Why a "Scrum for Video Game Development" Course?

What areas does a Scrum for Video Game Development course cover that others don't?

Plenty. Video game development has unique challenges that other industries do not.  For example, death-march-crunches are harder to avoid.  Mainstream app development can manage crunch by managing technical debt and scope.  Video game development has more varieties of debt (art, tech, design, content production) that have to be managed differently. We cannot just cut content production for schedule reasons and ship four hours of single-player gameplay to meet a schedule. This requires a different approach.

We discuss this and many other game-development-unique approaches in my interactive workshops.  I invite you to bring your questions or challenges to discuss. We'll share what many studios have discovered through experimentation and practices that were captured in my more recent book: Gear up! Advanced Game Development Practices.
