Presentation: "SCRUM"

Track:   Agile Software Development

Time: Monday 13:00 - 14:00

Location: Nortvegia


Some have argued that Agile processes are not appropriate for large projects. Many of the success stories are just about small projects with exceptional people.

In this SCRUM session we will get a different story: a large project run using SCRUM a success and some less successful projects pretending to use SCRUM or agile - but omitting some of the basic principles - disasters.

Where is the difference? What should we expect of SCRUM? What are guarantees to make an 'agile' project fail? What increases our chances to succeed?

We will look at basic project dynamics and how SCRUM and agile make a can make a difference.
