We report on the experience of re-introducing Scrum in a project team that had previously failed to adopt that agile method. We explore the reasons we believe that caused the failure and explain how we approached the team to uncover them. Then, we describe our strategy to avoid incurring in those problems again and to take the team to a higher level of productivity, quality and personal satisfaction. We also present the motivation and the actions taken to go further and scale this scenario to multiple feature-oriented teams using Scrum of Scrums. All these changes occurred in less than one year.
