Agile Scrum

Over the last couple of years, I’ve written quite a lot about Scrum. It’s certainly my agile methodology of choice. I love the fact it’s so easy to apply, straight over the top of whatever technical or engineering practices you already use.

Scum Certified Agile Master (SCAM) Training

I’ve just stumbled across this genius piece of work from Scott Ambler, who recently posted here on All About Agile about agile project management and the challenges of agile project initiation.

One of the readers of my blog (someone with the id ‘phani’) has kindly posted an example Product Backlog and Sprint Backlog on the allaboutagile Google Group. I’ve taken a look at them. They’re not exactly how we do it, but I think they are very nice examples. Note that the Product Backlog has Sprint numbers across the top, so

Scrumaholics Anonymous!

I read this blog post from Tobias Mayer that compares Scrum with Alchoholics Anonymous… It made me laugh out loud! 🙂 There are some interesting parallels, but I can’t imagine what possessed Tobias to think of this.
