David Herbst, SW Tester, Cleverlance, T-Mobile project"My beginnings in Scrum were not extremely dazzling. In the very beginning I was annoyed that I have to change my work style. In addition to it I was rather skeptical to the fact that Scrum should make something better. I was convinced that the output would be either none or definitely worse than when using the existing processes. Further development seemed to agree with my doubts. In the moment when our team stumbled at a complex task (adjustment of installation procedure) I was convinced that it is not the right way. However, today I can judge Scrum after tenth completed sprint and my view has changed from the base. Now I am convinced, that the period when I was a member of Scrum team, was probably the most inspiring time. Compared with projects in which I was involved during the last three or four years.

CleverlanceWhy was it I liked being in Scrum? As a team member I had much better conditions for my work. I could affect what and when will be done. I had a feeling that I am much closer to solving problems. That I not only search for them but that I am able to help solve them. Both developers and analyst were part of the same team, had the same goal as I had the same delivery schedules and therefore they had a reason (and also mind) to really cooperate. Compared to the classical approach (Waterfall) I was not only responsible for finding faults in other’s work. I was a team member leading up to the fulfillment of commitment. And it was a pleasant change. I am not able to evaluate if the Scrum is in absolute numbers more effective than the classical process model. But the Scrum definitely fulfilled my notions about how a developing team should work. As a shock troop, in which everyone has his task and which looks from outside as a homogenous unit. My feeling from this is more than positive."
