Scrum also called agile development is an important methodology to follow for software development technology applications. This approach uses small changes with high client contact impacting the end-user. The whole project or product development will be split into sprints to get the minimum viable product at each iteration.
Scrum teams start with the daily standup meeting. The reason it’s called standup is it limited 10 to 15 minutes and no one ever sits down. During this daily meeting teams share with each other what they accomplished yesterday and what they plan to do today. Also they will review the backlog items daily to re-prioritize the tasks. Clients provide daily feedback as to the inherent benefit of what’s been developed and how they will actually use it.
Scrum is a great way to ensure the final product performs exactly the way you need it. Nothing is scarier than having the development team run off to a dark corner and write code for three months only to find they didn’t understand the client requirements correctly.
Macrosoft uses scrum in the vast majority of our projects. As a result clients are delighted with the work as they have been along for the ride during the entire development journey.
