Scrum doesn't work in China! (MB I/II)
Some people exclaim: “Scrum doesn't work in China”. But is that true? How does national culture affect Agile development and Scrum? Bas Vodde grew up in Holland and lived for about ten years in Asia. He has worked with teams in US and most European and Asian countries and agrees that national culture does matter. In this keynote, Bas will start off exploring his own culture and how that influenced his view on what he does. He'll then explore other national cultures by going over different studies, surveys and stories searching for the answer to the question... Can Scrum work in China?

Scrum and XP: Myths, truths and how to do it.
Scrum and Extreme Programming are two common Agile frameworks. You may have heard that Scrum is equivalent to XP without technical practices. Or, perhaps you have heard that Scrum is only a project management framework. The presentation intents to explore the truth in these matters and to discuss how to effectively integrate the XP technical practices within the Scrum framework.

Technical Excellence: What Is It and How To Get It?
One of the twelve principles in the Agile Manifesto declares, “Continuous attention to technical excellence and good design enhances agility.” The Scrum Guide, however, does not speak about technical excellence but points out that, “Scrum requires Teams to build an increment of product functionality every Sprint,” which implies that whatever the Team does must be sustainable. In this talk we explore what constitutes as technical excellence for a Scrum Team. We ask how it shows in the product and in our process. We also ask how lack of it impacts development and how do we obtain technical excellence.

Shanghai Scrum Gathering 2010 Featured presenters
Kane Mar is a Certified Scrum Trainer (CST) and Scrum Coach (CSC) specializing in Scrum and Extreme Programming. He has been working exclusively with Agile software development teams since 2001 and has worked with clients such as QPass, Microsoft, Capital One, Progressive, and TransCanada Pipelines. Kane believes that learning is most effective if done through a combination of exercises, games, and discussion. He has constructed his training materials to provide an educational but still enjoyable course.
Kane is also experienced in guiding organizations that are transitioning to an Agile organization. This includes preparing senior management and business partners for changes resulting from the introduction of Scrum.
Prior to his work with Agile software development, Kane had 15 years of experience as a developer and project manager for Waterfall and RUP projects working with Java, Smalltalk, C, SQL and PL/SQL. Kane's recent technical interests have turned towards Ruby primarily because of its similarity to Smalltalk.

