To SCRUM or not to SCRUM

Dia1

Bits & Chips magazine came aware of our SCRUM battle and published an article on this topic. The article, titled “to SCRUM or not to SCRUM, Game simulation provides insight” states that although SCRUM is adopted by many organizations, still 50-60% are new to SCRUM development. This implies many managers struggle with questions like; should we do scrum? What would be its impact?

The SCRUM battle is an ideal way to introduce the SCRUM way of working in an engaging way. The SCRUM battle is a simulation game in which 2-4 teams experience how to work in an Agile team. It has been designed to introduce SCRUM to stakeholders from e.g. the business, operational, management or Sales. But is also helps developers and testers to get a good feel about SCRUM.

In the article I refer to a video that I made. You can watch it here:
