Scrum and Continuous Improvement

Ken Schwaber | 11:45 – 01:00


Scrum is a framework that can be used for continuous improvement. For instance, product backlog is more than just list of requirements. How can it be used to create roadmaps, plan releases, and optimize value?

Another topic will be the steps beyond Scrum’s initial use that can be used to improve value and enterprise competitiveness. Ken will also discuss recent changes in Scrum, and his and Jeff Sutherland’s new book, “Software in Thirty Days.”


Ken Schwaber developed the Scrum process with Jeff Sutherland in the early 1990’s and has gone on to test and popularize its use. Ken was a signatory to the Agile Manifesto in 2001, and has founded the Agile Alliance and Scrum Alliance. Ken has been a software developer for over 30 years, from hacked to procedural to object, from bottle-washer to cook.
