  3. 3. Scrum for dummies Origins of Scrum popularity Agile Manifesto, created in 2001 by 17 world-class geeks, in reaction to insanely heavy/inefficient existing project methods. Emergence of “Agility” word (Scrum has been created in 1995, tho). 4 principles Individuals and interactions >> processes and tools Working software >> comprehensive documentation Customer collaboration >> contract negotiation Responding to change >> following a plan 3

  5. 5. Scrum for dummies “Problem” • Customers do not know what they want Consequences • The delivered product does not meet the customer's expectations • Lots of time wasted on abortive & exhaustive specifications, the workload is not evenly distributed amongst workers 5
  6. 6. Scrum for dummies Solutions • release early, release often → small independent working pieces of software (“software increments”, easier to test!) → development industrialization (continuous integration, automatic testing...) • involve the customer from the beginning → start with something, even inaccurate → early demos, early feedback • specify the present, plan the future → accurate backlog items for the closest sprints → less precise ideas for the last ones 6
  7. 7. Scrum for dummies Cycles Releases fixed-length periods (~2-3 months) broken down into sprints Sprints fixed-length iterations (~2-4 weeks) No rules about pushes to production. A push can occur every hour for instance (see Facebook). Fixed duration but variable perimeter (best effort) never postpone the deadline but remove something WHY? once again, earlier feedback! cramming is not sustainable bearable work pace → higher quality Image located at http://files.myopera.com 7
  8. 8. Scrum for dummies Artifacts Backlog prioritized set of features (releases) or stories (sprints) related to the product to be delivered Feature big functional product subset (e.g. “partner access to back-office”) User Story functional test cases (← these forms the feature specs, check this book) Example: “As an unlogged user, when I go to my account page, then I am redirected to the login page.” Task one technical aspect of a story they form the sprint backlog 8
  9. 9. Scrum for dummies Roles Product Owner unique customer proxy for the team / backlog maintainer / product aficionado / Mr. Visionary-Knowledgeable Scrum Master Scrum guru, peacemaker Team Self-organized bunch of co-located versatile people (specialization is E V I L) Team = (PO+SM+devs+testers) 9
