Reference - Kros

“At our company, Kros, we have kept an eye on agile methods and especially Scrum for a long time, but nobody really believed that it could actually work. How can we just let people choose what they want to do and how much they want to do! How are we going to plan? (To tell the truth our planning has been very unreliable up till now.) How are we going to know if people are working enough?

Kros

In the end we told ourselves we would give it a try, and after an initial partial success, we had all the developing teams involved in the development in accordance with Scrum.  Zuzka helped us at our regular meetings by giving feedback and suggestions for further improvements of our work. Today, after nearly a year of operation, there is still room for improvement, but we know for sure that we managed to solve three major problems that we had had - the quality of products delivered to customers, scheduling and estimating the range of tasks that can be accomplished in a given period, and last but not least, we have supported our teams, for which the scrum was a new incentive to improve their work, the work conditions, mutual relations and gave them satisfaction from success.
