  7. 7. Who is in Scrum Team ?  “Talent win games but teamwork and intelligence wins championships “- Michael Jordan  Product owner :responsible/keeper of the vision of the product , liaison between the business team and developer team , also control the priority of items in the backlog.  scrum Master : coach , guiding team to higher performance, facilitator and scrum expert , but not the boss.

  9. 9. What is Sprint  Sprint cycle is the foundation of Scrum , the iterative approach of getting thing done .  At the end of the sprint , team should be able to demonstrate a working software or product .  One to four weeks is the maximum length for a sprint.  Sprint planning meeting: beginning of the sprint . Team commit to a set of deliverables then define tasks that must be completed in order to deliver on the agreed upon user stories .1 or 2 hours per week for time box.
  10. 10. Standup  Standup or daily scrum meeting  Daily : every day at the same time  Small: only members of the development team participate, as comfortably as possible to stand around  Brief: no more than 15 min, not about solving major issues .  Pointed : Each participant shares: what accomplish since the last daily scrum, what I expect to accomplish , what obstacles or blockers are slowing me down .
  11. 11. Sprint Review  At end of the sprint , team get a chance to showcase a working software , in a demo to stakeholders.  Time box : half to one hour for every week of sprint.  Take note on stakeholders reaction and suggestion on the product to improve up .  Sprint retrospective: only for members of the team , team focus on what was learned and what to improve on .
