3. Patterns, the defacto scrum standard

James Coplien on Scrum:

  • The history of scrum, patterns
  • Scrum is about responsibility, trust, self-management to improve efficiency
  • Why are you doing daily stand-ups? retros? daily scrum?
  • How do you treat bugs? When should decisions to be made?
  • Using patterns to wake up common-sense…
