Have you checked out the newly released OUM 6.0? Amongst the many items on the "What's New" list you will notice that there is a new Scrum view and project plan, which are the direct result of collaboration by many global subject matter experts. The Scrum view and associated project plan provide a conceptual look at managing a Scrum-based project using OUM as the method and source of work products.
The Scrum view brings together into one place all the OUM tasks associated with managing a Scrum projects as well as all OUM Scrum supplemental content. The view provides navigation via a familiar Scrum Framework diagram, as well as by the more textual "Task and Work Products" section. The content within the view is grouped according to the Scrum Framework components of Project Kickoff, Sprint Planning, Sprint Review and Sprint Retrospective. This grouping allows those who are new to Scrum as well as those who are Scrum experts to be able to find relevant materials for their engagements.
Although a formal project plan may not be considered part of a highly agile environment, the Scrum project plan is provided to give projects a starting point for their plans and to leverage when the project situation calls for it. Also, the plan may be helpful as an education tool for those audiences less familiar with Scrum. As with any OUM project, this project plan should be tailored to suit the individual engagement.
Be sure to take a look at the new content within OUM 6.0 and provide your comments.
