Construction

From the moment a work crew from STS Construction (STS) showed up at my house until the whole project was finished almost a year later, I witnessed and participated in some of the best Scrum I have seen. Even though STS had never heard of Scrum and would not have known what the term meant, the company had come up with a way of working that was Scrum. Not only was I impressed by the tactical scrum onsite, but when I learned how STS did its project management and scheduling, I was equally impressed by its strategic scrum working habits.

This Executive Update discusses the primary Scrum patterns and practices I saw in STS’s work that helped make our home remodel a success.
