During our presentation, we will answer the following questions:

  • What is Scrum, and how does it relate to agile and XP, for example?
  • What are the values behind Scrum?
  • When can I use Scrum and what results will it help me achieve?
  • What's the Scrum process? And the roles, meetings and artifacts?
  • How to start implementing Scrum.

While presenting, we will use real-life examples from both our own experience as the participants’ experiences.

We will constantly refer to the values that are behind agile and scrum and how the process and practices support these values.
