A family scrum experiment gone wrong
As an engineer and CTO, I was fooled into believing that agile processes and being pragmatic are the key to success. And yet I watched as my own projects and others around me suffered from the same problems. During the last several years I discovered some tricks that seem to work.
Topics covered include:
– Where teams seem to struggle the most, and what to do about it
– The art of planning: across teams, and „breaking things down“ into smaller pieces
– How to inspire people and express vision without harming ownership and ambition
– The positive culture of failure, psychological safety, learning, and sharing
