Presentation: Agile Mashups
Rachel Davies presents Agile Mashups which takes a look into the type of development that teams practice on the ground that are a mix and match of different processes such as XP, Scrum, DSDM, etc.. According to Rachel a new type of Agile development is emerging, one that trancends the defined processes:
• I work with Scrum teams who use XP practices
like Velocity, Test-Driven Development and
User Stories describe their Product Backlog.
• I work with XP teams who use Burndown
charts, Retrospectives and Daily Scrum format.
• I work with Lean teams who use a mix of the
• It seems a generic Agile mashups are emerging.
Teams create their own "Agile mashups" to match their organizations' context and culture. Rachel covers different practices teams typically tells us how to go about picking, choosing, and blending the practices that work for your particular context. Watch Agile Mashups if you are in the process of adopting and/or adapting agile processes and practices for your environment.
Project Manager on Agile projects alongwith ScrumMaster and Product Owner
The responsibilities of ScrumMaster tends to collide with responsibilities of Product Owner. The Product owner is responsible for ROI (Return on investment). The ScrumMaster is responsible for the process.
Many companies have the tendency to cut quality to meet the deadline. Scrum deliberately created two roles of Product Owner and ScrumMaster, so that quietly cutting quality will be difficult.
When organizations have a project manager, with ScrumMaster and Product Owner reporting to him / her, cutting quality quietly on the project becomes easy. It seems that this kind of structure is used by companies that do not wish to change, but want to call their projects Scrum.
To retain creditability and avoid going the SEI CMM route (companies getting certification for marketing and not for process improvement), we need to discourage this type of systems.

Digital whiteboard for iteration tracking?
But the problem that I'm facing, my development team is located offshore in India, whereas I'm in Frankfurt. Do you know a provider of a digital whiteboard? Means an easy way to stick notes and move them around and colorize these?
Thanks to all for any hint...
Re: Digital whiteboard for iteration tracking?
I remember that I read something in the scrum4you community.
Please have a look at the following URL

When you are from Frankfurt, German should be o.k. for you.
