ScrumBut Workshop

Scrum’s use in spreading in product companies and engineering organizations. These organizations hope that Scrum will :

*         Making them more productive

*         Providing more predictability

*         Increasing risk management capabilities

*         Increasing the value of products in the marketplace and systems in the organization

*         Increasing quality

*         Improving the morale and pleasure of the developers, product managers, customers and stakeholders


However, when they use Scrum, they run into ScrumBut’s. ScrumButs are reasons why they can’t take full advantage of Scrum to solve the problems and realize the benefits.

A ScrumBut has a particular syntax:

(ScrumBut) (Reason)(Workaround)

An example ScrumBut is (The Daily Scrum meetings are too much overhead) (because the team members don’t need to meet so often) (so we only have them once a week, unless we need them more often).

In this workshop, people who are accumulating ScrumButs will work with Ken Schwaber and other selected Scrum guru’s. They will identify their highest priority ScrumButs and learn how to systematically address and resolve them.  While doing so, the attendees will learn how to assess the impact of a ScrumBut on the organization and quantify its damage. Attendees will also learn how to turn ScrumButs into actionable user stories that can be resolved using Scrum.

Attendees are expected to bring some of their highest impact ScrumButs to the workshop. Several will be worked on, including identifying how they were identified by Scrum, measuring their impact, and creating plans and techniques for resolving them. War stories of what these ScrumButs have done to other organizations will be shared.

At the conclusion of the workshop, attendees will know how to identify, write-up, and resolve ScrumButs.
