Craig Larman on the Challenges of Scaling Scrum to Large Organizations

One of the things that was brought up in the key notes is the challenges around component teams and the very attractive option of organizing people around that grouping. What things did you bring out about component teams that really cause it to fail? Right, first of all let me define my terms because I am not sure all of the audience will be aware. So what we mean by component teams is groups of programmers that just specialize in one software subsystem.

For example, a really simple example, a group of programmers that just do the UI layer, a group of programmers that do some middle tier, a group of programmers that do database stuff, or in my world, the larger scale when you got millions and millions of lines of code and lots and lots of subsystems, programmers in this subsystem, programmers in this subsystem, and then when you want to do a customer feature it needs to be split up between all of these component teams. So what do we have here? 2. 3. Yes, absolutely. 4. Certified Scrum Professional.

For example, Agile product development teams are pushing business owners to prioritize the product backlog to deliver the highest value features in each iteration. However, business owners are not necessarily providing prioritization based on the organization's business strategy. Scrum is not Project Management. Scrum, and the way of thinking that it attempts to socialize in the world of work, has nothing to do with project management.

Scrum is not Project Management

Anyone who is laboring under the misapprehension that Scrum is some form of “Agile Project Management” is seriously missing the point. There may be such a thing as “Agile Project Management”. I don’t know, and don’t really care. It is of no interest to me. My concern is with changing the way people think and act, not with force-fitting old ways of thinking into a new paradigm that cannot accomodate it.

Damals teilweise noch als Experiment gedacht, haben uns die vielen positiven Rückmeldungen doch etwas überrascht. Auch hatten wir mit einem solchen Erfolg nicht unbedingt gerechnet: Insgesamt wurde es mehr als 2500 mal heruntergeladen, zudem haben wir noch eine ganze Menge an gedruckten Exemplaren verteilt. Wie damals bereits angekündigt wurde das Plakat seitdem stetig weiterentwickelt.

Irgendwann jedoch wurde es wieder Zeit, diese Gedanken festzuhalten und in ein neues Plakat zu transformieren.
