Sentinel: A Scrum Case Study
Hello and welcome to this Scrum Fundamentals course. My name is David Starr and I've been using and teaching Scrum since the early 2, 000's. I've most recently worked closely with Ken Schwaber throughout 2011 and 2012, as the Chief Software Craftsman at Scrum. org. We're going to start the discussion about Scrum a little differently than you may be expecting. To have a meaningful discussion about a topic, it often helps to understand the experience of others. The first module of this course is the very real story of a notoriously bad software project and how it finally found redemption. If you find similarities between the story you're about to hear and your own experiences, Scrum just might be a tool that will work for you. This module answers the question, why would I want to use Scrum? Well here's a peek ahead at the answer. Because we'll be able to ship.

The Scrum Framework, Part 2
Hello, this is David Starr, welcome back to the course. We're going to continue on with the Scrum Framework, Part II. Part I of the scrum framework covered the values, roles, and artifacts of scrum. In this second part of this module, we're going to cover the events of scrum because that's a much better word than meetings and all the rules that bind together the events, roles, and artifacts.

Scrum And: Complimentary Practices for Succeeding with Scrum, Part 1
Hello, this is David Starr and we're back for our final topic, our final segment of our Scrum Fundamentals Course. We're going to be talking about Scrum And, Scrum and other things that worked very well with Scrum. We'll find that Scrum actually needs other practices to get with it in order to be effective. Now, this is a two-part discussion. We've got Scrum And Part One and Part Two coming up in the next module. In this first module, however, we will be discussing the notion of Scrum But, obviously, the title of this segments being Scrum And, so we'll see how those two things work together. We will discuss how visualizing Scrum and its process that's been very effective for a lot of people. We'll see how some people have chosen to visualize the Scrum Framework. And then we'll take deeper looks at parts of the Scrum Framework, activities that we do, we'll see what are some complimentary practices that make those activities very, very effective. And to that end, we'll look at Sprint Planning. We'll visit the Daily Scrum. And then, as we move into Part Two, we will also discuss the Sprint review and retrospective and then we'll see what we really mean by backlog grooming. We'll look at the process that many teams use for grooming their product backlog. And finally, we'll look at some patterns that I have found over the course of my career with regard to what do teams do to actually ship their increments and their releases of software.

Scrum And: Complimentary Practices for Succeeding with Scrum, Part 2
Hello, this is David Starr. Welcome back for part two of this module, Scrum and where we explore Complementary Practices for Scrum and hyper performing Scrum teams. This is part two of this module. And in part two, we'll take a look at Sprint Reviews, we'll study some techniques for better Sprint Retrospectives, we'll see what we can do to make Backlog Grooming really, really productive, and finally, I'll share some patterns that I've seen in Scrum teams where they actually begin to deliver software. We'll take a look at how this iterative incremental development stuff affects our Delivery Patterns. Now you may remember from part one, we visited the notion of Scrum But where we may and you may see some more Scrum Buts in this segment of the module. We'd looked at some different ways to Visualize Scrum. We discussed Sprint Planning and Daily Scrum. We're going to pick up from our Daily Scrum discussion right here with Sprint Review. Here we go.
