Abstract/Description

“Few implementations of Scrum achieve the hyper productive state for which Scrum was designed (5-10 times normal performance). Those that do all implement variations on XP (eXtreme Programming)” - Jeff Sutherland

Want to go fast? Really fast? Like 5x-10x times faster? Find out how Scrum + XP delivers on this.

The session will start with a lively and interactive exercise which will make it obvious why you need to complement Scrum with eXtreme Programming (XP) and what happens if you don't. The exercise is easily reproducible and you will be able to facilitate it in your own environment to help sell your engineering teams and management on the advantages of taking on these practices.
