Client:  McGraw-Hill Education

Project Name:  Scrum Reference Cards

Medium:  Print

How would an educational publisher help its employees master a learning curve?


McGraw-Hill Education was thinking of adopting a project management method called Scrum, which is characterized by small teams who break work into chunks they can finish in two-week sprints. The company needed a way to teach and remind employees about how the new method worked. They asked me to work with a designer to create a series of desk reference cards.


As usual, structure was the key to my solution. I identified four qualities that set each scrum role apart from the others. I used short bulleted phrases to explain how. Lastly, to help others manager their expectations, I outlined the kinds of things each scrum player does and does not do.
