In our continuous Data Vault Friday series, our CEO Michael Olschimke addresses a pertinent question from our audience regarding the application of Scrum in Data Vault 2.0.

“We are struggling with the application of Scrum in Data Vault 2.0: the Kanban board is overloaded with technical user stories. However, in theory, the user stories should be oriented towards the business and user needs.”

In this insightful video, Michael delves into the challenges faced when integrating Scrum methodologies into Data Vault 2.0 projects, particularly the issue of an overloaded Kanban board with technical user stories. The question prompts a discussion on the alignment of user stories with business and user needs, emphasizing the importance of maintaining a business-centric focus.

Michael shares practical insights and recommendations for optimizing the use of Kanban boards in Data Vault 2.0 projects, ensuring a balance between technical requirements and business-oriented user stories.
