The above points are from the practitioners. As a coach of scrum methodology, I have this case to share. There was one participant, who was very tired at the beginning of the SCRUM workshop. This participant looked tired and from the looks it was clear that this person did not have proper sleep the previous day. At the end of the workshop this person was full of enthusiasm and energy. SCRUM a great energy booster!
There was another person, who was using the word ‘BUT’ very frequently and was always on the problem side. After SCRUMMing he got transformed into a possibility thinker. He was talking only of the positives and the benefits.
Another manager had this challenge of poor knowledge sharing within the team. The experts did not share their knowledge with the new comers. At the end of the SCRUM workshop he had the solution to this problem.
As a SCRUM coach, after every workshop, I am wondering why people are adopting PDCA approach for software development project, when a wonderful framework like SCRUM is available.
Any organization which is serious about creating a better workplace, should adopt SCRUM as a way of doing work and in turn SCRUM can transform the organization.
