Three years ago, a paper was presented at the 2014 PNSQC titled, “How to Fail at Agile Without Really Trying”. It was based on achieving a successful implementation of Agile Scrum by leveraging “lessons learned” from failure. The company in question is now over four years into using the Scrum Methodology. Some things have changed significantly since the original launch and implementation. Some things have remained remarkably the same. This paper examines what Scrum looks like when the newness has worn off and the process matures. It also addresses what we’ve learned about when Scrum really works and when it really doesn’t.
