The practices really don’t matter and there aren’t really equivalents outside of software
We are obsessed with the how in Agile (the implementation), Lean has always been about principles
We have crossed the chasm of Agile at team level but not at scale – or have we? Nail it before you scale it!
Ceremonies mean people turn up and go through the motions (The Scrum Guide says events), use workflow instead of process (which means I do work and send it in for approval), work item or task instead of user story (Scrum calls them backlog items)
The common denominator between software and the rest of the organisation is the principles
If you don’t think differently, doing differently won’t matter
Scrum.org was created to push the focus of Scrum back to the delivery of software (rather than the world of work and LEGO) and to decouple the assessment from the classes
Scrum.org assessments include PSM I (I understand Scrum), PSM II (I practice Scrum) and PSM III (I am a coach / mentor around Scrum) to validate your learning as you grow into the role of a Scrum Master
Over a million people a day are doing a Daily Scrum!
State of Scrum – after 21 years the world is full of Scrum and software is being developed better, but the profession has not improved in the way we had wanted it to (we are not driving to value fast enough and we are not engaging the business correctly)
Software is the business now, Scrum cares about product delivery
