A Quick Guide to Scrum

  1. 1. A Quick Guide to Scrum Sharif Accelerator - July 1st 2017
  2. 2. Hadi Sinaee Co-Founder @ Hodhod IM @HadiSinaee ● B.Sc Software Engineering - Kashan University ● M.Sc Artificial Intelligence - Sharif University of Technology ● Currently NodeJS Developer @HodHod
  3. 3.
  4. 4. The Scrum Framework
  5. 5. Scrum When / Why ● Fast feedback loop Requirements change frequently ● All steps is not known in advance
  6. 6. Elements Building blocks of framework ● Scrum Team ● Scrum Events ● Scrum Artifacts
  7. 7. 1. Scrum Artifacts
  8. 8. Artifacts 3 main artifacts ● Product Backlog ● Sprint Backlog ● Increment
  9. 9. “An ordered list of everything that might be needed in the product and is the single source of requirements for any changes to be made to the product. It is never complete!” Product Backlog
  10. 10. Requirement 1 Requirement 2 Requirement 3 Requirement 4 ... Product Backlog(PB) Product Backlog Item (PBI) User Story - Sample Format Title As <Type of User> I want to <Some Goal> so that <A Business Value> Acceptance Criteria (AC): ☑ Condition 1 ☑ Condition 2 Size: 1/2/3/5/8/?
  11. 11. Sprint Backlog “A forecast by the Dev. Team about what functionality will be in the next Increment. Actually, it is a set of PBIs. It makes visible the necessary works to meet the sprint goal.”
  12. 12. Requirement 1 Requirement 2 Requirement 3 Requirement 4 ... Product Backlog(PB) As <Type of User> I want to <Some Goal> so that <A Business Value> Acceptance Criteria (AC): ☑ Condition 1 ☑ Condition 2 Requirement 1 Requirement 2 Requirement 3 Sprint Backlog(SB)
  13. 13. Increment “It is the sum of all the PBIs completed during a Sprint. At the end of a Sprint, the new Increment must be “Done” which means it must be in useable condition and meet the definition of “Done” ”
  14. 14. 2. Scrum Team
  15. 15. Roles “Everybody’s finding their roles. It’s like pieces of the puzzle are coming together for us - Aaron Cook” ● Product Owner ● Development Team ● Scrum Master
  16. 16. Development Team “ It consists of professionals who do the work of delivering a potentially releasable Increment of “Done” product at the end of each Sprint. It is self-organizing and cross-functional”
  17. 17. Product Owner “He/She is responsible for maximizing the value of the product and the work of the Dev. Team. The sole person responsible for managing the PB.”
  18. 18. Scrum Master “ He/She is responsible for ensuring Scrum is understood and enacted. Facilitating Scrum events as requested or needed. Removing impediments to the Development Team’s progress.”
  19. 19. 3. Scrum Events
  20. 20. Events “We meet the people we’re supposed to when the time is just right - Alyson Noel” ● Sprint ● Sprint Planning ● Daily Meetings (Stand-ups) ● Sprint Review ● Sprint Retrospect
  21. 21. Sprint “A time-box of one-month or less. Each Sprint may be considered a project with no more than a one-month horizon. Each Sprint has a definition of what is to be built.”
  22. 22. Sprint Planning “The work to be performed in the Sprint is planned at the Sprint Planning. This plan is created by the collaborative work of the entire Scrum Team.”
  23. 23. Sprint Planning - Point Estimation 1 2 3 5 8 ● “User Story Point Estimation” is about estimating the size (very small to extra large) of a story. ● You can use Fibonacci numbers as the base numbers for a size of a story. ● First, find a PBI with size of 2 which all Dev. Team members agree on. ● For every user story, all Dev. Team members should individually raise one of these cards as their estimation of the size of the given story. ● All members have to agree on a same number for a story. ● Based on your previous team velocity, select PBIs. Sample fib cards. All members have a copy of these cards
  24. 24. Sprint Planning - Velocity ● Team Velocity(TV) simply is the average of the previous Sprint Velocities. ● Sprint Velocity(SV) for a specific Sprint is sum of the size of all completed PBIs. ● Example ○ We spent 3 sprints, each with SV of 9, 14, 19 respectively. ○ TV = (9+14+19)/3 ● For the first time, there is no velocity. Just guess a number based on your knowledge. ○ Remember: Scrum is based on what is done! PBI 3 …. S: 1 To Do :( PBI 1 …. S: 1 PBI 4 …. S: 8 PBI 5 …. S: 8 PBI 2 …. S: 3 In Progress :) Done :D Scrum Board (Sprint 3): SV = 3 + 8 + 8 = 19
  25. 25. Daily Meetings “It is a 15-minute time-boxed event for the Dev. Team to synchronize activities and create a plan for the next 24 hours. What did you do? What was the obstacles? What will you do today?”
  26. 26. Daily Meetings - Burn Down Chart ● It is a Sprint Tracking mechanism. ● It can be computed by the following: ○ X-axis: days from beginning of the sprint to the end of it ○ Y-axis: measurement unit(story- point here) ○ For each day on x-axis, compute sum of number of remaining units ( here story point number) and then plot the point on the Y-axis. ● Your plotted line has to be(approximately) on the straight line(ideal). ● If it is not, there is a problem! Find it out! Discuss it at Retrospect Meeting if it is necessary.
  27. 27. Sprint Review “It is held at the end of the Sprint to inspect the Increment and adapt the PB if needed. Scrum Team and key stakeholders invited by the Product Owner. The Product Owner explains what PBIs have been “Done” and what has not been “Done”.”
  28. 28. Sprint Retrospect “It is an opportunity for the Scrum Team to inspect itself and create a plan for improvements to be enacted during the next Sprint.”
