Testimonial from a Scrum Master and Scrum Product Owner:
"Scrum is a very powerful tool to have in your pocket. It's allowed us (Stanford Web Services) to maximize the value of our development time and deliver the most important features to our clients sooner. Don't let waterfall processes make you build something you don't really want! Try an agile approach."
— Linnea Williams, Technical Project Manager, Stanford Web Services
