Agile, Scrum

Can Scrum survive (in) the Enterprise?

That’s the question I’m asking myself these days…

Questioned Proposal

Apart from a different scale, is it much different than to adopt Scrum in a small sized company? I tend to think the same organizational and systemic dynamics come into play: company culture, senior management support, communication channels, work environment etc.

Is it the scale of everything and how deep the company culture is rooted that might make things a lot tougher?

What do you think? Can Scrum survive in the world of fixed scope and date, top-down management, lengthy weekly email reports with hundreds of recipients in CC, big bang releases with multi-million € Marketing campaigns?

I would love to read your comments on that one!

Update: Point 1 from this comment pretty much nails my thoughts on Agile in the Enterprise. It can’t work if the leaders don’t change.
