Organizing scrum for a marketing team
I'm struggling to set up scrum in the most efficient way on a marketing team for a non-profit organization. I've been looking on YouTube for examples of team set-up and the boards they use, but I'm still confused. I jut wanted to ask if anyone here with experience in this area might be willing to chat with me; I have so many questions!!!
Hi @Delaine, you can find some articles and podcasts on the topic here: https://www.scrum.org/resources/blog/scrum-marketing and https://www.scrum.org/resources?search=marketing&field_resource_tags_target_id=All&type=115

Don't, would be my advice. Aim to find the most effective way of implementing Scrum. You don't want to market the wrong thing more efficiently.
The key to effectiveness is empirical observation acted upon early and often by a self-managing team. The team will inspect and adapt as closely as possible to the time and place of their work being carried out. This requires at least one Done finished Product Increment, of immediately usable quality, to be produced each Sprint and which is then empirically assessed.
In the case of your "marketing team", what would that increment be, and how would the team know it was Done? Do they have all the cross-functional skills needed to assure an increment's quality? How would they use such increments to establish and maintain empirical process control in their situation?
