Scrum: Cultivating Empiricism
In this session, we will explore the importance of empiricism and how behavior can affect whether your Scrum implementation is mechanical or professional.
Scrum is based on empirical process control where we are guided by our experiences. Built into the events of the framework, a Scrum team frequently inspects, adapts and is transparent in order to optimize product development. What are some positive and negative ways that empiricism is affected by our behavior?
The introduction of Scrum values into the Scrum framework tells us that culture and behavior is a recurring problem that we must tackle in order to optimize empiricism.
