Scrum in 10 minutes

By on March 1, 2012

As many regular readers will know, I am a big fan of Agile development methodologies, and they work very well for iterative development.

I’m experimenting with Axosoft’s OnTime as a Scrum tool for running GAMESbrief. They have a marvellous 9 minute video which introduces you to the key concepts of Scrum. I recommend it highly. So highly that I almost insist that you watch it right now.

    Cool, I have been using OnTime for 6 years now :) Good luck with it. Try to reduce the massive amount of features by disabling everything in the beginning and enable only what you need.

    I once introduced Scrum to a team through the 59minutes Scrum simulation, worked marvelously :

    Good video. Have you had a look at RedCritter Tracker? It’s a ‘gamified’ project management system utilising Scrum methodology. We have been testing it for a few months now and I must say we quite like it. If you are interested, you can take a gander at our thoughts on the software here: http://www.orchard.co.uk/Blog/Guest-Blog—RedCritter-Tracker-Gamifying-the-Work-Place-By-Jeff-Coghlan-Matmi-MD-1685.aspx
