Scrum and CITI
Sounds a bit like S*x and the City, but no!
I was invited by Martin Wright of Cape Venture Partners to talk to members of the CITI My Mentor programme about Scrum. As we frequently experience, most of these IT entreprenuers knew nothing about Scrum...other than the game of rugby kind. After a short intro we ran Boris Gloger's Ball Points game to illustrate the value of empirical over defined process models.
The key learnings were (and this is always the case):
- Wow, we really improved the process a lot over the 5 iterations by applying our learning!
- Our estimates were quite close to actuals from the 3rd sprint on.
It's always exciting to see the cogs click as people - in this case entrepreneurs - start to visualise the potential for applying Scrum principles in their businesses.
Now they need to decide whether to do something about it or just go about business as usual.
