In this episode, Danielle discusses her initial experience with applying Scrum to a non-tech project. The project aimed to reorganize company seating, involving a change process to address employee concerns. Initially met with resistance, employees feared task loss. Efforts to engage and define needs through workshops proved challenging, and the team underestimated employee buy-in effort. They adapted their change strategy, incorporating World Cafe for needs collection. Over time, improved presentation of solutions led to changed perspectives. By integrating feedback and sharing plans each sprint, trust was built. Danielle emphasizes the versatility of Scrum beyond tech, highlighting the iterative approach for complex, uncertain projects.
