A short summary of the talk:

The Scrum framework is gaining in popularity. It’s been believed that approximately 80% of organisations that are Agile use Scrum. However, the danger is that if Scrum is implemented incorrectly, it can become a waste and burden to the organisation rather than a tool enabling improvement and adding value to the customer.  The Scrum Master might be seen then more as a “Waste Master” rather than a facilitator of improvement and value creation.

During this session, we will look into 5 most common anti-patterns using real live examples.  We will discuss how Scrum can turn into waste if implemented incorrectly, from over-planning (over-processing) to long wait times (queues). Then we will reflect on how to add value with Scrum in those situations and how Scrum Masters can help to correct the course.
