I was asked earlier in the week the ultimate goal of my Scrum training. Someone wanted to know, did I expect my students to use Scrum? That has given me pause for thought. Scrum is an excellent tool in many situations, but not the only one. I’ve never worried if people use Scrum – what matters more is if you help your organization by delighting your customers/clients.
To that end, the goal of my course: open people’s eyes to what is possible, help them see opportunities/impediments, and awaken a spirit that won’t let go. All else is an implementation detail.
