Multiple Scrum Teams Across the Enterprise
As organizations move to an agile model across the enterprise many
things have to change. A couple of examples of such changes might
be the PMO and Architecture groups incorporating rolling wave planning
and the introduction of the role of a Scrum Master to the HR team.
At this months meeting we'll learn first hand of some of the challenges
and rewards that Cerner has encountered in its evolution.
In the past 4 years, Cerner's development culture has transformed with
the adoption of Agile practices. We will go over our experiences of how
Scrum Masters and Technical Project Managers organizationally fit in as
well as the pros and cons of having multiple scrum teams and how teams
determine who will be a scrum master.
We would like to encourage participants to come prepared with questions,
as we would like to guide the presentation to your interests.
About the Speakers:
Shahzad Zafar and Rachelle Wright are both Technical Project Managers at
Cerner Corporation and are Agile Champions. They facilitate Cerner’s
Agile Boot Camp courses and have been leading agile web development
teams since 2009.
