Summary Description

The conventional way of doing product development is broken. The so-called "Waterfall Method," which breaks a large project down into step-by-step chunks and schedules them on a Gantt chart, doesn't work. Almost without fail, “waterfall method” projects fall behind schedule, go over budget and run the risk of generating products nobody wants or will pay for when completed.

That’s why you need BIG IDEAS FROM SCRUM, based on the book SCRUM: The Art of Doing Twice the Work in Half the Time by Jeff Sutherland.

SCRUM was developed in 1993 by Sutherland and Ken Schwaber as a new and improved way to do projects. It is designed to be evolutionary and adaptive rather than top-down and prescriptive. SCRUM was initially used with great success in the software industry but has now been used successfully in almost every industry across the board.

Scrum is a radical change from the prescriptive, top-down project management methodologies of the past, Scrum, instead, is akin to evolutionary, adaptive, and self-correcting systems. Sutherland has used Scrum to build everything from affordable 100-miles-per-gallon cars to bringing the FBI’s database systems into the twenty-first century.

Today, it’s time for SCRUM to work its magic in your business.
