Project Methodologies and Us

Monday, May 16, 2005  

We've been using Scrum for a few months now and it works great for software delivery. We've had mixed results with its use for systems projects. I'm not entirely sure if it's the methodology or the personnel, though I'm trying to get a handle on that. Is Scrum too vague for the people I have? Are the participants behind on their skillsets? Why is it that developers can take off and work on implementing requirements while the systems people struggle to find time to work on their projects? I'm not entirely certain. Hmm.

is the scrum master not blocking impediments? outside interferances? i don't see how people on a scrum team could 'not have time to work on their projects' because the only thing they should be doing at all (except lunch and breaks) is working on their sprint. Maybe the scrum master isn't keeping outside forces away.
