The Future of Scrum
In the past two decades, Scrum has become the standard for agile development, with more than 90 percent of teams today using Scrum to deliver working software. But, as Scrum starts into its third decade, it’s not the fresh-faced process framework that came into the world in the summer of 1995. In an industry that survives on the bleeding edge of trends will there continue to be a role for Scrum, or will its events, artifacts and roles be consumed by other process frameworks? What really is the future of Scrum? Dave West reviews the past, present, and future of Scrum, using real data from more than 200K open assessments and 50K professional assessments to describe the challenges and future of Scrum. Actionable takeaways include adding the development infrastructure for continuous delivery, defining the systems engineering to manage the operational requirements from the project’s start, creating architectures to simplify the challenges of large-scale development, and providing tools to manage the development and programs.
