Welcome to Scrum Dynamics episode 18, Successfully Implementing Dynamics 365 using Scrum, sponsored by Kingswaysoft. I recently presented a live session on YouTube for the Dynamics 365 Community Corner. I recorded a special version of his presentation for the Scrum Dynamics podcast.
In this episode I cover:
His first Dynamics CRM project using Scrum at Premier Medical Group
How and why he switched from Microsoft Dynamics SureStep to Scrum after publishing the functional requirements document
The horrors of basing a project plan and statement of work on a requirements specification
The successful outcome of the Premier Medical Group project
The definition of Scrum as a framework, not a prescriptive methodology
Scrum is one of several agile frameworks borne from the Agile Manifesto
How to describe Scrum in five minutes covering the five events, three roles, three deliverables and its principals and values
The top 10 benefits of Scrum for Dynamics 365 customers and project teams
26 tips for successfully implementing Dynamics 365 using Scrum covering:
Three roles: product owners, development teams, scrum masters; plus stakeholders
Three deliverables: product backlog, sprint backlog, product increment
Five events: sprints, sprint planning, daily scrum, sprint review and sprint retrospective
Since recording the podcast episode, Microsoft has published the YouTube video on the Dynamics 365 Community Corner on YouTube.
