Implementing SCRUM in a hostile environment as a success

Yesterday I had had a talk at Scrumtisch München / JBoss User Group Munich in front of  a very interested audience, giving interesting and sound feedback.

Topic covered was:
From a point of view that sees Scrum as a negotiotion framework and a methodology embedded in a larger social, organizational and commercial context I want to discuss the core questions to make the implementation of Scrum and agile methods a success. Those points mainly deal with management and top management that should empower projects to live the values of agile project methodologies.

Learning from roles and responsibilities of expert police negotiation teams an easy checklist can be derived to proof wether mangagement supports a transition or does the opposit. This gives also a transparency on the true source of fire if you and your team(s) are burned – or as manager what you can really do to support.”
