Scrum has and is still significantly changing the world of work. What started originally with a practical survival strategy for software development has emerged into a complete new way of structuring work, teams and complete organizations. Despite the power of Scrum, there are also drawbacks and risks. In this keynote presentation Rini van Solingen will share his experiences in Agile transformations and Scrum implementations from the past decade. He will summarize his learnings into a list of 9 good’s, bad’s and ugly’s, and illustrate these with real-life anecdotes and examples. Please check out the handouts here.
