Everyone take a sigh and a breather. Sometimes I think you need it. I do.
A few years ago, when I was still starting out using Scrum, I got this idea that Scrum could be used outside of the IT world. And even the “business” world.
So I posted this. And it has generated a lot of comments and thoughts over the years. People have even organized weddings using this technique.
I tried to implement it at home. So have others.
Over the years, we have been able to do this with some sort of success.
Is it totally Scrum?
Can I still talk about it?
Sure. And I hope even one of you walks away with an idea or two about how (or how not) to implement this at home.
Go out an buy yourself a white board, some markers, and some index cards. If you want to go really gung-ho, get those large wall-sized sticky-note-pads.
Start your Product Backlog.
Could be like the cartoon… but I am sure there are other things that need to get done.
Please send comments, questions, criticisms, ideas, or whatever here.
You can also enter The Scrum Community to discuss this entry and other Scrum topics. Thank you!
