  1. 1. AGILE U S I N G Project Management
  2. 2. WHAT IS THE AGILE METHOD? Agile is an alternative to traditional development. The Agile approach allows for flexibility in a fluctuating environment by always embracing change. Teams work in incremental stages, called sprints, to better accommodate predictable and unpredictable occurrences in a project, specifically that of software development.
  3. 3. Agile is all about adapting. The Agile methodology acknowledges that problems arise or changes must occur in any given situation. By allowing teams to work in sprints, this ensures that products are finished on time with little to no mistakes. WHY USE AGILE?
  4. 4. SO WHAT THE HECK IS SCRUM? Scrum is a collaborative approach. Scrum utilizes fixed-length iterations. By doing this, projects are completed in a timely and effective manner. 90% of companies that use Agile methods take the Scrum approach. Milestones are created to help structure sprints and keep the project rolling. It improves teamwork and communication to get the project done faster and will less chance for failure.
  5. 5. OWNER The product owner understands the product value. She manages the backlog, adjusts project priorities, and makes the final call on product completion. The Scrum master is the ultimate coach. She is the leader, troubleshooter, and, well, master of the team. She resolves any conflicts and adapts agile principles to the project sprint. TEAMMASTER W H A T M A K E S S C R U M A S U C C E S S ? The scrum team is made up of 5-7 diverse skill sets; however, each member is cross-trained. They are a pack that shares everything together. Scrum roles are crucial to a successful sprint.
  6. 6. THE PROCESS Scrum is a lightweight process framework. Backlogs & planning Sprint Daily scrum Sprint review & retrospective
  7. 7. Both the product & sprint backlogs are crucial to planning. The product owner creates the product backlog by building a product 'wish list.' The team then takes that list and prioritizes necessities into the sprint backlog. All of this takes place during the sprint planning period. THE BACKLOGS
  8. 8. IT'S ALL ABOUT THE FEEDBACK, BABY The Agile method focuses hard on individuals and interactions more so than a process. Having daily Scrum (stand up) meetings helps teams stay on track and work better together by going over yesterday's completed work and today's new tasks. Post-iteration (sprint) meetings also allow for teams to determine what changes to make for the next sprint. increase in completion time on projects using Agile vs traditional methods 64% Hold daily stand up meetings.
