Getting to Grips with Scrum

Very interesting reading Tom Hume talk about Future Platforms early experiences grappling with Scrum. It's great reading - a far more tangible version of JoelOnSoftware.

In the early sprints, we had a lot of work which "just had to happen" - like many companies of our size, I suspect - and we consciously planned in more than our initial figures showed us we could realistically handle. Overcommitting in this regard didn't actually get more work done, even when the team visibly felt the additional pressure.

I watch with interest...
