SSUG the Swiss Smalltalk User Group in collaboration with CHOOSE is glad to invite you to the next half-day tutorial given by J. Pelrine (MetaProg GmbH):
"SCRUM: A Methodology to Keep the Team Going" on tuesday, October 14th 2003 from 14h to 18h at the IAM Room 001. http://www.iam.unibe.ch/~ssug/Events/20031014.html
Scrum, one of the agile processes, has been used to develop systems and products since 1995 on thousands of projects in hundreds of organizations. Scrum implements in several days and delivers increments of functionality within thirty days. Scrum wraps existing engineering practices. Because Scrum is a development management process, it has also been used for such projects as marketing, research, and hardware product development.
In this talk, we'll discuss how Scrum and all agile processes work, the theory behind them and their underlying practices of inspection and adaptation. Then we'll look at Scrum's detailed practices of iterations, increments of code, emergence of requirements and design, and self-organization of teams. Through these practices, Scrum introduces a heartbeat of regular productivity to an organization that foments customer and engineering collaboration. If XP is wrapped by Scrum, XP's engineering practices ensure the quality of this code and stability of the emerging product, while Scrum provides the organizational framework which allows development to flourish.
