People at Firms

Community of People at Firms Using Scrum

 

 

This page lists people at the firms (companies, organizations, corporations) that are using Scrum in some way. It is self-organized.

 

For a more complete list of firms (not people), see: Firms Using Scrum

 

Notes:

  • People listing here often want to hear from similar people and/or similar firms. Definition of similar varies widely.
  • The contact (eg, for discussion, research, etc) need not be someone who is an employee of the firm. Just whoever wishes to volunteer to be a contact.
  • Research. From time to time we are contacted about doing research about Scrum/Agile. Usually from a graduate student. Would you be willing to at least be contacted about this?
  • Please do /not/ feel compelled to reveal private information. This is a public wiki. We cannot say what might befall if you reveal your contact information here. Just listing your name, firm name and city is a big improvement over where the community is now. Some advise that you describe your email address in non-standard format, to foil spammers.

 

To yourself add to this list, please add your name and whatever other info at the bottom.

Interests: Scrum, RIA, Flex, Java, .NET

Comments about your Scrum Implementation: 1 CSM. Currently 6 projects using Scrum with a PO per project. We work in typical 4 wk sprints with the occasional 2 wk release sprint thrown in. We adapted Scrum a bit by allowing for releases during a Sprint such as patches, but we account for these during planning and they are subject to a full regression cycle by the Team. This allowed for us to react in a more timely fashion since we are dependent on Form updates by the IRS and these don't always fall on 4wk boundaries. We also have a highly distributed team and use WebEx now exclusively for our Daily Scrum's instead of a normal stand-up session. The biggest challenge we have is creating more granular and tightly written PBIs - this is an area I've been working with the PO's on for some time.

Comments about your Scrum implementation: Working with several cross-functional Scrum teams of 5-15 in size, delivering software products and tech operations projects. Have been following agile practices for more than 5 years. Currently, I am coaching teams to scale Scrum in enterprise environment where we have around 40 teams and growing. Most of the teams are at several locations, and they have x-dependencies with teams and team members across several time zones. I am focused on getting some coherent scrum practices that quickly shine the light on the need to apply unified measures for "Done" for teams to stand up their functional and non-functional deliverables to. I also have the Agile adoption management team using Scrum framework to support Scrum adoption, walking the talk