Scrum Alliance President and Chairman of the Board
I “stumbled upon” Scrum after spending time as a new IT Project Manager in a big company (IT workforce of 5,000+ people). I read about Scrum in magazines and online and thus began an adventure/journey in early 2004 of exploration and discovery of a meaningful way of working. Our company is pretty stoic and traditional and operates in a rather conservative industry (insurance and financial services). When I approached Ken Schwaber about using Scrum in January 2004, he invited me to attend CSM training. It was an excellent idea, except that the project on which we would apply Scrum launched and I couldn't get away. Ken's answer - "read the book that I and [Mike] Beedle wrote and apply the concepts. And let me know how it goes." I did just that. Now, over 4 years later, our IT organization is in the midst of adopting Scrum and other agile practices, and embarking on its own journey of continuous improvement. Will it ever get "all the way there?" I don't know (the journey never ends, I bet.) But, it sure is a lot more fun and rewarding, and a lot less frustrating, to work on and with projects, now. And, moreover, our teams are enjoying this way of doing work much more!
I came to our Systems department in 2001 with 25 years of business background, so I can appreciate a Product Owner's challenges and responsibilities. I have found that I can provide value as a ScrumMaster in many ways through servant leadership, teaching and coaching. I enjoy working with and around technology, and working with bright, fun, motivated and interesting people. I get the chance to do that every day now.
Outside of work, I teach scuba diving and travel to scuba dive, officiate high school football, ride my recumbent bike to work and elsewhere, and enjoy my family of 3 daughters (Lindsey 5 yrs, Kristen 3 yrs, and Amanda 1 year) and my great wife, Maryann.
Bas Vodde, originally from Holland, has lived in China and Finland. Currently he lives and works in Singapore. In Holland he was working as a developer and always felt a disparity between the development he experienced while working and the development that "the official literature said you should do." This disparity was solved when Extreme Programming was introduced and with the introduction of the Agile Manifesto.
In early 2001, he had enough of the "normal life" and moved to China and started working for Nokia. At Nokia, he worked on very large and traditional projects. This uncomfortable experience convinced him that Agile Development is the best way of developing software product -- no matter how large your development is. After a couple years, he moved to Helsinki with the purpose of introducing Agile Development (and in particular Scrum) in Nokia Networks (later NSN). He watched dozens of product groups adopt scrum and other agile practices. After a while, he moved back to China (Finland is cold) and helped one large product group with its Scrum adoption.
Bas work for a small consulting company based in Singapore called Odd-e specializing in training and coaching related to agile and lean development in Asia.
Bas is interested in Scrum with a special focus on large companies and large product development. But he also enjoyed working on technical practices, especially test-driven development (especially in embedded environments) and continuous integration. He keeps working as a developer because he strongly believes you need a well-factored code base if you want to be fast and flexible. His hobbies are studies in lean production and quality management and, of course, programming.
Bas is the author of the "Scaling Agile and Lean Development: Thinking and Organizational Tools for Large-Scale Scrum" and of "Practices for Large-Scale Agile and Lean Development," both together with Craig Larman. He is also one of the authors of the CppUTest unit test framework for C/C++.
Mitch Lacey is an agile practitioner and trainer. Mitch has been managing projects for over twelve years and has numerous plan-driven and agile projects under his belt.
Mitch honed his agile skills at Microsoft Corporation, where he successfully released core enterprise services for Windows Live. Mitch's first agile team at Microsoft was coached by Ward Cunningham (creator of the wiki and co-creator of Extreme Programming), Jim Newkirk (creator of nUnit) and David Anderson (Kanban advocate).
While at Microsoft, he transitioned from Program Manager to Agile Coach, working hand-in-hand with groups throughout their transition to Agile practices. After Microsoft, Mitch was the Agile Practice Manager at Ascentium Corporation where he practiced agility on the projects he ran every day while coaching customers on agile practices and lessons on agile adoption worldwide.
As a Certified Scrum Trainer (CST) and a registered Project Management Professional (PMP), Mitch shares his experience in project and client management through Certified ScrumMaster courses, Agile coaching engagements, conference presentations, blogs and white papers.
He is the author of “Adventures in Promiscuous Pairing” presented and published at the Agile 2006 conference, “Transitioning to Agile: Key Lessons Learned in the Field” presented and published at the Fall 2007 PMI Global Congress in Atlanta, Georgia and "The Impacts of Poor Estimating - and How to Fix It" presented and published at the winter 2007 SQE Agile development conference in Orlando, Florida.
He has presented at Agile Alliance Agile 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009 conferences, the 2008 Better Software Conference and the 2008 and 2009 SQE Agile Development Practices conferences. He was the stage producer for the Organization and Culture stage for Agile 2009 and is continuing that trend by producing the Leadership and Organizations stage for Agile 2010.
Mitch is currently authoring a book targeting new Scrum teams on how to survive the first year of Scrum. The book will be published by Addison Wesley and is scheduled for publication in 2010.
Lasse Koskela works as a coach, trainer, consultant and programmer, spending his days helping clients and colleagues at Reaktor create successful software products. He has trenched in a variety of software projects ranging from enterprise applications to middleware products developed for an equally wide range of domains.
In the recent years, Lasse has spent an increasing amount of time giving training courses and mentoring client teams on-site, helping them improve their performance and establish a culture of continuous learning. Aside from consulting leaders and managers, Lasse enjoys programming and works frequently hands-on with software teams.
In his spare time, Lasse hacks on open source projects, moderates discussions at JavaRanch, or writes about software development. In 2007, he published a book on Test Driven Development and is currently working on his next book. He is one of the pioneers of the Finnish agile community and speaks frequently at international conferences.
