In overall it is a useful video. There are some gaps, but it`s short and sweet :)

Is everyone missing the fact that it was not in 180 seconds?

A couple of distinctions that might be useful to add are the differences between requirements and stories, and between hours and points.

This was great, thank you. I think it's a bit silly as it's a bunch of new terminology and concepts that those of us in the business have known for years, but your video presented a nice over in and gave me more information in 8 minutes than some videos 2 or 3 times as long.

Renaming 'Rugby method' to 'Agile' might be the most brilliant move by Sutherland and Scbwab, apart from mastering the method.

Disappointed watching this video. Firstly is he talking about scrum or agile project management? Lol! Secondly half of the things he spoke about were correct but some were just a load of faff. In scrum, there is no prescribed way of writing PBIs (Product Backlog Items) so I’m free to write then however the end users and team understand them, however writing them in a format of user stories is recommended but not required.

Devin.. Good job. A lot of people here view agile as ritual..think they have to follow exactly like 99.99% coach them.. You did good as you gave the philosophy in short time. Time boxed only for sprint as they is a culture change, to deliver in that time boxed agreed backlog and tasks.. Now how I do it depends on project and it's complexity.. Not all projects are applications, web development.. I also liked when you said, where actually agile works.. Cross functional, where scope creep is allowed.. I want to add the scrum team should not be more than 10 (max) ideally about 7 staff

With all respect, Agile didn't start 1986 and not even 1996. I have been doing Project Management since 1987. First Agile is BS. It is not new. They just changed names: Sprint are releases, Scrum is project status meeting where the PM review the status, risks and issues. Stand up meetings are checkpoint meetings and you ONLY do that when is close to deployment or cutover IF NEEDED. New Project Managers think Agile is new methodology which is not. It is just a business marketing to make money

There was also a thing back in the 80's and 90's called "Inch Pebbles". Breaking work down to small segments. Known today as "User Stories".
Charles Colpitts (5 months ago)
This is wrong on several counts. 1. There is no such thing as "Agile Project Management". 2. There is no scrum role called "Agile Project Manager". 3. Scrum is not just for the types of projects mentioned. 4. The co-author of Scrum in the US is not "Schwab". He is Ken Schwaber. The presenter does correct this on the closing. 5. Scrum is not about project management. It is more accurately about product management. 6. The discussion of stories and backlogs is wrong. Backlogs do not make up stories. The backlog consists of stories. 7. The "daily scrum meeting", frequently called the "standup" takes more than 5 minutes. Three minutes per person is a good rule of thumb. 8. The presentation is over 8 minutes long, not "180 seconds". I would urge our colleagues to look elsewhere for a a primer on scrum.

Sir Let me ask some question below for your explanation will be great appreciated. 1. Many tasks can complete in 1 day even a week due to it has to supported from various department such as procurement , engineering , production, construction logistic and so on. How we run scrum meeting effectively ? 2. As of Agile and Scrum concept , do any construction business use before?

zork (11 months ago)
Interesting concepts but going from first principles the PM role doesn’t exist in Agile using Scrum. The leadership and work control is intended to be mainly carried out by the Product Owner and an autonomous team. The facilitation and soft skills should be provided by the Scrum Master. I think in most organisations this creates a problem due to their hierarchical management structures and lack of comprehension or trust of Agile self governance. It’s a Very informative presentation though.

Very impressed that you did the whole thing in one take. At 3:42 you say that Sprint Planning includes end users: this is highly unusual. Stakeholders may be involved, but Product Owner + Scrum Master + Dev Team (only) is more usual.

mohammed abbas (1 year ago)
Excellent and very efficient! However, I suggest to specify the step of potentialy shippable product increment generates by a sprint execution. This increment has to be challenged by users and it's the important moment to collect feedback, new requirements, remarks and to refresh the Product Backlog Items... Scrum have to facilitate the exchange between the end user, to respond to the demand and to be "time to market".

