Scrum and Benelux – leading the way

Enterprise Agile Planning


Yesterday after an interesting road trip [link to previous blog] that came with the delight of canceled flights and an unexpected train ride through the Germany and Dutch countryside I found myself in Amsterdam.  I hadn’t been here since a one day visit way back in 1996 and so I had a great burst of energy when I met up with Auke (our territory manager) at the Central station in downtown.

Central Station

I was there to meet up with customers and run two seminars called (a) Intro to Agile Business Values and Scrum Mechanics and (b) Enterprise Agile Transformation strategies.

My feeling on my way home is that Benelux and the Nordic countries are still way ahead of the rest of us when it comes to Agile transformations and a core understanding of when the mechanics of Scrum can and should be used as a means to an end to increase throughput, ROI, or team morale.  Overall, Finland is probably the most advanced as they were in the 90’s with the open source communities.  Now most Finnish companies we are speaking to are talking about DevOps and Lean – so my bet is that that by the end of say 2014 we will all be well versed in DevOps.

Are you in the developer eco-system (QA, BA, pub writer, dev, PO, ScrumMaster, etc)?  If so – do you agree with me?  Post your comments below.
