While Scrum is most commonly associated with software development, the use of Scrum is becoming increasingly popular in non-software environments. Many of us have heard of Scrum being used for marketing, graphic design, and even support centers, but Scrum doesn't stop there.

In this session, we'll explore some of the more unusual places we've implemented Scrum, including chip design development, hardware product development, and even neuroscience research labs! We'll explore how we adapted Scrum to fit the unique needs and nuances of each different environment, the unforeseen hurdles and pitfalls we faced, and what we discovered along the way.

If you’re facing the challenge of implementing Scrum outside of software, we invite you to learn from our experiences as we share what worked, what didn’t, and why.
