Breaking Tradition – Moving from Waterfall to Scrum

The importance of software and web applications is increasing in our fast-moving world. Competition for people’s attention between game, work, and social media can be difficult.

The ability to iterate quickly over new ideas and innovations is imperative!

The life-cycle of your project can mean the difference between success and failure.

Waterfall and Traditional Methods of Software Development can sometimes take years to produce viable products.

Instead, using a somewhat non-traditional solution might improve your results!

We’ll look briefly at Agile vs. Waterfall vs. Kanban vs. Scrum, but mainly this will be a discussion about our company’s journey from Traditional (Waterfall) to Non-Traditional (Scrum). Real World: What we did that works, Pitfalls we experienced.

We’ll discuss how FamilySearch got to where we are and the tools we use to help us.

From this Presentation, we hope you’ll take away the following:

  1. Moving to Agile is Possible
  2. The benefits of a Scrum-based system
  3. Tools that can be used to help you be successful
