Avoiding Scrummerfall

A session at Stir Trek: Darkness Edition

Friday 17th May, 2013

3:30pm to 4:30pm (EST)

Agile is where you want to be and Scrum was going to get there. Or so you thought. We know that Scrum is the most popular Agile framework, but many apply it as a thin veneer over traditional ways. Sprints become meaningless, retrospectives are a bore. In this session we'll walk through common challenges in adopting Scrum, how to recognize them and what you can do to get past each.
