Wow, that's very interesting. Are they physically working together? If so, in which city? Doing a bit of googling, I found a description of Abigail's When Scrum Isn't Agile Enough talk at YAPC::Europe 2010:

In early 2009, started using the agile programming technique, Scrum, for doing development. Right from the beginning, needed to steer away from the formal Scrum way in order to cope with its unique demands. Over a period of a year, has evolved the technique it uses, resulting in a methodology called "Beyond Scrum".

In this talk, we discuss the Scrum methodology, and how initially implemented it. We then discuss the shortcomings and problems encountered, and how has solved them. We finish we an overview of how currently uses its "Beyond Scrum" methodology.

Did anyone attend this talk? If so, can you remember any details of the "Beyond Scrum" methodology? I googled but couldn't find a description of it.

    Yes most of us work together in the office - some people work from home. City is Amsterdam - and there is much more of us than you would think ;) I'm not sure about the exact numbers as I never bothered to count - but I would say that 50 is way too little.

    And the correct name/site is:

[Corion]: LanX: Ow ;)
Discipulus manual work: i just tell the same to my boss: every time the quick solution is to assign some manual data entry task to my group.. because we have not direct access to many databases here..
[LanX]: point is: in high speed trade each bank has to remember what he has to get from the others... so dresdner got billed for losses but couldn't claim gains
Discipulus is this the IT?
[Corion]: Discipulus: Well, in many cases it doesn't make sense to build an interface and complicated program just to enter 20 rows into a database ;) But yes, automating data imports should pay off in the long run
[LanX]: Choroba: this happened before I joined, was still in uni, but my boss was summoned to the CEO of the second biggest German bank at that time and could only say " I told them its not ready" ;)
