Scrumming For Dollars

December 5, 2011 Leave a comment

Systems Engineering with SysML/UML” author Tim Weilkiens recently tweeted:

Tim’s right. Check it out yourself: Scrum Guide – 2011.

Before Tim’s tweet, I didn’t know that “software” wasn’t mentioned in the guide. Initially, I was surprised, but upon further reflection, the tactic makes sense. Scrum creators Ken Schwaber and Jeff Sutherland intentionally left it out because they want to maximize the market for their consulting and training services. Good for them.

As a byproduct of synthesizing this post, I hacked together a UML class diagram of the Scrum system and I wanted to share it. Whatcha think? A useful model? Errors, omissions? Does it look like Scrum can be applied to the development of non-software products?
