Around 2005, when I started using Scrum, I went looking for figures that would help me describe the process to my product owners, stakeholders, and my team. I think that it’s always good to use a visual aid to help someone understand process or where they fit into that process. Well, I found a free wallpaper over at Mountain Goat Software. Since then, I’ve seen this exact wallpaper used over and over again by many people, to describe Scrum.
Well, I thought it was time for a refresh. After I created my first prototype of a new wallpaper, I worked with Pictofigo to refine my vision of the Scrum process. Because the process is centered around people, I wanted to make sure they were in the drawing. Additionally, we made male and female versions. This free 300 dpi wallpaper is available for download from Premium Pictofigo. The first wallpaper (of figure) is 1600 x 1200. More sizes will be posted soon, so you don’t have to mess with them. Depending on feedback from the Scrum Community, we may refine the drawing a little. To get the latest and greatest, go to the Pictofigo website and get it for free.
