This interview, conducted by Amr Elssamadisy, was recorded at Agile2009, Chicago. InfoQ do a great job on video interviews. You can follow the text and jump to each new question if you get bored. The transcription sometimes errs though — how small exactly, is a minimized whip?
“Tobias Mayer talks about the philosophy behind WelfareCSM, unbounded vs bounded creativity, the application of Scrum outside of software development, Kanban vs Scrum, the benefits of fast-failing, software development as an artistic endeavour, software craftsmanship and XP, test-driven development, and the done state.”
Just for the record, I have now staged twelve WelfareCSM courses and taught ten of them myself, including three in partnership with other facilitators. The other two were taught by Doug Shimp, who went on to create “Hard Times University”, and Lyssa Adkins, who is currently adapting the model to “Non-profit Scrum”. I have two more scheduled for this year. See the WelfareCSM website for more details.
The first WelfareCSM class, held in San Francisco, was documented here: Joy and Chaos at the Hat Factory.
