Scrum: How to do twice as much in half the time | Jeff Sutherland | TEDxAix

  • Опубликовано: 7 июл 2014
  • This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Co-writer of the Agile Manifesto, Jeff Sutherland is one of the world's leading experts of organizational management. He'll explain how to be agile, not just in software development but in every business to disrupt the field.
    A former US Air Force "Top Gun," Jeff Sutherland is the co-creator of the SCRUM process. This methodology, developed in 1993 and formalized in 1995 with Ken Schwaber, has since been adopted by the vast majority of software development companies around the world.

    Jeff is a leading expert on how the framework has evolved to meet the needs of today's business. Realizing its benefits are not limited to software development, he has adapted this strategy to several other industries including: finance, healthcare and telecom. His processes are now widely used for managing challenging projects and hyperproductive development teams.

    As the CEO of Scrum Inc. and the Senior Advisor and Agile Coach to OpenView Venture Partners, Jeff shares best practices with organisations around the globe.
    About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

    One of the worst TEDx ever; one long brag with no useful content. It certainly doesn't even start to fulfil its title.

    Shocking how many commenters are ragging on the "uselessness" of this video like they were expecting "three steps to making scrum work everywhere all the time." The title is "by way of example" it's not a prescriptive how-to video. The whole point of this video (which I enjoyed and found useful) is that Scrum IS the "how." It's how you can turn around under-performing teams. It's how you can create a work environment that's productive, effective, and enjoyable. It's how you can deliver quality work faster. If you're expecting a 15-minute TED talk to provide you a magical spell to solve your problems, you're looking in the wrong place.

    How to do half as much in twice the time.

    Everything in this talk is exactly right, but it is missing some very important context. Just get this:
    - Make work results visible so people can actively improve themselves, and let them do it.
    - Use short cycles to train people to finish quality work on-time as a team. Otherwise you get one shot!
    - Use distributed controls, empowered teams, to adjust their part so the whole can learn
    - Distributed controls should be simple and easy to follow
    - Do these things and your expertise will grow, your confidence will grow, you'll learn every day, and love work!
    All of this is from Jeff Sutherland's incredible book by the same title as the talk. Agile is about running teams like they are filled with human beings. Life, Liberty, and the result is happiness.

    I still don't get why Gantt chart is bad. It does help show work and resource dependencies. He also mentioned that Gantt chart is no good because of the delay in real situation, but I don't get how SCRUM addresses it and get project work done on time better than Gantt chart.

    All starts with education! What he had described, about Netherlands schooling system is simply amazing! Other European countries such as Finland have been practicing self-education methodic - these countries are rated top education system in the world. It is time for US to start moving that direction and replace a dinosaurs education with modern age system.

    He didn’t land the plane, nor disclosed the methodology, principles or actual steps to be more effective in less time (!) The speaker introduced and build up with stories to then... walk away without really having disclosed anything valuable.
    Was this an attempt to have you buy his book, conference, consulting? I don’t know. All I know is that it was useless to watch this video.

    The plane landing analogy sums this up perfectly for those who don't understand - Rather than trying to just "Land a plane on a runway", you will end up in the trees and fail.
    Every few seconds, the pilot of the plane is adjusting itself to meet the final requirement as it draws closer to the target.
    The message: Improve in small increments, constantly adding value.With this, your end goal will become clearer as you understand it more with each increment. Adapt yourself to get to your goals rather than aiming high and not being able to meet it in one jump.

    It is about the Agile methodology used mostly in software development and some other fields, where work is split into weekly or monthly cycles instead of the traditional 'Waterfall' methodology where planning is done waaaay in advance and everything moves in sequence (the Gannt chart method). The title is slightly misleading though and I only caught on when he mentioned 'Agile'.

    Nurturing self-initiative is what parents are supporsed to do with their children. The same principle applies to adults, emplyers, teachers and anyone in the society. The problem is the majority average people believe leadership is leading with dominat attitude. Noone like that. Leaders have a lot to learn from humility.

    Wow, I listened to him for 15:50 minutes and I still don't know what he is talking about, or what his point is, or how to achieve it. Talk about the Biblical injunction "in the abundance of words there is much foolishness"!!! I have my own term for it "management psycho babble". And the saddest part is companies pay him millions of dollars for this "advice". SMH!

    He's saying you need to watch your behavior very closely and continually readjust, like a pilot landing a plane. Make a plan and follow it, if you fail write out your actions and figure out where you went wrong. Adjust for your mistake and try again.

    I like this lecture very much. Jeff explains the way he found his methodology. Perhaps he does not explain exactly the path he promises in the title, but in return he reveals his values, his career and his motivation. I would like to express my appreciation to Jeff for what he has achieved, not for what he has not achieved. His development of scrum is an enrichment of mankind.

    I get it! He said it once and showed it two or three times. Also, made a strong case for individual responsibility and gave multiple examples of how it performed when put into practice. In case your missed it... Make work visible. Become part of a self-directed team. If you are a manager, let go of managing and become a facilitator.

    When he stated plans are worthless planning is everything I took that to mean when you come up with your first plan it will inevitably fail because you do not know everything the first time around. The same as the pilot who got shot down in front of him. An individual should consistently reevaluate their goal and see where they and others have gone/went wrong that will change their output. That is why he gave that example at the end about kids learning from yesterday and using that to decide on what to do today. The other example about him going to a small company and the robot example is still unclear to me.

    This talk is very inspiring, the details about how to use scrum or Kanban can be found in thousands of videos in RU-clip. I'm so sorry that many people here just go so much for the methods and miss the agile mindset explained by someone that really deserves our respect. That's part of why many teams fail to implement scrum, they think that it's something that is supposed to be implemented step by step copy pasting a model instead of understanding their own company culture, project requirements and team so they can adapt the framework while evolving the culture. If values and principles weren't important there wouldn't be an agile manifesto but only a scrum methodology instead of a framework.

    This is one of those TEDx Talks that will not be readly appreciate by those that never experienced working under a rigid and untrusting management ethos. Jeff hit on the successful idea of self empowering small groups of people to solve complex problems. I have been in computing for over 25 years and had the great privilege to have been part of this movement, which over time will hopefully be taken for granted.
