I'm also keen on insights anyone in the community can provide about how they went about adapting the Scrum framework to fit the context of such non-technology projects - what worked well, what didn't, which ceremonies and artifacts did they use and so on...
I second my colleague Kiron. I was thinking about the same topic and very interested to see the feedback of our fellow colleagues in this community based on real-life experience.
Probably this is one of the most frequently asked questions in relation to the implementation of Scrum and still baffles everyone. The old school of Scrum was very apprehensive about Scrum being used beyond software development.
Scrum seems to be quite linked to software development. It defines strict artifacts and it also says that if you don’t follow exactly the methodology than you don’t apply Scrum. Terminology is very software development oriented. So by definition it is quite difficult to apply Scrum on non software projects. You may adopt some principles and some logic but it will not be Scrum as it is defined.
I am very interested to know about that.
I should have said non-software development related, because obviously software is used in virtually all projects.
"Development" in Scrum refers to any complex work, not just software development. The Scrum Guide state:
"Scrum has been used to develop software, hardware, embedded software, networks of interacting function, autonomous vehicles, schools, government, marketing, managing the operation of organizations and almost everything we use in our daily lives, as individuals and societies."
It is examples and case studies within these that I am most interested in.
