First session at the Scrum Gathering in Munich was a keynote by Jeff Sutherland called ‘A Practical Roadmap to Great Scrum: A Systematic Guide to Hyperproductivity’. Jeff is really enthusiastic about the performance gains he got with the introduction of Scrum in enterprises. He talks about double, triple, etc performance when teams move towards high performance ecosystems.
On one hand, this sounds a lot like a marketing talk. But on the other hand, I believe the results can be really great when scrum is applied appropriately (any agile process by the way).
When selling agile to senior management, in the end this is the only thing that matters to them. What do we get out of it? Is it worth the effort and risk?
