Strong agile momentum: 57% of all companies switched to agile

Now, a scientific study by FHNW and zhaw seconds that and found out that now 57% of the swiss IT companies changed to Scrum & Co.. According to that study, people and organizations feel more satisfied working in an agile environment than working with non-agile development processes.

According to the study, only 38% of the participants use the velocity chart method in their agile projects.

Booklet on Agile Requirements Engineering

bbv published a new booklet on Agile Requirements Engineering. The booklet is available for download as PDF.

Wir widmen uns in diesem Booklet dem Aspekt der Anforderungserhebung und wie diese in Scrum organisiert werden kann. Dabei gehen wir auch auf einige Best Practices aus dem klassischen Requirements Engineering ein und darauf, wie diese erfolgreich in einem agilen Projekt eingesetzt werden können, ohne dabei in den Sog schwergewichtiger Prozesse zu gelangen.

Speech about the challanges in product ownership

Recently I held an entry speech at Medconf, a conference about product development for medical devices. I spoke about my experiences and challanges in agile product management and product ownership with Scrum in a complex medtech project with multiple development teams:

In dieser Präsentation zeige ich Ihnen, wie wir in einem komplexen, international verteilten Projektumfeld mittels einer Scrum of Scrums-Projektorganisation den Scrum-Prozess skalierten. Wie organisiert man ein agiles Projekt, das an mehreren Standorten am gleichen Produkt entwickelt? Wo liegt die Essenz des agilen Projektmanagements? Wie sieht eine agile Projektplanung ganz konkret aus? Welche Lösungen haben sich bewährt und welche nicht? Ich zeige Ihnen auch auf, was unsere Erfolgsfaktoren für steigende Entwicklungsproduktivität waren und wie wichtig die Erstellung eines Release Plans für den Erfolg eines Projekts ist.
