On February 16, 2014, Steve Tendon was interviewed by Tom Cagley, the host of the Software Process Improvement Measurement Cast.
Listen to the interview here: SPaMCast #277.
Tom asked Steve the following questions:
Let’s talk a little bit about Scrum today. Everything is better with Scrum, right? (33:45)
Are there limitations then, or is Scrum the “Silver Bullet” we have all been waiting for? (34:05)
As managment becomes less dysfunctional, then we should pull back from Scrum; but what should we be replacing it with? (35:52)
Is that something you have seen often in software centric organizations? or is that something that makes sense, it probably happens, but you don’t run across it in the wild? (37:42)
When I hear the words “Unity of Purpose” I tend to think about Deming or at least some of the work that spins out of Deming. But I think “Unity of Purpose” is easier in smaller organizations where you can have a common approach. In larger organizations there are so many different threads, it is very difficult for senior managers to understand what that single vision, that unity of purpose would be - because there are so many competing purposes. Does that transmit itself throughout the organization? (39:58)
