You already know Scrum. You have likely seen it at work. In this discussion, we will investigate Guidewire Software, a financial services firm built completely on Scum. Not only does the firm use Sprint teams for every function in the company, the firm has used Scrum since its founding day. I encourage you to review the case study so we can have a focused discussion on the issues around such a complete adoption of the methodology, especially as the firm expands beyond 500 employees.
Guidewire Software exclusively serves the property & casualty insurance industry. Guidewire builds and implements the core systems on which insurance carriers run their businesses.
