Zombie Scrum is something that looks like Scrum, but isn't Scrum at all when you take a closer look. Usually, Zombie Scrum is marked by a complete lack of working software, no involvement of the actual users and no drive to do anything about this.

This is nothing new. But instead of stating the obvious, we wanted to do something to help. So we built a Zombie Scrum Symptoms Checker - together with Johannes Schartau - to help create transparency around how teams are working with Scrum. Not only is this a helpful tool to start a conversation within your team, it also helps us gather more data around how Scrum is used around the world. Our hope is to improve our ability to help organizations and teams work with Scrum more effectively.

In this episode, Barry interviews Christiaan about this tool, how it was developed, what its purpose is and what our goals are with it.
