Event Details

Scrum Turns 21, Are We Done Yet!

Abstract: 90% of Agile teams are using Scrum. With over ½ a million people trained and certified. Scrum has become, for many the de-facto standard in Agile team organization. But what is next for Scrum? Will Scrum just become the ‘way you build software’ rather than something special or unique? In this talk we discuss the success and future of Scrum and what needs to happen to Scrum to continue its relevance. We describe how measurement, scaling and DevOps need to be weaved into Scrum to not only ensure its relevance, but also help the profession of software development improve.
