Dual Track Scrum

Dual Track Scrum

This week I stumbled across an article which referenced something called “Dual Track Scrum” (see the links below). Intrigued, I researched a little more and was fascinated to discover that there was a documented process/approach to product development and delivery that was very similar to what had evolved for a product team I previously worked with.

This isn’t the first time this has happened to me. The last significant deja vu experience was when I found that there was a name for a software development approach that included: time boxing; daily team check-ins; planning and estimation as a team; work defined on a physical card on a white board; a definition of done for the time box that included all delivery activities; and a list of features that could be traded in and out if not yet started. Yes, that was the day I discovered that the approach our team had “created” to successfully deliver an off-shore project was, actually, called Scrum.
