Scrumming at Pentaho

Today and tomorrow, Kenny Rubin is walking Pentaho’s Orlando Engineering team through the Scrum process, along with answering all of our questions about Scrum.  As defined on Wikipedia, “Scrum is a project management method for agile development”.  One point regarding agile software that resonates with me is the elimination of waste from the process.  As a developer, I can’t stand it when I’ve developed a product or a feature and watch it never get used.  By only delivering on prioritized stories, we can avoid unnecessary waste in the code and also unnecessary waste in analysis and design.
