There is such a technique — scrum. Scrum is used by many companies. Scrum is used to make films, write programs, and even build houses. You can live by Scrum. And make repairs.
Scrum is a religion. As in any religion, Scrum has its own spirits, deities and rituals.
Scrum rituals include bonfire gatherings where each hunter tells what he has done and what he plans to do. And he can tell the rest of the tribe how anyone can help.
Scrum has three legs like a three chair. This chair is a pure practice, which in the old days was called “Empiricism”. And these legs:
1.transparency — everyone knows everything about everyone,
2.checking — everything can be found out by conducting an experiment,
3.adaptation — adapt to reality or die.
Empiricism is when you poke a stick into the world and draw conclusions. As a real scientist-pathfinder, discoverer of the secrets of the universe.
The principles of the Scrum religion are the commandments that allow you to get closer to God. Become like his image, so to speak, as in the scriptures.
The principles are simple:
Monitor and check
Tell others how to eat
Everyone organizes themselves. There are no “m * daks”, there is a right to make a mistake, but you won’t hide it under a cover, but you will solve the issue
Help your neighbor
Priorities come from values
Time blocks allow you to organize the process
Start and do and act according to the situation
What rituals do the followers of this religion have, you ask? And does the tribe have a leader?
Younger spirits and lesser gods are business owners, founders.
The leader is the owner of the business — the person deciding what is important for the business. His assistants are the senior in spirituality — the Scrum master and the senior in what to do and where to put — the product owner.
And a bunch of people “tribal people” — the team that makes the product. So we have the owners and the guys who are doing the business. It looks like building pyramids.
Above is Brahman, Vishnu and Shiva, below is Krishna as the avatar of Vishnu and the true origin of the trinity of the main gods. Below is the master (slave owner in English), the owner and a bunch of guys who do the job.
It is not for nothing that the master and slave were recently renamed in the United States when it comes to computers.
It all sounds very sad so far, doesn’t it?
But no, it’s a lot of fun, but here are some nice things that all followers of religion get from Scrum:
Guys do something useful for clients faster
Top quality and performance
Cheaper is all for business
It’s easier to change everything on the fly when something changes
Everyone is in high spirits
Clients are delighted to get a gorgeous result
Some overwhelming tasks are solved once or twice
What helps in this? Sacred objects and rituals:
a list of what to do that the owner sorts,
A short-distance run is when the guys decide what they will do this week or two and cut the top results for this goal to the last.
Retro — when everyone collectively whines in a general therapy and then assigns each other to solve the problems they “have” to improve the process
We follow the principles and get excellent results.
Our scrum, which is in our heads
Let your name shine
May your will come on earth as in our products
Give us daily goals for the day
And forgive us our bugs, our mistakes
But spare us the crafty deadline
Forever and ever amen)
Hari scrum, hari hari,
Hari scrum large scale, hari, hari
So join our religion and you may become happy.
