Microsoft Scrum 1.0 Process Template–Watch the videos

In my role as an ALM Consultant/Trainer, I regularly go onto new client sites to assist them in their adoption of Microsoft Team Foundation Server. I also help them choose a suitable process template and often do the customisation of the template to better fit their unique needs.

I am still surprised by the number of sites that don’t even know of Microsoft’s Scrum process template. While it is not a silver bullet and may not suit every organisations needs, it does provide a great option for teams looking to adopt Scrum practises.

Rich Hundhausen, author of the Scrum Developer Training course, has recorded two videos on Channel 9 to show people what this process template is all about.

I strongly suggest if your looking at choosing a process template for your team, you should lock yourself away in a meeting room for a couple of hours and check these videos out.

    The most UNPROFESSIONAL webcast ever!!! Do you work for SUN Microsystems? Why do you think that someone will use SCRUM 1.0 template after all of yours “ooops”, “I believe”, “my bad”, “I hope”, “I have no idea” etc. in your video? It’s time for you to get a real job. I feel sorry for for anyone else who wasted two hours watching this CRAP like I did!!!
    Shame on you!

    • Hi Vitaliy,

      I am sorry to hear you didn’t find watching Richard’s webcasts useful. While the webcasts certainly showed a relaxed Richard, I can assure you he is a consumate professional and definitely knows his stuff where Scrum is concerned. I for one appreciate Richard donating his time to share some of his knowledge about the template with the public.

      As an aside, I have attended some of Richard’s training courses and have found them very very useful and a worthwhile investment of my time.

      Cheers
      Anthony

        Thanks for these two great videos. Really helped shorten my learning curve on Scrum template.
