Using Scrum to increase and track ROI and predict future value
More companies, both in the US and abroad, would use Scrum if they could understand and visualize the return on investment. Other companies already have a sizable investment in Scrum (training, Certifications, coaching, tools, etc.) How can they measure the value they are receiving? In this presentation I discuss the economics of using Scrum: How US and international companies can use Scrum to lower their taxable liability by correctly identifying CapEx and OpEx. How a company can use financial and Scrum based metrics to be more predictive and better prepared to measure ROI with Scrum. Scrum is better equipped and better documented than Waterfall at producing measurable value and cost savings. I also will discuss lessons learned from companies that have used Scrum and metrics to measure financial return.
• Understand the differences between Capital Expenditures and Operational Expense and the US and International laws which govern them.
• How software developed with Scrum can be used as an financial asset
• The Economics behind Scrum and why it makes sense in financial world
