Scrum introduction

Freshness Warning
This article is over 8 years old. It's possible that the information you read below isn't current.

Here’s a great video from Axosoft introducing the concepts of Scrum. It’s a good itroduction for just about any audience, from developers to execs to project managers.

It’s important that all the concepts of scrum be implemented together, at least until you really understand it. Trying to pick and choose what to do leads to failure. Read We Tried Baseball and it Didn’t Work for a humorous look at modifying a methodology.

A good introduction, although it's a bit biased. Everything has pros and cons (even Scrum), maybe another (balanced) video can highlight what's good and bad in Scrum, and Agile Project Management in general (I can tell you there are as many people disliking agile as those loving it).

I have played around with the dashboard and can say from a small business-er point of view, this would really save some time and organize items a lot better. Xcel and shopping cart text fields don't really cut it when you are trying run a good business. I think the only thing that 'bugs' me about this software is the use of word 'Granular' - very tired of hearing that term being tossed around with software. that's it. love the plug you did for it.

Personally, I've been using scrum for the past six months and it's been a night and day change from the waterfall of previous experiences. Productivity is visible (nearly)every day, and the frequent communication between us and the product owner really helps.
