The next Scrum Gathering is coming up and they are having 6 TED style talks.


You can help make history by voting to have me present one of those talks


I can hear you saying, "Well sure, Malcolm, what can I do to help you?" I'm glad you asked.


It's really simple, click here and cast 3 votes for my talk "Fortune 500 Scrum Coaching for the developer turned Scrum Master."


Scrum adoption in a Fortune 500 company is very different than Scrum adoption in a smaller company. 

If you came to Scrum through a project management background, there will no surprises in this talk.  If, however, you came to Scrum from a developer background, get ready for some counter intuitive surprises.  I'm going to talk about some realities of navigating the waters of a large company and explore a few things that I wished I had known about sooner than I did.

Why Fortune 500 timescales are paradoxical and how to take advantage of them.

Why your superior solution will always be rejected at every possible turn.

Why Agile Engineering must be avoided for as long as possible.
