What we're about

Welcome to DFW Scrum!
Scrum is a process framework that focuses on delivering the highest business value to the customer as early as possible through short iterative development cycles that allow rapid and repeated inspection of the done work that the team produces. Scrum can of course be used on just about any project (if it involves people and it has to get done, you can use Scrum).
Our goal is to help you do better today than you were doing yesterday. The best way to do that is through the collective wisdom and experience of the crowd (sprinkled with some industry experts).
Scrum is very simple to understand, but very hard to implement as it takes your problems and throws them in your face each and every day. We consider ourselves an organic group that is designed to tackle the challenges and issues you face regardless of your role in Scrum.
We meet on the 3rd Tuesday of each month and would love to have you join us. We have hosted some of the industry leading experts such as  Ken Schwaber, Martin Fowler, Kent Beck, Ward Cunningham, Jez Humble, Lisa Crispin, Jim Highsmith, Dave Thomas, Ron Jeffries & Chet Hendrickson, Alistair Cockburn, Jeff Patton, Mary Poppendieck, Esther Derby and Mike Cohn since our inception January 13, 2009.

The Importance of Done - Glen Gordon

Link visible for attendees

“Is it done yet?” “Well, it’s done, but it’s not DONE done.” “How do we know it’s done?” You’ve probably heard these phrases before (or even uttered them). Done. There’s so much in that four letter word when it comes to Agile and Scrum. But often we don’t pay enough attention to the concept of Done, instead focusing on other things like Scrum’s events, artifacts and accountabilities. While those are certainly important, they’re not everything! In this session, we’ll dig into the concept of Done (and by extension, the Definition of Done) and you’ll gain a fresh perspective on how paying attention to Done can help us work more effectively within the empirical nature of Scrum, and live into the Scrum Values in a deeper way.
