are the types of projects that Scrum is best suited for.
