Parallel Session: Using Scrum: Sprints not Marathons

B3: "Using Scrum: Sprints not Marathons"
Andrew Male, University of Bath

In the current economic crisis, pressure is increasing on organisations to rapidly deliver a return on investment. Agile frameworks make this possible by putting the emphasis on working products and responding to change.

What are Agile development and Scrum? How can the HE Web community use these frameworks to deliver value to our organisations? What questions do they raise for us and our relationships with other staff?

Learning Objectives:
Group exercises will allow people to experience some of the techniques used in Scrum, including Planning Poker and Retrospectives.
