Our guest is Ken Schwaber, Founder and President of Scrum Org. Ken is the co-author of Software in 30-Days. Ken talks about his book and tells why developing software fast increases value. Agile methods, including Scrum, focus on delivering software products quickly thus improving the return on value.  Agile methods consist of iterations, small groups, fast feedback, and continuous retrospectives.  The Standish Group has developed rules for Value-Based PM. Implementation of an agile process or methodology using a small project philosophy goes a long way toward adopting a Value-Based PM Environment. Scrum provides a good baseline for a Value-Based PM environment.  In this program we explore:

  • Three major takeaways from Software in 30 Days

  • 3 Most common Agile mistakes
  • Only do what is important [VBPM Rule#13]
