  • Increases productivity, as the team shares best practices for development and deployment, and developers need focus only on current business requirementsImproves quality, so the final application meets the needs and expectations of usersBreaks boundaries through collaboration and smooth information flowAccelerates development through simplified integration[2]Cuts maintenance time by synchronizing application and designMaximizes investments in skills, processes, and technologiesIncreases flexibility by reducing the time it takes to build and adapt applications that support new business initiatives
  • Capture requirementsManage backlogTrack iteration progress
  • Prefer tools with open APIs, plug-ins, web services, query language etc.
  • Explain on how to create simple backlog using excel/evernote etc.
  • We’ve started with sticky notes
  • Pros:High visibilityEasy to use and maintainCons:Statistics are not automatically createdNeed to go into the room
  • Pros:Can access from anywhereCan be sent in emailCons:Only one editor at a timeNeed to add statisticsNot automatic
  • Make it easy for the developers to write and test code
  • We’ve started with sticky notes