The question still remains: How could the biggest projects in the history of mankind like the Manhattan Project or Operation D-Day be completed with success without any modern management principles or software tools?
Atralb (8 months ago)
Because those projects involved the best in each domain concerned and most likely personally-involved people, and thus didnt need a good management authority as in companies where people are most certainly not the best of their domain and generally not personally interested in their company's project which makes a management team necessary in order to get the best out of them.

after reading some of the comments here is my input. Guys this guy is being ironic with the title where is your sense of humor. It does not matter if it's Agile or Waterfall as history has shown chances are projects very rarely are on time, hence the sarcasm. Also for those of you who don't know but like to make uneducated comments in Agile there is a Scrum Master which is the equivalent of a Project Manager in Waterfall.
Bryon Lape (2 years ago)
There is no such thing as agile project management. When a team is agile, they don't need a project manager.
Abbas Dar (3 months ago)
Omair Sheikh scrum master is not a project manager. If you do scrum as the scrum guide states, the roles and responsibilities of a project manager is split between the Product Owner, Scrum Master and Development Team itself, hence no need for a project manager.
Andrew Helmy (4 months ago)
Correct Scrum is about product development not project management...

great first 30 seconds - Agile is not right for everything. I love the pace of this. Around 2:30 great description of story and backlog etc. Good job!
AMG Power (2 years ago)
I thought he made a poor job of explaining stories and backlog. It's so easy to explain too, shame
You're a little bit wrong. In daily scrum meeting scrum master must ask 3 questions: 1. What did you do yesterday? 2. What will you do today? 3. Are there any impediments in your way? And not that you plan to do tomorrow. In these matters there is a big difference. And the goal of this meeting to understand what obstacles are on the way the team.

connelly6375 (2 years ago)
From what I have seen this method discourages taking on really big projects. By requiring a potentially shippable product at the end of every sprint you are making big projects that take months before they could ever be considered shippable look unappealing. Often after several iterations of smaller projects and not shipping the team realizes they could have done the bigger one in that time and actually addressed the real problems. Don't forget, this was invented in the restaurant industry.

Scrum study is issuing SMC(Scrum master certificate). is it valid certificate?
Kevin D (2 years ago)
That was great! But i wish he would talked about Epic and difference between user stories. And you didn't talk about sizing the stories!
James J. Attard (2 years ago)
+Kevin D Epic is a collection of stories. Example: Epic "Data Warehouse". Story 1: "As CTO I would like to find a suitable visualisation tool based on budget and resources available". Story 2: "As DBA I would like to design ETL workflow"...Story n: "As a marketing executive I would like to see how sales of product x are correlated with demographics". Sizing of stories is done during the second part of the sprint planning (he mentioned it briefly) - normally scrum team 'vote' the points of the story. Hope this makes sense.

All these ceremonies mentioned by this speaker are actually facilitated by the Scrum Master and product owner and not the Project Manager in an ideal team, Although the project management can also do the same since there are many different flavors being done by the different organizations

Hi, I like your content and generic explanations, however, for future videos (my point of view) you need to have a script to follow rather than simple bullet points because in this video you loose your train of thought an come across as guessing rather than factual.

Sudhanshu Acharya (3 years ago)
Thanks for an excellent video but there is One correction - In a Scrum Meeting, we discuss: "What was done y'day, What will be done today and what are the roadblocks and how to remove those" . We do not discuss that what will be done tomorrow as that will be discussed tomorrow ! This is Agile....

Maurice Zondag (4 years ago)
An 8 minute video titled Agile Project management in 3 minutes is not very convincing. If this would be a project, it would be more then twice as long costing me twice as much time and effort, has a wrong product delivered (an 8 minute video in stead of a 3 minute video) and thus showing the basic problem of many projects. Promises aren not met, budget and time exceeded and an endproduct you didn't ask for. Well done guys. Very convincing to hire you as a project manager. 
Kenji Dubuisson (3 years ago)
+solongsucka He is only pointing out the false advertisement... what don't you guys understand?
solongsucka (3 years ago)
+Maurice Zondag Are you a new PM? You have said "managing expectations" several times. Agile is not about managing expectations, it is about getting stuff done and getting it done visibly quick. There is no room for traditional "managing expectations" PMs or in fact PMs in agile. It is more fit for the "doer" environment. 
Maurice Zondag (3 years ago)
+solongsucka I didn't say agile should be short. It's about managing expectations, just like any project management methodology. And stating it's a three minute video that turns out to be an 8 minute video is quite the opposite.
solongsucka (3 years ago)
+Maurice Zondag Agile does not mean short. You clearly have no idea what agile means and I dont blame you since a lot of people out there dont know it either. 
Maurice Zondag (3 years ago)
usualy not so much haha, but a title that says 3 minutes on a video that takes 8 minutes is not a very good representation for the trustworthy aspect of managing expectations, hence that project management is all about managing expectations. Doesn't do the agile teechnique any good imho. Don't you agree?
nolimits2life (4 years ago)
Excellent!  Thanks for the helping me see it clearly!
