In February 2015, Scrum Alliance® surveyed almost 5,000 people about their use of Scrum. The survey respondents make up a diverse group, representing 108 countries and more than 14 industries. They reflect a range of functional areas, including IT software development, product development, operations, human resources, executives, and sales and marketing. 

From the survey results, we see that Scrum is becoming an increasingly popular and in-demand framework. In fact, nearly half the respondents report that Scrum is being used 50% or more of the time in their organizations, and 29% of respondents report it’s used much more frequently than that. The survey uncovered some interesting key findings…findings that not only reflect where Scrum is today but what we can anticipate it will look like tomorrow. These include who is practicing Scrum, how they are practicing it, success levels associated with Scrum, and plans for continuing to use it.

On June 11th 2015 we had another very successful meetup, this time on Kanban. Demir Selmanovic from Toptal did a great job last evening and meetup ended up late due to many comments, questions and observations. It was a fruitful learning experience and participants expressed great interest in the topic of this meetup.

We hope to extend our cooperation with Toptal and other organizations practicing Kanban for the benefit of our community. Thank you Demir for a great atmosphere and lecture and we also thanks our friends from Academy387 for providing excellent services.

 
 

 

On May 13th 2015 we had another successful meetup at Faculty of Electrical Engineering in Sarajevo.

Meetup was attended by 80 students and they had an opportunity to learn more on traditional vs. agile software develepment, with special attention given to topic of software quality. Our lecturer, Enis Zeherović, QA/QC specialist, shared his experiences in transition to agile. The core of agile is early delivery of working software and that is why QA and test engineers are essential in any agile project.

Bosnia Agile was invited to the Agile Adria, the fourth Agile Croatia conference that was held from April 13 to 15 in the beautiful natural surroundings of Terme Tuhelj. The visitors, mainly from the Croatian, but also other countries in the region, had the opportunity to attend a series of lectures and workshops. In particular, keynote speakers were well received:

Mary Poppendieck (USA) with a lecture "The scaling dilemma" and "Value Stream Mapping" workshop, which was referred to the importance of communication between teams working on software development and how today's companies have to orient to the end user, and not as in the past just think of things like cutting costs or deadlines, in order to eventually have a successful product, and better business results.

Tom Gilb (Norway), Agile's grandfather, as he likes to say for itself with the theme "Power to the Programmers!", which also conducted all-day workshop on "Lean QA: Much more cost-effective quality assurance methods, than testing".

Stephen Parry (United Kingdom) with the theme "Frontier challenges for the Lean and Agile to stay on purpose" and the workshop "'I am Spartacus' - would the real lean thinker please stand up?".

Other speakers topics varied from the practical exercise of making the product according to Scrum principles, open space discussion of how to extract more value from retrospective through special exercises, so that everyone could find something for themselves.
