Five keys...

I’m for the moment working on a serie of posts. Theme will be: “Five keys to succeed in your Agile/Scrum projects”.

The idea is to suggest five principles which, if implemented, will greatly increase your chances of success on a project using Scrum or methods Agile. Those posts will be based on various sources (training, coaching, feedback, lessons learned) . You can also apply these principles on a waterfall project using Prince2 or PMI.

Articles will cover Scrum principles, Agile principles but also other things like coaching principles or NLP concepts.

Scrum Video: Scrum works in the real world

[EDIT: Link has changed, please use this one: https://vimeo.com/126345734]

Here it is !

A 5 minute video which is a feedback on Scrum. The idea was to make a fun team activity (the creation of the video) while promoting a methodology (Scrum) that we find effective. We also wanted to link to an existing project and not just a video explaining the concept.

This movie was realized during a project using the scrum methodology. This was a great experience during 6 months: an experience sharing, exchange, a little bit stress but lots of good humor and with finally 2 Web Portals.
