Boris Gloger and Scrum 3.0: Is the Future of Scrum Really No Backlogs or Standups??

Boris Gloger says it’s time to reimagine Scrum. Or rather to take Scrum back to its roots, before Scrum 1.0, whose original picture, Boris contends, is wrong. Scrum originated in “The New New Product Development Game” by Hirotaka Takeuchi and Ikujiro Nonaka, and Boris revisits it to point out the ways that Scrum and current Agile practices need an overhaul. Here’s a taste of some of Boris’ thoughts on Scrum 3.0:

  • The team interacts directly with the customer or end-user and write user stories, not the Product Owner.
  • If, in Lean thinking, every type of inventory is waste, then the Product Backlog is also waste.
  • Sprints can begin as soon as one user story or task is ready for the team to consume.
  • Daily Scrum need to be rethought too, rather than daily, every 90 minutes.
  • Many more (very short) demos, perhaps every 90 minutes…

Boris also shares some experiences using Scrum 3.0 at a client.

(There’s also a lot of dishes clanging in the background–sorry! But people gotta eat… :))
