Getting to Done: The Power of Scrum.

View Webinar

One of the key principles in the Agile Manifesto is to have working software at the end of every sprint. Yet, only 20% of teams that call themselves 'agile' actually do this. That is a lot of bad agile. It doesn't have to be that way.

During this free, AgileLIVE webinar Dr. Jeff Sutherland, the co-creator of Scrum and author of "Scrum: The Art of Doing Twice the Work in Half the Time," shares proven and often quite simple ways to move teams from mediocre to great. You'll learn how to quickly identify the reasons why teams aren't getting to done, so you can eliminate them one by one.

Dr. Jeff Sutherland, CEO of Scrum Inc., and Lowell Lindstrom, vice president, services at VersionOne will discuss:

  • Defining what 'Done' means
  • How to systematically address common impediments to delivering working software
  • Real-world case studies of successful implementations
