                                                                                      Scrum Moments of Truth: A Baker's Dozen  



Have you ever wondered if Scrum can be implemented piecemeal? Which, if any, are the essential aspects of Scrum? The days in which Scrum was considered “process-light” are long gone and a lot of experience in applying Scrum is now collected. In this presentation we will discuss 13 instances of what marketing calls ‘Moments of Truth’. Moments of Truth is defined as those touch points when customers come in direct contact with the company. In this case, when teams can make it or break it in using Scrum. Join us to discuss these and see if your organization has been missing out on some fun with Agile.
