Working for nearly 20 years in software development, as a developer, development manager and Scrum Master.
Started using Scrum as a product owner and was quickly won over to Agile methods. Working in today's complex and changing worlds we need a frame work to interact with our customers and respond in a timely manner to their business needs. Scrum gives that framwork for modern software can be development.
I'm a strong Agile evangelist, wherever I have managed to get the Agile mindset in place, we have succeeded in whatever goal we set our selves. Scrum with a "yes but" attitude will only fail.
