Strategic Scrum & Agility as a Choice

June 7, 2017

Many organizations face two key risks in their adoption of Scrum: 

  • TACTICAL SCRUM: A tactical implementation of Scrum that focuses just on the rituals and mechanics disconnecting Scrum Teams from company strategy 
  • DEATH BY MANDATE: Forced top-down implementation of Scrum as a Mandate, which often results in many un-intended consequences that impede Agility 

In this special ScrumPulse Double Header, Professional Scrum Trainer Ravi Verma breaks the conversation into two parts to managing risk.
