Daniel Humberg on Scrum Reality Check – Learnings and Pitfalls from adopting Agile at SAP

On June 30th 2021, we were privileged to have Daniel Humberg speak to us on Scrum Reality Check – Learnings and Pitfalls from adopting Agile at SAP. Daniel is a Development Manager at Europe’s biggest software company SAP SE. where he works for The Tools Team. He was among the early adopters of Scrum at SAP in 2006 and has followed agile principles ever since.

Abstract: Scrum has become the de-facto standard working model for software development. From start-ups to global enterprises, from machine learning projects to web shops – agile principles are all around. While the key agile practices are easy to understand and quick to learn, it is not easy at all to do Scrum “the right way”. Furthermore, Scrum is quite flexible and can be adjusted to a team’s need (inspect and adapt). However, this also means that there are many things that can go wrong when adopting and adapting this methodology. In the talk, I will share learnings and observations from more than 10 years of using agile development methodologies in various roles. This is not a theoretical session but more likely a list of “15 mistakes you should avoid when using Scrum in software development projects”.
