After years of following a scrum process at Tendril, we decided to throw out all of the rules.
We chose to optimize for speed and flexibility, and infuse our day-to-day work with the creative energy and autonomy of hackathons. There are no more story points, subtasks, or backlog groomings. Instead, product managers guide the team towards tangible business outcomes, and software developers, data scientists, and designers choose what to work on every week.
We’ll share our learnings, struggles, and successes to help you to roll out product development process changes at your own company.
