Smooth Scrum: Lessons from the Theatre

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The last few decades of the American theater have seen a rapid growth in the number of ‘devising ensembles’—playwrights, actors, directors, and designers working together in collaborative groups to develop plays. It's agile development for the American stage.
Instead of beginning with a script—which is really nothing more than a fixed, detailed set of requirements that have to be met in design and development—theater artists are working collaboratively to transform a few rough (user) stories into a fully fleshed-out experience through the theatrical equivalent of sprints… with tremendous, ground-breaking results.
Any number of lessons from the world of devised theater can teach us a great deal about how to make scrum projects more creative, satisfying, successful, and smooth than their traditional waterfall counterparts. If your scrum practice needs a creative boost, this session might be the answer.
