Through a case study, I wanted to find out what advantages and disadvantages local companies consider with scrum and what they think about its future.
To find out what scrum is, I read the literature and scientific articles and then wrote surveys based on my thoughts.
Further, I also wanted to find out if it’s possible to use scrum in a school environment and therefore I visited a high school class who used scrum in one of their projects.
The result was good but could have been better as it requires more training of scrum to understand everything.
The surveys were distributed to various local companies. After having received a lot of answers, I concluded that the clear priority was the most positive feature of scrum and the most negative was that it was difficult to get the rest of the organization to understand scrum, which creates problems.
Both high school class and local companies believe in scrum’s future, even if they think scrum will be partially modified to adapt to the software-development in the future.
According to the survey responses, the most important to get the projects to be successful both now and in the future is that everyone who work with scrum is right educated.
