2019 Scrum Day Keynote Presentation
Scrum.org CEO and Product Owner
The Future of Work:
The Impact of Scrum on How the World Works
Over the last 25 years, Scrum has changed not only how people approach their work, but also job titles and career paths. Scrum Master and Product Owner are now mainstay roles on recruitment websites and LinkedIn career profiles. Sprints, daily Scrum meetings, and Retrospectives are now part of the normal ‘what did you do at work today’ conversations. But most careers are still based on an industrial, pre-Agile outlook, with promotion and value connected to managing people and scarcity of knowledge. Bonuses are paid to individuals and reviews are determined by ‘work’ managers. How do we marry these two worlds? What is the future of work?
In this talk Dave West, CEO of Scrum.org, describes the long-term impact of Scrum and what future looking organizations are doing to create the right environment for Scrum and Agile practices to be a success.
