Could Scrum Help You Achieve Your Goals?

Saturday, May 6th, 2006

Known as a hyper-productivity technique, Scrum was initially designed to manage software projects. It can be applied to other projects as well.

Its intended use is for management of software development projects, and it has been successfully used to “wrap” Extreme Programming and other development methodologies. However, it can theoretically be applied to any context where a group of people need to work together to achieve a common goal - such as setting up a small school, scientific research projects or planning a wedding.

I am thinking of starting off in a simple way for each module/project team members. Spend about 5 minutes to compose a scrum mail circulated amongst the team members with simple topics like -

  • Completed
  • In Progress
  • tomorrow’s plan
  • the week ahead

Getting Things Done, GTD, Mac, Personal Productivity, Time Management, Motivation
