September Meetup: "Zombies and the Spirit of Scrum"

Going through the motions of Zombie Scrum? Scrum has a spirit and a form. It’s form is easy to identify and is characterised by familiar artefacts and events like; sprints, sprint planning, retrospectives, and backlogs. Its spirit, which gives life to your agile practices is not as well known, resulting in a kind of “Zombie Scrum”. The spirit is characterised by the five Scrum values.

In this talk, we will have a fresh look at Scrum by revisiting the papers that inspired Scrum 25 years ago: “The New New Product Development Game” and “The Knowledge Creating Company”. Lets rediscover the enduring values that made those teams successful.
