I got some requests to discus the effectiveness of SCRUM and its impact on the time to market. Triggered by these questions I wrote an article which is published on our own company blog. In it I state that if you want to reduce the time-to-market with SCRUM, the organisation should be ready to deploy the code that the development teams deliver. I give some examples of situations I have encountered, and conclude that the time-to-Market does not depend on how well the development teams have implemented their Agile, but on the weakest link in the whole development chain, including business and operations.
I plan to translate this column, say yes if you want me to (please do comment) . But currently it’s available in dutch only (sorry): Scrum time-to-market, hoe zit dat nou eigenlijk?
