Give Thanks for Scrum Day

Ken Schwaber and I had a spirited discussion answering questions from the audience at the Agile Boston conference on 25 November.

I started off the day with  "Practical Roadmap to Great Scrum: Systematically Achieving Hyperproductivity." Several people have asked for data on story process efficiency which typically is about 20%, i.e. if a story takes one ideal day to implement it takes five calendar days to deliver on average. When you raise your story process efficiency to over 50% you will double your velocity. Systematic Software Engineering in Denmark, a CMMI Maturity Level 5 company, has provided extensive data in this presentation which will be useful to anyone interested in high performing Scrum teams.

Would you look at that!

Seeing Jeff and Ken sitting together at the same table just brings a smile to my face.

The time I worked for the two of you at Individual, IDX and ADM, were some of the fastest learning curve's in my career.

Your Scrum methods and the Jade Box did a world's worth of help for me, taking me all over the globe since at Viridien, and now my company, Explosive Fitness.

I want to wish you both very happy holidays.
