Video – Introduction to Scrum

A colleague of mine, Michael James, just posted his Introduction to Scrum video on YouTube I think is the right length and depth for an overview – it’s not so short as to be trite (or worse, incorrect), but it’s not an exhaustive examination of Scrum either. This video is good prep for people who are planning to enter a CSM class and don’t want to go in cold. It is also good for stakeholders around the company who want an understanding of Scrum so that they can work better with their development teams.

I’d be very interested in hearing your views of this video.

The complete series is also available, providing most of the information you need to pass the Certified Scrum Master or Professional Scrum Master exams:

  1. Introduction to Scrum
  2. Backlog Refinement (Grooming) Meeting
  3. Sprint Planning Meeting
  4. Daily Scrum (standup) Meeting
  5. Sprint Review Meeting
  6. Sprint Retrospective Meeting

Here’s a lower-quality version of the first one:

    I enjoyed the video series. I had worked on a “Scrum Team” (intentionally in quotes) before, for an organization that was anything but agile. I also had the handicap of having a long and successful traditional project management career. The team got no agile training so some knew it (or thought they did) and others were catching up. Needless to say, there were issues. Your video series explains the principles and some techniques clearly and with humor. I feel much more knowledgeable about Scrum now. Thank you.
