Scrum is a framework that is used for managing the production of complex products. It enables solving problems in such a way so that products of the highest possible value can be developed in a productive and creative way.

Business side by side with technology

At the end of the 1990s, traditional methods of managing the production of products became ineffective. The key to success has been an openness to change, adapting to the ever-changing requirements of customers and users, and the ability to plan for the short term. These values formed the basis of the Agile Software Development Manifesto, which revolutionised the approach to project management.

What does Scrum have to do with Agile?

Scrum is one of the most popular agile methodologies. It enables the creation of a product of the highest quality for the customer on the foundation of three pillars:

  • Transparency
  • Inspection
  • Adaptation

These benefits cannot be ignored!

There are many advantages of using Scrum and we prove it in the articles we collected. However, there are three effects that cannot be ignored:

  1. Delighted customers and end users. Products and services are delivered faster than using the waterfall method and are also better suited to the needs of users.
  2. Reducing costs by maximising the amount of work that is not done
  3. A more productive team

If not Scrum, then what?

Scrum won’t work everywhere in its pure form. However, it can be a great foundation for other practices and methodologies. If certain Scrum elements do not fit into your process, don’t hesitate to get rid of them.

The SCRUM project management framework is very popular in the IT industry.  At our Drupal development agency, we decided to implement SCRUM as a basic tool for working with our clients a while ago. In this article, you can read more about the ins and outs of such an approach, as well as about how it benefits both parties. SCRUM is very easy to understand, yet quite hard to properly implement.

The product owner has an important role in a team, so it’s better to set with them cooperative objectives, expectations, and rules at the beginning of a project. And this is where great communication skills can help.  A happy customer can hire your team again for another project or recommend your software development agency to their friends. This is why your relationship with a product owner is very crucial for the success of your company.

We recently wrote about  why SCRUM improves software development quality and why remote scrum teams are often a good choice.  Today we will discuss a very important part of scrum which is often neglected, what leads to reduced preformance, delays and mistakes - Sprint Retrospective.  What is Sprint Retrospective? This is one of the meetings in the SCRUM methodology. The meeting takes place on a regular basis, at the end of each sprint.

The deadline is today. A remote development team have worked for several weeks on your software. You obtain the long-awaited access to the system. You check it and you are not satisfied with the achieved results. All that was needed to avoid this problem is a team with experience in technology and working using SCRUM. What is SCRUM Wikipedia defines SCRUM as an agile framework for managing work. It is an approach used in many companies to develop software.
