We use the Agile Scrum development methodology to produce most of our work, particularly for larger, complex projects. Using, Agile Scrum, the project team (Us) organizes project work into a series of design and development cycles. The main benefit for the product owner (You) is a bird's eye view of the project throughout the development life cycle.
Other Advantages of Scrum
In addition the transparency Agile Scrum provide our clients, there are many of benefits of using this development methodology. Here are just a few.
How it Works
The Agile / Scrum framework has three general roles for project participants,
Within the Agile Scrum framework, projects progress through a series of iterations called Sprints. A type Sprint is timed to last from between 2 weeks to 1 month and contains a predetermined number of features to design and develop, for example,
with each feature broken down into component parts, such as
The features placed into a Sprint depend on factors such as
as well as any number of client and vendor requirements.
At the start of each sprint, team members commit to completing X amount of features during the Sprint. At the end of each sprint, the team produces a usable product increment — i.e. working, high-quality software. Each Sprint is reviewed during a demonstration of the Sprint’s features. The goal of this review is to derive feedback from the product owner and stakeholders. This feedback may result in changes to the freshly delivered work product, or just as likely, result in revising or adding items to the next Sprint.
And so it goes, Sprint to Sprint, sprinting toward a successful launch.
