SKILLS & TRICKS
After some thought i have decided to write and share some of the basics about Scrum. A lot of people have different views, theories and ways of doing things which they call Scrum. While i do not contest some of those practices but its essential to understand the concepts and strongly agree that every organization team will need to mold and churn some process to make things work.
So in this series of blogposts, the first one will be addressing the following:
- Scrum and Agile
- Agile Manifesto
- Agile Principles
- When to use Scrum VS other Methods
- Facts and Fibs about Scrum
- Scrum Timeline
- Scrum Roles and Team
At a later time, i'll share the more advanced stuff and also touch base with SAFE.
Scrum and Agile
It is not possible in some projects (especially in IT projects) to gather all the requirements upfront because of their extreme uncertainties. Therefore, we need a project management method flexible enough to deal with many change requests that appear during the project and keep the project team productive.
There are a number of systems designed to provide these two properties, and a group of them are called Agile Frameworks. Scrum is a project management method of the Agile group; it is the most famous and the most broadly used one.
Scrum is based on a certain process, which i'll explain in the next few blogposts as we progress. This Scrum process will not be effective, unless it is combined with certain roles and artifacts.
