#58 Adventures in Scrum: Experimenting with metrics and motivation at Totaljobs Group
Totaljobs Group adopted Scrum across its Technology function at the start of 2009, representing a huge process and culture shift across the company. Since then we’ve continually sought to evolve our Agile model, often employing an experimental or iterative approach to key aspects of delivery and quality management. Sometimes we succeed, sometimes we don’t.
This session aims to share our experiences, experiments and learnings in two key areas: Measurement (how are we doing? how do we know?) and Motivation (creating opportunity to innovate and influence). There will be a presentation and interactive discussion.
Melanie Rose is the Business Analyst Team Lead at Totaljobs Group (TJG). As part of TJG’s Technology management team, Melanie drives process improvement and people development across the IT delivery function as the company evolves its Agile model and extends this into Poland over the next few months. She contributed a chapter on ‘The iterative business analyst’ to the forthcoming book ‘Business Analysis: Leadership for change’, (Kogan Page, edited by James Archer and Penny Pullen) and is an enthusiastic member of a number of Agile/BA communities.
