What is the sound of one Scrum Clapping?

As Reviews become Showcases & ScrumMasters become Iteration Managers, organisations all over Australia are adapting Scrum to suit their organisational needs. Scrum is seen as a grab bag of techniques to serve as a simple starting point or a way in which to manage and organise a small team.

But what if we looked at Scrum from a completely different angle; and saw it not just as a set of steps to follow, but rather as a series of problems to solve?

If you’ve struggled to deepen your Agile Adoption, get management buy-in, or genuine customer involvement, consider for a moment that the answer may lies not in the solutions you’re providing but rather in the questions you’re asking –and fundamentally how you and your organisation talk about Scrum.
