“A Scrum Deep Dive using Patterns – James Coplien” Place: Rontgenlaan 27, Zoetermeer, the Netherlands
Why do some organizations succeed with Scrum – while many fail?
There are some core patterns that successful Scrum teams have — and you cannot read about them in the Scrum Guide or Agile Atlas. The Scrum patterns are your way to Kaizen (continuous improvement). We want you to be able to tell a story of your own Scrum team that goes like this — exemplary of ten of the most important patterns of successful Scrum teams:
In our Stable Team we have a Definition of Ready. It gives us Enabling Specifications for our Product Backlog Items before we enter a Sprint. During the Sprint we perform our tasks by Swarming while our ScrumMaster ensures Illegitimus non Interruptus. Most of our Sprint Goals are based on the Happiness Metric.
In this two-day course we'll lead you on a journey into Scrum Patterns, which grew out of the critically acclaimed Organizational Patterns of Coplien, Harrison, and Wachi-san. Contributors to these patterns include Jeff Sutherland, Kiro Harada-san, James Coplien, Mike Beedle, Gabrielle Benefield, and a litany of other household names in Scrum who have each given weeks of their time to mining the patterns that underly great Scrum practice. Then, you're in charge — we'll ask you to chart your own path, using the patterns, to improve your organization.
You'll learn what Scrum patterns are, how to write your own, and how to use the existing pattern languages of Scrum to chart a "project language" to take your Scrum to the next level. These Scrum patterns mine the insights of the founders and world experts in Scrum, who have been contributing to them for the past 7 years.
