In this talk I'd like to share my experiences of introducing Scrum at funda. Hopefully our learnings can help you when introducing the methodology at your workplace.
In 2012 product development (approx. 45 pax) at funda started doing Scrum. We bought post-its, we bought white-boards, we took more than the "1-per-trainee" agile card games from our agile training courses and we were good to go! Or not. Bugs messing up sprints, UX designers with never ending "design stories", developers that couldn't stop refactoring, "I'd say 3 points, because it's about 3 hours of work" and managers who feel "they're just doing whatever they want to do".
Introducing Scrum turned out not to be as easy as we hoped. However, we kept going, kept learning and kept getting better at it. I'll share some of our mistakes, learnings and tips for others to take with them while introducing Scrum at their workplace.
