Scrum has enormous potential, which has been proven in countless development. Scrum can bring out the strengths of teams and achieves performance that exceeds expectations of classic projects. Due to it’s strengths it is well comprehensible that Scrum is attractive in different industries. But the challenges of implementation and use – especially in highly regulated industries as the banking sector – are at least as big as the attractivity.
The heavy focus on the team does however have drawbacks. Scum tends to forget that there is a context for every single project. The relationship to the organisation, represented by the “unloved” management, is still unexplained, after all Scrum isn’t particularly interested in. Scum definitely needs to be completed in this discipline.
Scrum needs to be embedded to secure and design the link to the organisation in a productive way. This important frame, a solid govanance framework able to deal with different shapes of agility has been created by a team of Targit GmbH and milestone consultancy gmbh. Based on long lasting experience, the analysis of countless Scrum implementations and detailed know how we developed SCRUMFRAME.
SCRUMFRAME offers an outstanding framework for coordinating Scrum-driven developments within an organisation. Furthermore the model is capable of dealing with projects where singular parts/streams/work packages will be developed using the waterfall approach, while others will take an agile approach. SCRUMFRAME is excellent at dealing with such combinations.
The application of SCRUMFRAME yields diverse benefits for the employing business:
