If you are a software development team, one great method to work with on your projects is to regularly Scrum. It is an Agile method that can be used in the development of any project. Surprisingly easy to use, it is best applied for those who have aggressive deadlines and complex requirements. Scrum is not a new product of Agile. In fact, it has been around as early as 1993 and since then has been helping software developers who want to create software faster and at a competitive cost.This makes Scrum very advantageous for those who want to keep a high pace in a competitive market.
The Scrum teams, their associated roles, rules, events, and artifacts compose the Scrum framework. Each framework has a specific purpose. Scrum teams, composed of five to nine people, work with sprints, basic units in developing software. Each sprint starts with a brief planning meeting where the tasks have to be identified and a goal is established. This will be concluded by a review before the next sprint is identified. In every sprint, the software development team assigned should complete their particular portions. There is no traditional role in the team, like an architect, tester, or designer, for instance. Everyone works together to finish the task. It can take one to four weeks before a sprint is done. Everyday, team members are required to attend a daily meeting for 15 minutes. The members engage in a discussion as to what they were able to work on the prior day, what are they planning to work on that day, and what are the problems that would hamper the processes. The development team is not just involved in a particular portion; they are also involved in the whole cycle of development, starting from planning, design, coding, analysis, unit testing, and acceptance testing. The team is self-organizing as there is no overall team leader who commands how each person will proceed. It is also cross-functional, which means that every person in the team is required in the implementation of the project. There is however the presence of ScrumMaster, the coach of the team, who helps team members in the performance of their functions. He is responsible in ensuring the team members productive. Meanwhile, the product owner (PO) represents the users, customers, and other stakeholders. Usually, he comes from the marketing or product management department.
One of the most important principles of Scrum is the fact that it recognizes that customers can change their minds anytime at any stage of the project. There may also be unpredictable challenges that the teams may encounter. Scrum is designed in such a way that developers would be able to easily address these challenges when they come up. Its designers, researchers, and engineers always come up with expertly positioned products that are both easy to use and highly desirable. By employing Scrum tactics, we our service to customers is the highest possible.
