Abstract: The government has for some time shown an interest in moving software development and potentially other management practices to Agile methods, including Scrum. However, the realities of implementing Scrum in some government environments can be fraught with difficulties and contradictions that make the process ineffective or untenable even when we "know" it should work. This discussion examines what common difficulties arise for the Scrum Master and development teams that limit the effectiveness of Scrum even when the government professes an interest and support. The discussion provides a very brief review of the Scrum method, and then discusses ways that government process limits its use. The presenter also provides insights into how some of the limitations can be mitigated to achieve a positive result for the client.
