The potential of Scrum and Business Agility to transform and solve complex, adaptive problems is massive, and most definitely not limited to the software engineering realm.

I’ve found enormous potential for Scrum to transform areas such as Human Resources, Marketing, Project Management Offices and Finance, to take advantage of the enhanced collaboration and team focus that the framework provides. In my experience, team reception to Scrum practices such as Sprint Retrospectives, Product Backlog refinement and Sprint planning has been nothing short of phenomenal.

In this session, I’ll share some of our learnings by discussing five key considerations that I’ve found to be critical when applying Scrum in a business team:

  1. Understanding why you’re using Scrum
  2. Focusing on the outcomes
  3. Being clear about what’s valuable
  4. Working with external vendor teams
  5. Visualising practice improvements
