Jonathan Hall — Scrum Isn't Enough

When Scrum was formulated, it was seen as a “wrapper” for more technical agile practices, such as Extreme Programming. A conscious choice was made to focus on the relationship between software developers and management. It was assumed that Scrum would be used to promote more technical developer practices, which Scrum leaves unaddressed. DevOps not only works hand-in-glove with Scrum to fill in these missing gaps, it is more and more seen as an essential tool for Agile success.

This episode is a replay of my Scrum Day Europe 2021 presentation, Scrum Isn't Enough: Why DevOps is essential for Agile success.
